Recent Developments in Mini-Unit Cable,
SIECOR CORP HICKORY NC
The Mini-Bundle cable design was introduced two years ago as a high fiber density design. Data was presented on developmental cables and a first installation. Since that time more than 30,000 km of fiber has been cabled using the design. Applications have included duct, aerial and direct buried as well as special designs including underwater. Performance data obtained in the field and in the lab are reported for these cables of various designs. Splicing procedures are addressed. The extension of the design to single mode fibers is described and the versatility is demonstrated by examples of special cables. Author
