APRIL 21, 2008 -- AFL Telecommunications (search for AFL Telecommunications) claims it is setting a new standard for indoor/outdoor breakout fiber-optic cables with its new breakout cables.

Suitable for rugged applications and installations requiring increased performance, AFL's breakout cables feature a UV- and fungal-resistant semi-pressure extruded outer jacket. The jacket extrusion technology provides superior crush resistance, say company representatives, protecting a helically-stranded core of sub-units. The sub-units measure 2.5 mm, allowing for easy termination, and use a water-blocking aramid, which further protects the tight-buffered cable, explains the company.

Previously, AFL only offered indoor/outdoor distribution cables and indoor breakout cables. AFL says its new design combines the ruggedness of an indoor/outdoor cable with the functionality of a breakout cable.

The new design is riser-listed and available in fiber counts from two to 12. MSHA qualification is currently in process.
