Four-fiber ribbon CHESSINGTON, UK, April 29, 2009 – Fujikura Europe Ltd. has launched the C-Groove cable, a new design that enables fast access to fibers without compromising the structural integrity of the cable. This allows access to individual fibers within minutes, creating a 50 percent reduction in installation time for engineers. The proprietary Easy Split bend-insensitive ribbon fiber comprises 48 encapsulated fibers and offers a smaller diameter than conventional loose tube cable, allowing more space in the fiber ducts.
The key to the easy access provided by this cable is its C-shaped core. Once the outer coating is removed, the core remains intact, and fibers can be removed from the open face of the C-Groove. The four-fiber ribbon inside the lightweight cable can be separated into individual fibers in a few seconds via a de-ribbonizing tool, eliminating the need for mass fusion splicers and hot jacket strippers. Once the desired fibers have been extracted, the outer coating can be resealed by pressing the cover back over the cable. Because this process is repeatable, adding new subscribers to the FTTx is a simple procedure.
