Draka Communications Americas has released a new optical fiber cable product for use in FTTH MDU applications.

Draka ezINTERCONNECT Ruggedized Indoor cables, available in standard and heavy-duty designs, address all potential installation challenges expected in MDU applications, the company says.

Both cable designs utilize Draka’s BendBright-XS bend-insensitive single mode optical fiber, which meets and exceeds the stringent ITU-T G. 657. B standard bending requirements, while maintaining backwards compatibility with existing single mode fibers (ITU-T G. 652.D).

When used per manufacturer’s recommended practices, the cables support a variety of installation methods, including stapling.

The standard design is 2.9 mm in diameter and supports accepted installation practices. The heavy-duty design is 4.8 mm in diameter and provides an added level of protection for particularly rigorous installation conditions.
