Commscope Inc. today introduced the Systimax Heavy Duty Indoor/Outdoor Fiber Optic Cable for Airport Applications in an effort to safeguard the vital airport network.

Security, the company says, continues to be an issue for airports around the world. With that in mind, the cable is optimized for high-stress airport applications and other sites where cable vulnerability is a concern.

It incorporates a design with a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) outer jacket and a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) inner jacket for greater resistance to hazardous liquids

Commscope says the product meets the standard environmental requirements of an outside plant cable, but also is compatible with FAA-E-2761 requirements for OSP cables installed at airports.
