Description

Optical Fibre Cable

LIGHTspeed optical fibre cable is designed for voice, video and data applications including 10 Gigabit/s Ethernet (IEEE802.3ae).

This makes it the ideal future proof solution for rapidly evolving backbone and desktop requirements. All cables are compliant with ISO 11801, TIA/EIA 568B, and EN 50173.

Standard cables are multimode loose tube cables with a water and UV resistant outer sheath. However singlemode, tight buffered, and LSOH sheathed cables are available.
