Indoor/Outdoor Riser Standard Ribbon Cables

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Indoor/Outdoor Riser Standard Ribbon Cables feature 250 µm color-coded optical fibers for easy fiber identification and Sumitomo’s exclusive patented easy split and peel technology for easy fiber access and unprecedented ease of handling and splicing. The twelve fiber ribbons enable connectorization with both MPO and all industry standard connectors. The non-preferential bend axis allows for easy installation in space constrained areas. The cables include a dielectric strength member with a flexible, flame-retardant outer jacket in its all dielectric cable construction that eliminates grounding or bonding. Sumitomo’s Indoor-Outdoor Riser Rated Ribbon Cables also eliminate the need for installers to switch from an outside plant to a premise cable when transitioning from the outside plant to inside plant. The cables meet OFNR and CSA FT4 specifications and are available in all fiber types.
