Superior Essex Cat5e aluminum shielded 4 pair cable, for direct burial outdoor use.
The BBDe series of Outside Plant (OSP) CAT 5e products now have two new features: a) dry water blocking agent outside of the inner jacket (for BBDNE and BBDGE); and b) PFM gel in place of ETPR as a filling compound in the core for all three series.
These features make the BBDe series cables ideally suited for cell tower/WiMax tower applications where there are concerns about the filling compound or flooding compound potentially dripping.
These cables also fully comply with the performance requirements of TIA 568-C.2, which is something that some other OSP CAT 5e cables do not guarantee.
