Superior Essex has introduced a telco outside plant (OSP) hybrid cable optimized to support Class 2 line powering of remote devices while supplying data over fiber-optic cable. The fiber cable targets next-generation small cell deployments and rural CAF-II projects using digital subscriber line access multipliers (DSLAMs) and passive optical network (PON) systems.
The cables can also be used in both brownfield and greenfield applications, boasting 25 pairs of 22 AWG twisted copper pairs and up to 192 optical fibers.
“We are thrilled to introduce an innovative cable design that offers the capability to deliver power and fiber under one jacket deep into the network,” says Robin Gainsford, director of broadband technology at Superior Essex.
