TSD-2000-2-1 OPTICAL FIBRE CABLING: COMPONENTS: CABLE SELECTION GUIDE Issue 2
The Cable Selection Guide has been designed to assist with the selection of cable constructions typically used in today’s fibre optic industry. In all cases, a combination of the application and the environment in which the cable will be installed will call for differing cable construction requirements.
The guide is applications based and, in its first section, provides the full spectrum of applications coverage for copper, multimode fibre and singlemode fibre together with a table of optical performance. Whether indoor, outdoor, loose tube, tight buffered riser or duct, the Guide helps to provide the correct selection. Other sections cover Cable Materials, Cable Types, Applications, Installation Considerations, Standard Specifications, and a Glossary of Terms.
