With the development of fiber optic communication, FTTH has been the final solution of fiber optic network.  It adapts to the demand on high speed and massive transmission of optical network signals from many users. In FTTH access projects, common fiber optic cable cannot meet the requests of cable distribution in mechanical ability and tensile properties. Under the situation of market’s needs, FTTH drop cable with low bending radius and high intensity has been widely used in FTTH’s access network.

Cable Structure:
The optical fiber unit is positioned in the center. Two parallel strength members are placed at two sides. Then, the cable is completed with a jacket.


  • Low purchasing and construction costs
  • Soft and flexible, good bending performance
  • Simple structure, compact and light weight, and high practicability
  • Two parallel strength members ensure good performance of crush resistance to protect the fiber
  • Special low-bend-sensitivity fiber provides high bandwidth and excellent communication transmission property
  • Novel notch design for easy stripping, and easy connection without splicing or with splicing, simplify the installation and maintenance


  • FTTx FTTH project
  • Installation in small bending environment
