The structure of the FTTH fiber optic Drop Cable is to place a single-mode or multi-mode optical fiber between two non-metallic strength members and then extrude a layer of flame-retardant polyethylene sheath (LSZH). The metal suspension wire plays a supporting role on one side of the optical cable.
FTTH (Fiber to the home) drop cable, the outer skin is generally black and white, the diameter is relatively small, and the flexibility is good; the cross section is 8-shaped, the reinforcing member is located at the center of the two circles, and the metal or non-metal structure can be used, and the optical fiber is located at the geometric center of the 8-shaped shape. The fiber inside the cable is mostly G.657A2 small bending radius fiber, which can be laid at a bending radius of 20mm.
The Fiber Cores of FTTH drop cable is from 2 cores to 6 cores
FTTH drop cable is use special low-bend-sensitivity fiber provides high bandwidth and excellent communication transmission property.Two parallel FRP strength members ensure good performance of crush resistance to protect the fiber.Simple structure, light weight and high practicability.Novel flute design, easily strip and splice, simplify the installation and maintenance.Low smoke, zero halogen and flame retardant sheath.
FTTH outdoor drop cable is a new type of fiber-optic cable. It is a butterfly-shaped cable. Because it is small in size and light in weight, it is suitable for the application of Fiber to the Home. It can be cut according to the distance of the site, increased the efficiency of construction. The unique 8-shaped structure of the drop cable can realize the field end in the shortest time.

This cable can work with single mode or multimode LC/SC fast connectors and also can be pre-terminated by LC/SC/ST/FC connectors.
Yes, the optical fiber usually is single mode (9/125) G657. It is also can be G652D. You can use cold splicing tool to add fast connectors LC/SC/ST/FC(UPC/APC) to it.
Yes, UnitekFiber can provide LC fast connectors to terminate FTTH drop cable.
The main application for FTTH drop cable is Fiber to The Home project.
Yes, it is suitable for outdoor application with 70meters pole span.
The strength member for FTTH drop cable can be FRP or steel wire.
FRP is a Fiberglass-Reinforced Plastic material that has the strength of steel at the fraction of the weight, the FRP makes cable strong tension and anti-bend advantages.
Pulling this through ceilings and in conduit - this is fantastic cable. Flexible doesn't hold shape. very nice to crimp as well.
