Fiber Optic Cable
Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC) with SWR®
Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC), with SpiderWeb® Ribbon (SWR), is an ultra-high density
outside plant cable designed specifically for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or access markets. It
is compliant with the latest issue of the outside plant cable standard, Telcordia GR-20.
With an ultra-high density and a new ribbon technology called SpiderWeb Ribbon, WTC
provides the smallest cable diameter and lowest weight, high-fiber count ribbon cable in
the industry. With fiber counts from 144 fibers to 1,728 fibers, the cable is available in
dielectric or double jacket single armor.
SWR is a bonded fiber ribbon design allowing for either a highly efficient ribbon splicing
or an individual fiber breakout splicing process. This flexibility allows for a single cable
design to cover a diverse set of applications from access networks to high-fiber count mass
fusion splicing. With the ability to roll and conform, the SWR provides for ultra-high density
packaging in the WTC.
Features
• Access Ready Construction (ARC)
Completely gel-free construction with easy-to-access and identify optical fiber circuits.
• Spider Web Ribbon (SWR) optical fiber technology
Easily ribbonized for mass fusion splicing. SWR is compacted and routed like individual fibers. Ideal for organizing slack loops
in splice enclosures as there is no preferential bending of ribbon.
• Significantly higher fiber density compared to traditional ribbon cables
Offers ability to expand capacity of existing pathways and allows use of smaller, lower cost duct systems.
• Smaller cable diameters and cable weights
Means longer reel lengths that allow for lower scrap rates, easier handling of reels at the site and reduced transportation costs.
• Completely dry water-blocking technology
Reduces time required to prep cable-end and mid-span access resulting in labor savings.
• Compact ribbon bundles
Reduces enclosure/splice tray size requirements allowing for smaller telecommunications space allocation.
• Armored and non-armored packages
Supports all the standard cable deployment options typically found in the OSP environment including, duct, direct buried and aerial.
• Fully qualified to Telcordia GR-20
Provides assurance that the cable will support optical fiber network transport functions now and into the future.

Fiber Optic Cable
Riser Single-Jacket I/O Loose Tube
(LV Series SJ)
Indoor/outdoor stranded loose tube combines the robust mechanical and
environmental characteristics of an outside plant cable with the flexibility
of an inside plant riser cable. By installing indoor/outdoor stranded loose tube,
costly splice locations entering into a building are avoided, being routed directly
from the outside plant to telecommunications closets, or main distribution
frames (MDF) through the riser of a building and eliminating the "50-foot rule."
Indoor/Outdoor Stranded Design loose tube cable is moisture and U.V. resistant,
S-Z stranded for easy mid-span access, listed for OFNR use per UL standards,
and can be used in both duct and lashed applications.

Fiber Optic Cable
Extreme Low Temp LSZH Double Jacket
I/O Loose Tube (LA Series)
The LA-Series is specially designed for applications that demand reliable performance in
harsh environment installations. The cable construction incorporates a variety of packaging
technologies that allow the product to operate in extremely low temperatures, mechanically
abusive installations and highly caustic and acidic environments. The key to the reliable,
ultra-high performance is the specially designed cable core and the dual layer jacketing system.
The cable core is constructed using materials and engineered geometry that optimizes
the isolation of the optical fibers from the stresses and strains imparted on the cable and
commonly realized in extreme environments. The outer jacketing is designed to further
protect the ruggedized core assembly with a multiplying system made up of a double-ply,
low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) flame resistant jacketing system that integrates a strong
layer of aramid yarn between the inner and outer sheaths.

Fiber Optic Cable
OSP MicroCore®
Telcordia GR-20 Micro-Technology
Air-Blown Loose Tube
AFL OSP MicroCore® cable series is designed for outside plant installation in microduct
conduit systems. The unique, high-fiber density geometry yields a cable construction that
can safely accommodate 12 up to 432 fibers and can be blown into microducts ranging in
inside diameters from 10 mm to 16 mm.
For example, with a 7-way 12.7 mm x 10 mm (conduit with seven microducts) in place,
the system designer has the flexibility to install from 12 to 144 fibers per microduct.
With this approach, only the number of fibers required for initial networking requirements
need to be installed. Then as future network upgrades and expansions are required,
the spare microducts can be jetted with addition OSP MicroCore cables without having
to add additional pathway space and the associated installation labor cost.
Applications
• Designed for long -haul, middle-mile
and metro-loop
• Campus inter-building backbone
distribution
• Low-cost fiber upgrade
migration strategies
Features
• GR-20 compliant water-blocked cable core and buffer tubes
• Colored binder threads for easily identifiable optical fiber bundles
• High installation tensile load rating
• OD compatible with 10 mm to 16 mm inside diameter microducts
• 12 up to 432 fibers

Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber-In-A-Box
AFL’s "Fiber-In-A-Box" solution offers contractors lightweight, easy to use cable packaging with "out of the box" disbursement of fiber cable. No reel supports or pay-off's
are required. Simply set the box down in a convenient place, unlock the built-in braking
mechanism and begin pulling. Adjust the braking mechanism to apply the amount of pulling
tension required. Stack and configure boxes together to disburse cable from several reels at
the same time. Available in lengths of 1000, 2000 and 3000 feet, this unique cable package
solution will save contractors valuable time and cost.
Features/Benefits
• Easy count printing – descending marks (feet or meters) indicating amount of cable
remaining on reel
• Light weight and easy to transport with grips on both sides of the box for easy handling
• Eliminates the need for reel supports and cable spooling equipment
• Unique braking mechanism allows reel to be locked in place within carton during
transport and provides control of tension during cable pulls
• Boxes can be stacked and configured to support easy pay-off of multiple cable runs
• Wording under feed-through slot reminds installers of proper pulling methods for
optical cable
• Factory packaging ensures cable is not "over-stressed" in non-factory cable cutting
operations where personnel may not be sensitive to proper handling of fiber optic cable
• Available in lengths of 1000, 2000 and 3000 feet, depending on cable diameter
• Easy access to reel from top allows installers to repackage excess cable removed from box
• Easy way to organize, store and manage short lengths of excess cable
Applications
• Horizontal cabling / Fiber-to-the-Desk
• Fiber Drops within MDUs
• Short-to-medium length cable runs between buildings
Ordering Information
Add suffix "-XMFBOX" to part number to specify "Fiber-In-A-Box" solution
where X indicates length of the cable in thousands of feet (1, 2, or 3).

Fiber Optic Cable
Low Smoke Zero Halogen Distribution Cable
The Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Distribution cable family from AFL offers all of
the benefits of a traditional 900 µm based optical cable while supporting compliance to stringent international standards for jacket material composition and flame
safety. Additionally, AFL's LSZH distribution cable design complies with UL 1666 and
UL 1685 standards for OFNR-LS criteria. Circular Premise cable based on 900 µm tight
buffer constructions provide the performance and density demanded by today's optical
network installation demands. These cable designs support either direct or indirect
termination schemes while enabling efficient routing through industry-standard Fiber
Management Systems. Cable constructions support the application of Industry-leading
multimode fiber as well as single-mode solutions. Both fiber configurations are available
in bend-insensitive designs as well.

Fiber Optic Cable
12-144F Sub-unitized Premise
MicroCore® 2.0
The next generation of Sub-unitized MicroCore Cables represent the evolution of high
performance premise cabling. Enabling the highest density infrastructures, significant
savings in both space and fiber management and routing infrastructures are realized
when deploying cables from this family. Constructed of the highest quality materials
and to exacting industry standards, these small-diameter cables provide the solution
sought-out by today’s structured cabling professionals. Each sub-cable is independently
qualified and is suitable for individual routing paths within the rack/panel architecture.
This enables a flexibility of design and deployment not available in comparable highdensity designs. Designed for direct termination and supportive of both single-fiber and
multifiber architectures, this cable family should serve as the backbone to any deployed
system. Cables are constructed with AFL MicroCore technology consistent with a long
line of market leading designs.
Applications
• Headend termination
to a fiber "backbone"
• Termination of fiber rack systems
• Multifloor deployment where select
fibers are used at each floor
• Intra-building "backbones"
• MTP/MPO or MTP to
break-out terminations

