LM200-Series OSP MicroCore® Cable


  • Telcordia GR-20 and IEC 60794-5-10 compliant cable designs provide assurance the OSP cabling system complies with industry-leading standards
  • Robust, kink-resistant buffer tubes reduce time and handling issues associated with enclosure build-outs
  • Optical fiber meets ITU-T 652D/G.657.A1 single-mode standard assuring that all of today’s FTTx and long-haul applications are supported
  • Low-friction jacketing system allows for longer jetting distances thus reducing scrap and labor costs
  • esigned for use in bundled micro-duct pathways allowing for future, optical circuit additions at a fraction of the cost compared to conventional, single-cable inner-duct installations
  • Tone-wire option is available


  • Long-haul, Local Loop FTTx, Campus Backbone connections for 10G, 40G and 100G network transmission speeds
  • Air-jetted into bundled micro-ducts
  • Ideal for congested pathway over-ride installations
  • Tone-Wire option is available

Product Description

AFL’s LM200-Series OSP MicroCore includes 24 through 432 fiber options. The product design integrates the latest technology, 200 μm buffered single-mode fiber which allows for reduced diameter cables compared to traditional OSP micro-cables. The foundation of the design is the multi-fiber-set, gel-filled buffer tube construction. The kink-resistant buffer tube contains multiple 12-fiber sets of color-coded fibers. Each set within the buffer tube is grouped using dual color-coded binder threads. The dry-blocked core is made up of six buffer tubes SZ-stranded around a central strength member. The low-friction, high-strength overall jacketing system protects the cable-core while providing an optimized cable package supporting high-speed, long-distance jetting performance.  LM200-Series cables are also available with tone-wire for cable/pathway locating.

The LM200-Series is the right choice for use in bundled micro-duct pathways allowing for future, incremental cable additions as network circuits and bandwidth requirements increase.

AFL now offers OSP MicroCore® tonable cables. The tonable feature allows network owners that deploy these high-density fiber cables within their underground cabling system the ability to locate them using standard electromagnetic locator devices.
