Cable constructions for subscriber access networks
Thus Nexans Deutschland Industries & Co. KG has developed suitable cable designs accordingly in order to insure investment safe generic cabling considering the increasing bandwidth demands and moving numbers of subscribers.
Basically the following cable design groups shall be manufactured:
( Copper- and copper/OF-hybrid cables for use up to 30 MHz and outdoor applications
( Copper- and copper/OF-hybrid cables for use up to 100 MHz and outdoor applications
( Universal cables in copper- and copper/OF-hybrid technique for use up to 30/100 MHz
for indoor and outdoor applications
With respect to a high life expectancy all new cable constructions offer as minimum require-ments longitudinal and lateral water-tightness by employing LAP-moisture barrier sheathing or corrugated steel tape design regarding an additional reliable rodent protection and special filling of the core spaces.
High quality star quads or pairs using copper conductor diameters of 0.6 mm or 0,8 mm are manufactured as a standard programme. Cable constructions to be used up to 100 MHz are normally performed with individual pair screening. The electrical characteristics meet the requirements of international IEC-standards.
With respect to turn-key-solutions for all cable designs the necessary link components, like jointing sleeves and termination boxes are available. These accessories ensure the continuity of all screening materials for the total transmission link.
