Corning 48 Strand Singlemode Outdoor Armored Direct Burial Fiber Optic Cable - Black (Per Foot)

Reference#: 69153
Item#: COR-048ZUC-T4F22D20


Corning ALTOS Lite gel-free, single-jacket, single-armored cables with FastAccess technology are designed for direct-buried installations. The innovative FastAccess technology feature combined with the gel-free loose tube design simplifies removal of the cable jacket and accessing the buffer tubes. The gel-free design means the cables are fully water-blocked using craft-friendly water-swellable materials which makes cable access simple and require no clean up.The loose tube design uses Corning's SMF-28 Ultra fiber to provide reliable transmission parameters for a variety of voice, data, video and imaging applications. The flexible buffer tubes are easy to route in closures, and the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors while allowing easy midspan access.The single-armored construction provides additional crush and rodent protection.These cables have a medium-density polyethylene jacket that is rugged, durable and easy to strip.

ALTOS Lite FastAccess Technology

Corning's ALTOS Lite 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 water-blocking tapes and up to a 60 percent improvement in cable access time. These technologies also reduce the overall risk of inadvertent fiber damage by reducing the need for sharp cable access tools.
