  • Fiber-count 12 and 24 fibers 
  • Over-jacketed for increased protection 
  • 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 

Single-stranded trunks provide the backbone connection between patch panels in the data center. Single stranded trunks offer a high degree of flexibility and scalability and APS offer these with a secondary jacket to give a higher degree of protection within cable path ways.
Single-stranded trunks provide a scalable solution for users who wish to deploy just 12 or 24 fibers in a single cable rather than high fiber-count multi-stranded cables. This bite-sized approach makes it easier to redeploy cables if necessary and it helps to spread the costs of periodical installations.
With this cable construction, you get the best of both worlds because the cable is robust and protected in the pathways yet compact and flexible inside racks and in front of equipment. APS recommends that trunk cables are configured with male connectors at each end and polarity type B. This simplifies the upgrade path to higher data rates such as 40G and 100G.
