Provider of fiber-optic products, AFL Telecommunications, has announced the new expanded Interconnect Premise MicroCore high-density optic cable product. The new interconnect cable encompasses a maximum of 48 optical fibers in one package.
The overall diameter of this interconnect cable is 4.8mm. The cable is ideal for supporting array-type MP/MT connectors that are of high density.
The integration of the dielectric members within the cable core allows the possibility of direct termination schemes, hence, avoiding bulky transitions. The cable’s round construction avoids the issue of preferential bend radii, which is in the conventional premise-stacked ribbons. The addition of the new OM4/OM3 50µm Graded-Index Laser-Optimized multimode fibers offers high-quality connection to fulfill the new bandwidth requirements of 40Gb Ethernet and other networks architectures.
