NanoCore® Interconnect Micro Distribution Plenum Cable

Drybit Cable

NanoCore® Interconnect Micro Distribution offers 250 micron fiber optic strands in a loose tube design allowing for a higher fiber strand count in a very small overall diameter cable. Each fiber strand is color coded for easy identification. The cable is flexible and easy to handle and uses lightweight aramid yarns to enhance strength. NanoCore® Interconnect Micro Distribution cable is ideal for MPO (MTP™) style connectors where higher data rates are desired. Supported applications include gigabit, 10 gigabit and 40 gigabit Ethernet. Made in USA. Proterial Cable America is proud to utilize Corning Optical Fiber as our standard optic fiber.
