Part Number: 288KAE-T4A30A20

Corning SOLO® ADSS optical cables are all-dielectric, self-supporting (ADSS) cables designed for easy and economical one-step installation in campus backbones with self-supporting installations where metallic messengers cannot be used. The loose tube design provides stable performance over a wide temperature range and is compatible with any telecommunications-grade optical fiber. The cable design can span distances in excess of 500 m (1650 ft) in NESC heavy conditions.

This cable incorporates innovative waterblocking materials, eliminating the need for traditional flooding compound and providing efficient and craft-friendly cable preparation. While the concentric, self-supporting cable design allows easy, one-step installation using standard hardware and installation methods, the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates optical fibers from installation and environmental rigors and facilitates mid-span access. The ADSS optical cables are also available with a proprietary track-resistant polyethylene (TRPE) jacket suitable for installation in electric field potentials up to 25 kV.
