• Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC) with SWR®

    Features:

    • Collapsible ribbon reduces size of cable compared to other encapsulated or pliable ribbon technologies
    • Design optimizes the fiber packing density making WTC-SWR cables the smallest ribbon cables without compromising robustness of the cable
    • Small-diameter cable allows more optical fibers to be placed into crowded or limited-space pathways
    • Water-blocked core
    • Light weight for easy handling in the field compared to traditional cables
    • Completely Gel-free for reduced time to access fiber and prep for splicing
    • Armored and non-armored packages

    Applications:

    • Data Center Inter-building Connections
    • Access Provider Metro Rings
    • Service Provider FTTx
    • Cable TV Subscriber Networks
    • Metro Rail Track-side Network Links
    • Suitable for Aerial Lashing, Pulled-in-duct, Air-Jetted-in-Duct
    • Campus LAN

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The 250 µm fiber/250 µm pitch Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC), with SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR®), is an ultra-high density outside plant cable designed specifically for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or access markets. It is compliant with the latest issue of the outside plant cable standard, Telcordia GR-20. With an ultra-high density and a new ribbon technology called SpiderWeb Ribbon®, WTC provides the smallest cable diameter and lowest weight, high-fiber count ribbon cable in the industry. WTC with SWR® cables are available in fiber counts from 144 to 1,728.
 
SWR® is a bonded fiber ribbon design allowing for either a highly efficient ribbon splicing or an individual fiber breakout splicing process. This flexibility allows for a single cable design to cover a diverse set of applications from access networks to high-fiber count mass fusion splicing. With the ability to roll and conform, the SWR® provides for ultra-high density packaging in the WTC.
