Corning Optical Communications MiniXtend® Cable with Binderless* FastAccess® Technology

March 3, 2017
Corning MiniXtend® Cable with Binderless FastAccess® Technology is an all-dielectric loose tube cable designed for microduct applications and features industry-leading fiber density. The Binderless FastAccess Technology improves cable handling and reduces access time up to 70% while lowering risk of cable and fiber damage.
Corning MiniXtend® Cable with Binderless FastAccess® Technology is an all-dielectric loose tube cable designed for microduct applications and features industry-leading fiber density. The Binderless FastAccess Technology improves cable handling and reduces access time up to 70% while lowering risk of cable and fiber damage. The MiniXtend Cable design reduces the cable diameter by up to 50% (versus traditional loose tube cables), which improves fiber density for duct applications and also enables new applications that can reduce total install cost by up to 60%.
This cable also features Corning SMF-28® Ultra single-mode fiber, which combines industry-leading attenuation and improved macrobend performance in one fiber. SMF-28 Ultra fiber is ITU-T Recommendation G.652.D compliant and exceeds the requirements of the ITU-T Recommendation G.657.A1 standard.

Judge's comment: "Excellent combination of new tech that facilitates installation in growing market (air-blown cable) and high density enabled with G.657 fiber."

*Corning's patented binderless FastAccess® technology refers to the combination of a Corning FastAccess technology jacket with an innovative technology used to bind cable construction through the manufacturing process, eliminating the use of binder yarns and waterblocking tapes.
