There are cables designed for every environment. One might argue that there are too many options and that deciding between designs is not simple. Choosing a cable not only requires fiber type and count but also confirming that the cable will last for the expected lifetime of the application.

Cables need to resist mechanical and environmental stresses both during the installation and where the cable is finally placed. Since installation is a significant portion of the overall cost of a cabling system, selecting the right cable will mitigate expensive replacement costs.

Industry Standards

From the beginning of a project, specifying the correct industry cable standard is critical to ensure the cable performance meets the demand of the application. Standards address the majority of use cases but in certain environments like mining or oil and gas applications, additional ...
