CommScope has launched its Low Count Fiber Drop cable, designed specifically for true one or two fiber drop applications in FTTx networks. The Low Count Fiber Drop cable provides operators the flexibility of deploying a fiber optic cable designed specifically for the drop portion of a network.

“FTTx cables can be used in various architectural approaches to outside plant designs,” said Doug Wells, vice president/Outside Plant Solutions, CommScope, in a statement. “Some operators are using expensive fiber optic drop cables, containing up to 12 fibers that were designed to accommodate various applications that extend way beyond the true drop application. The Low Count Fiber Drop is a design uniquely focused on addressing the specific requirements in the tap to subscriber connection."

The Low Count Fiber Drop cable is a small (4 mm × 2 mm) lightweight (8 lbs per 1,000 ft) cable designed for easy handling and field preparations. The all-dielectric Low Count Fiber Drop cable also eliminates the time associated with bonding and grounding.
