Distribution Cable | Alker Fibre Optic Specialists

Distribution Cable

Distribution cable is the most popular indoor cable, as it is small in size and light in weight, contain several tight-buffered fibres bundled under the same jacket with Kevlar strength members and sometimes fibre glass rod reinforcement to stiffen the cable and prevent kinking. The fibres are double buffered and can be directly terminated, but because their fibres are not individually reinforced, these cables need to be broken out with a breakout box or terminated inside a patch panel or junction box to protect individual fibres.[1]
