Corning cable system (also known as CCS) provides a very complete optic fiber cable product line for enterprise networks. Enterprise fiber network market includes universities, businesses, medical compuses, and more. Application types very a lot from indoor to outdoor. So let’s dive into the types of fiber cables Corning provides in this market.
Corning’s Indoor Fiber Cables for Enterprise Networks
Indoor Ribbon Fiber Cable
Corning’s Ribbon Fiber Optic Cables are designed for use in plenum, riser and general purpose environments for instrabuilding backbone installations and for high-fiber-count data centers. These cables consist of 2 to 216 fibers organized into 12 fiber ribbons inside a central tube. Dielectric strength members provide tensile strength while a specially formulated flame-retardant jacket allows the design to meet the requirements of the NFPA 262 flame test.
Indoor Loose Tube Fiber Cable
Corning’s MIC 250 cables utilize 250um color-coded optical fibers, surrounded by dielectric strength members with a flexible, flameretardant outer jacket. These cables are well suited for creating multi-fiber preconnectorized assembly as 12 fibers groupings enable compatibility with multi fiber optic connector. The flexible, flame retardant jacket and non-preferential bend axis allows installation in space-constrained areas and the all dielectric cable construction requires no grounding or bonding. These cables come in 62.5um, 50um and single mode versions, including Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet versions.
Indoor Tight Buffered Fiber Cable
Corning’s MIC Riser Cables are designed for use in riser and general purpose environments for intrabuilding backbone and horizontal installations. These multi-fiber cables use 900um TBII buffered fibers which makes easy, consistent stripping and facilitate termination. This cable has a dielectric central member, the fibers are surrounded by dielectric strength members and protected by a flame-retardant outer jacket. The all- dielectric cable construction requires no grounding or bonding, making these cables ideal for routing inside buildings including riser shafts, to the telecommunications rooms and workstations.
Corning’s Zipcord Riser Cables are designed for interconnect applications. Two 900 um tight buffered fibers are surrounded by aramid yarn dielectric strength members and a flame-retardant jacket. This cable design offers mechanical durability and flame resistance that meets UL-1666 requirements for riser and general building applications. This cable also meets requirements of the National Electric Code (NEC) Article 770 and the cables are OFNR and CSA FT-4 listed.
