JUNE 29, 2010 -- Draka Communications Americas has introduced a new line of fiber cables designed for FTTH installation inside residential multi-dwelling units (MDUs) and commercial multi-tenant units (MTUs). This riser-rated product is available in color-coded 6-fiber or 12-fiber units and is intended for use with the wall-mounted conduit systems typically found in residential hallways or office corridors.

The newest addition to the ezINTERCONNECT cable family, Draka Indoor Bundle Drop is part of a continuing expansion of MDU fiber cable products aimed to reduce the time and cost of fiber deployment inside apartments, condominiums, and retail centers. The Indoor Bundle Drop can provide the installer with time and cost savings by enabling efficient and rapid deployment to multiple locations on the same floor, Draka says.

Draka adds that its Indoor Bundle Drop has undergone stringent qualifications to guarantee compliance to industry-standard performance requirements. For example, the product has completed a test program conducted by an accredited independent testing laboratory.

Available immediately, Draka's Indoor Bundle Drop product leverages Draka’s bend-insensitive optical fiber technology including Ultra Bend Insensitive Fiber (UBIF) BendBright-Elite that provides low loss in radii as small as 5 mm. The Indoor Bundle Drop may be pre-connectorized for “plug and play” applications and fitted with a pulling sock to facilitate routing through wall penetrations. The product is lightweight and flame retardant, and individual subunits are uniquely identified for traceability.
