Corning 8 F cables can be employed outdoors for campus backbone.
The loose tube cable construction, by isolating the fibers from installations and environmental rigors, provides stable and highly reliable transmission parameters.
The cable construction, based on a central buffer tube, is very compact, light and flexible and ideal for connections requiring a moderate fiber count.
The cables can be installed in conduits, ducts and be buried directly in the ground.
