AFL, a global manufacturer of fiber optic cable and accessories, has added to its tactical fiber optic cable line by introducing micro-tactical cable. Designed for rapid deployment in networks that require high mechanical performance specifications, AFL’s micro-tactical cable combines ruggedness with ultra-high fiber density. The military-grade cable withstands high tensile loads, severe crushing forces, repeated impacts and extreme temperatures.
With fiber counts up to 96, the higher fiber density allows for longer deployment lengths without sacrificing bandwidth, the company says, adding that with longer assembly lengths, optical connections are reduced thereby enhancing network performance.
AFL offers a variety of tactical cable jacket materials enabling the cable to be used in areas where it may be exposed to high temperatures, wet locations, industrial chemicals and severe mechanical stresses. The micro-tactical cable is designed for the broadcast industry, as well as military, mining, rail and petrochemical applications.
