AFL MicroCore® is an advanced Blown Fiber Optic Cable system for underground duct networks. The MicroCore product line is a complete solution with designs suitable for many applications and needs from backbone networks to FTTx. Whether the need is for high fiber density or small cable diameter, the MicroCore range has the solution. Designs are always based on minimal cable and duct diameters for cost effective installation and materials.
MicroCore cables are jetted through a network of microducts using compressed air. Conduit systems can be laid and microducts and cable can be blown in as and when required. This gives installers the flexibility of deploying fiber only when needed, thereby reducing initial investment costs. Making provisions for future installations also means that only the very latest fiber optic technology is used and therefore scaled to changing market demands.
The MicroCore system can be used for overriding existing networks and conduits, which reduces network disruption and expensive excavation costs and permits during installation. MicroCore cable is lightweight and flexible made with a specially designed low friction jacket to enable greater jetting lengths to reduce time and cost.