Fiber Optic Cable
NEW
Sub-unitized Premise MicroCore®
with SpiderWeb® Ribbon (SWR®) Technology
SWR Technology
The third generation of our Sub-Unitized Premise MicroCore cables is another astounding
evolution of high performance premise cabling. Enabling even greater pathway density
than our 2.0 version, the 3.0 revolutionizes cable deployment and allows the end
user to realize savings in space, routing infrastructures and fiber management.
Combining the highest quality materials with rigorous testing to industry standards,
this generation builds on the same quality of construction as the previous versions of our
Sub-Unitized Premise MicroCore cables. Also similar to previous version is the employment
of stand-alone sub cables. Each sub-cable is independently qualified and is suitable for
individual routing paths within the rack/panel architecture. This flexibility of design and
deployment is not available in comparable high density designs. Designed for direct
termination, and supportive of both single-fiber and multi-fiber architectures, this cable family
is capable of serving as the backbone in any deployed system.
SpiderWeb Ribbon (SWR) is a bonded fiber design allowing for either a highly efficient
ribbonizing application or for individual fiber break-outs. This flexibility allows for the
application of a single cable design to cover a diverse set of applications. High density
round designs allow for the most efficient use of space and materials, resulting in a cost
effective solution.
SpiderWeb Ribbon Technology
Applications
Features
Benefits
•In-building cable runs where space
is a premium
•Trunk applications where flexibility
and small bend radii are required
to route cable
•High density cable areas like data
centers and central offices
•Lower cost cable runs where easy
handling of tight buffered fibers not
needed because cable will be spliced
to factory terminated pigtails
•Plenum NFPA 262 Rated
•Tested to meet or exceed EIA/TIA
568-B3,Telcordia GR-409-CORE (Issue
2 - Horizontal Backbone Cables) and
ANSI/ICEA S-83-596
•CSA 22.2#232 (FT6)
•Compliant to Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS)
•Flexible dielectric FRP central strength
member
•All aramid tensile strength members
within sub-units
•High fiber density - more channels
in less space
•No preferential bend direction typically
found in stacked ribbon designs
•Small diameter/ superior bend
performance
•Each sub-unit can stand alone
as a rated cable
•Sub-units are suitable for direct
termination with round boot MPO

Indoor/Outdoor Plenum Distribution cables are specified for campus network cabling
between buildings where interbuilding lengths are short enough that the installer can
recognize savings from the lower costs of terminating tight buffered cables.
For indoor applications the cable is OFNP listed. For outdoor applications the cable is
manufactured with an outer jacket that incorporates a UV stabilizer for protection against

ingress is restricted to a repairable
length of several meters and
minimizes overall replacement cost)
• Outer jacket is moisture-resistant,
fungus-resistant and UV resistant
suitable for outdoor use
• With an overall OFNP (Plenum) rating,
this cable is suitable for installations
in most spaces requiring UL flame
ratings: Plenum, Riser, General
Purpose and outside plant

Fiber Optic Cable
Mini-Span® ADSS Cable
AFL Mini-Span All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) cable is designed for outside plant
aerial and duct applications in local and campus network loop architectures. From poleto-build to town-town installations, the Mini-Span cabling system, which includes cables,
suspension, dead end and termination enclosures, offers a comprehensive transmission
circuit infrastructure with proven, high-reliability performance. See AFL’s Fiber Optic Cable
Hardware catalog for more information. As the ADSS cabling concept implies, a separate
messenger support wire hanging system is not required, greatly reducing installation time
and improving upfront and maintenance labor costs.
Temperature Range
Mini-Span includes fiber counts up to 144 optical fibers and any type or combination
of single-mode and laser-optimized multimode fibers with the cable. Pole-to-Pole span
lengths range from 50 feet to over 1000 feet.
Operating: -40ºC to +70ºC
Storage:
-50ºC to +70ºC
Installation: -30ºC to +70ºC

Fiber Optic Cable
Flex-Span™ ADSS Fiber Optic Cable
Flex-Span ADSS expands on AFL's single jacket ADSS portfolio. Flex-Span designs are
optimized for a broader combination of fiber counts and span lengths, providing ADSS
system designers more flexibility in their product selection. As its name indicates, there is
no support or messenger wire required, so installation is achieved in a single pass.
Flex-Span ADSS includes fiber counts up to 144 optical fibers and any type or
combination of single-mode or multimode fibers within the cable. Pole-to-pole span
lengths range from 50 ft. to over 1,000 ft.
Temperature Range
Features
Operating: -40ºC to +70ºC
•• Suitable for use on distribution lines
•• Gel-filled buffer tubes are S-Z stranded
for easy mid-span access
•• Cable is water-blocked using
dry core technology, therefore
no messy flooding compounds
•• Design details listed below for span
lengths up to 1100 ft (457 m) and
fiber counts up to 144
•• Requires the use of formed wire
dead ends
Storage: -50ºC to +70ºC

