Both cables are CPR-rated (B2CA) and riser-rated (OFNR-LS).
“AFL’s MicroCore product family offers one of the most diverse and highest fiber density product offerings in the industry,” explained Stephen Porach, PE, RCDD, Senior Product Line Manager. “Adding these cables enables us to expand our support for customers with global footprints and provide a true end-to-end solution.”
