  • Fiber-count 48 to 144 fibers 
  • Fast installation in ‘zone applications’ 
  • Bend-insensitive/bend optimized fibers 
  • Plenum (OFNP / FT6), LSZH Riser OFNR (FT-4- ST1) 
  • OS2, OM3 and OM4 performance types 
  • Colored outer-jacket to denote performance 
  • Ultra-low loss connector performance 
  • Suitable for routing in trays, racks and under raised floors 
  • Colored jacket for easy identification 
  • Compact 3mm strands for easy routing within racks and panels 

The multi-stranded trunks provide an extremely fast and space-efficient solution for users who wish to deploy many fibers in a single cable rather than multiple single-stranded cables. Multi-stranded trunks are suitable for zone distribution applications such as EoR or MoR applications.
Multi-stranded cables offer a higher degree of protection within cable trays and basket but also maintain a high degree of cable flexibility within racks and panels due to the compact 3mm sub- strands.