Wedge Dead End
(to be used only on Standard ADSS Cable up to 0.890" diameter, 144 fibers)
AFL offers wedge dead ends that ease and speed ADSS cable installation. The ADSS Wedge
Dead End is ideal in crowded distribution environments because its shorter length allows
for safer and efficient installation. The Wedge Dead End comes with all parts assembled.
The side plates are properly aligned with spacers and self-locking hex bolts, as well as
retainers. Lubricated wedges are pre-installed inside the body of the dead end.
ADEW10J1-AL535
Caution: The load ratings shown here are based on performance results of certain cable configurations and may not
be representative of all manufacturers’ ADSS cable designs. AFL strongly recommends that before using this product,
you contact AFL to obtain the recommended load rating and to verify that the wedge dead end has been qualified for
use with the proposed cable. AFL will perform a qualification test at no charge.

Trunnion Assemblies
AFL offers trunnions with various mounting capabilities: bolted, banded or standoff.
Trunnions reduce installation costs by functioning as a pull-through during installation
(maximum line angle for stringing is 15° total, 7.5° per side, number of structures not to
exceed 30). No block or pulley is needed provided these conditions are met.
Features
• May be used as a pull-through by removing the bushing inserts
• High-strength aluminum
• Smaller and more compact design
• Facilitates faster installation
• Color-coded range taking inserts for easy identification
• Versatile mounting styles to fit different structure types: bolted, banded or standoff
• Banding and pole hardware supplied by customer
• Lowers the total cost of installation
• Span Length: 600 ft. - NESC Heavy

Wood Pole Guide Clamp for ADSS Cable
Guide clamps are typically two groove clamps used to guide the cable to splice locations. Clamps are spaced 5 to 8 feet apart to help maintain alignment of the cable
down the towers or poles. The clamps may be bolted to the tower or poles or adaptors,
and can be supplied for the steel towers, steel poles and concrete poles.

Spiral Vibration Damper
for ADSS or OPGW Cable
Spiral Vibration Dampers have a helically formed damping section sized for interplay
of damper and cable to provide the action/reaction motion that opposed the natural
vibration wave. A smaller gripping section gently grips the cable so that cable and fiber
are not damaged or distorted and there is no optical signal loss. These PVC Spiral
dampers are recommended for the ADSS cable when the combination of span length
and tension indicate by vibration review that external vibration protection is required.

The Leader in Fiber Optic Training
Since 1987, the Light Brigade, AFL’s training division, has trained more than 50,000 technicians, installers, engineers, and designers
from a wide variety of industries: telephony, broadband cable, utilities, media broadcast, industrial, manufacturing, mining, government,
aerospace, along
with various branches of the military.
Whether your application is voice, video, and/or data, or you are a service provider, contractor, or end user, The Light Brigade can
provide critical training for your personnel to lower operating costs and improve installation efficiency.
Instructors
Our professional instructors and technicians are technically skilled and have a variety of real world practical experience in all aspects
of fiber optics. With experience in applications such as communications, signaling, security, and network control, our instructors
provide valuable insight into the design, installation, and operation of state-of-the-art fiber optic systems.
Hands-on Training
Extensive hands-on training sessions help our attendees to learn fiber optics by doing rather than watching. Attendees spend
class time building, testing, and troubleshooting an actual fiber optic system. In each of our courses, the ratio of students to instructors
during the hands-on sessions assures that there is direct personal interaction and attention to each student.
Technology-based
In our training classes, you receive an objective viewpoint, not a sales pitch. We teach fiber techniques that are applicable to any
product, and select the best available equipment and supplies from many different manufacturers. You can choose to develop your
skills using our state-of-the-art equipment and accessories, or bring your own to learn how to use it more effectively.
Relevant
Our course materials are constantly updated to stay in step with current and emerging technologies. All of our materials
and techniques are written and taught based on the latest standards, recommendations, and codes from ANSI, ITU, TIA/EIA,
IEEE, IEC, Telcordia, MSHA, NEC, NESC, and others.
Continuing Support
To assure continued long-term support, we offer technical assistance to our class attendees. If you have a question or need
help after the class is over, our staff is there to help.
