Rollable Ribbon Technology


High Density Fiber Optic Cable For Performance You Can Count On

Imagine a technology leap that doubles a cable’s fiber optic density while reducing the size of that same cable. OFS high density Rollable Ribbon Fiber Optic Cables are delivering that advance today. OFS Rollable Ribbon Cables are smaller and lighter in weight than standard flat ribbon cables. At the same time, these cables allow installers to double the density of vital pathways versus standard cable designs. This makes Rollable Ribbon fiber cables an ideal choice for indoor and outdoor use, connecting data centers, or serving as distribution for dense FTTx and mobility networks.

We create these Rollable Ribbons by partially bonding single 250 µm fibers to each other to form a bendable high density fiber cable. This design allows for highly efficient ribbon splicing and easy single or multiple fiber breakout. These completely gel-free cable designs also helps to reduce the time required for splicing preparation.

Above all, doubling the density of your fiber means doubling your transmission capacity, doubling your capability, and doubling your ability to get the job done.

Rollable Ribbon Advantages


• Familiar loose tube design.

 

• No preferential bending for easier coiling, handling and slack management.

• Customers enjoy less concern for jacket damage after pulling unlike with slotted core designed cables.

 

• Increased fiber protection (over wrapping tube cable designs).

• Cables are all-dielectric, no bonding or grounding is needed.

• Smaller distance between fiber bond locations provides flatter, more controllable ribbons during splicing.

 

• Fiber bonded by adhesive in precise locations.

• Ruggedized fiber protection

 

• Proudly made to the highest of standards in the United States of America.

• Easily indentifiable color coded ribbons.

 

• Loose tube design provides easy mid-span access compared to slotted core or wrapping tube cable designs.

 

• Loose tubes protect fibers during preparation.

 

• Easy breakout for individual fibers or groups of fibers.

Rollable Ribbon Applications


Rollable Ribbon Products


AccuRiser™️ Rollable Ribbon Cable

Specifically designed to offer high fiber density and excellent carrying capacity. The rollable ribbons enable efficient mass fusion ribbon splicing and quick single fiber breakout. These cables can be compacted and routed like individual fibers for use in smaller closures and splice trays.

Why the AccuRiser™️ Rollable Ribbon Cable?

All elements of the AccuRiser Rollable Ribbon Cable offer high fiber density. This cable helps to speed installation in new data centers or central office deployments. The 12-fiber rollable ribbons allow splice-in-place operations. This will help to get a facility up and running quickly. The strong yet flexible cable also installs easily over ladder racking and through tight bends.

This cable is an excellent choice for building-to-building cable connections. It also removes the need for median splice points when transitioning from outdoors to the indoors. Reducing the number of splices improves system loss and lowers termination points within a network. It is also well suited preconnectorized applications.

AccuFlex® Rollable Ribbon Cable

Specifically designed to offer benefits of both traditional flat fiber ribbons and loose fibers in one cable.

Why the AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable?

The AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable was designed to offer the highest fiber density possible for its size. The result is a compact and dense cable that requires less space. This cable allows installers to double the density of existing pathways.

The 12-fiber rollable ribbons permit efficient mass fusion splicing. Strong yet flexible, plenum-rated AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable also helps prevent installation issues. This includes packing density, routing and speed of deployment. This cable’s flame rating meets the demands of NFPA 262 for installation into air-handling spaces. In all, the AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable offers an outstanding solution for data centers, central offices, and head ends.

AccuTube+® Rollable Ribbon Cable

Featuring 432 to 3456 optical fibers in a gel-free, loose tube cable design.

With up to 3456 fibers, the AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon Cable is an excellent choice for any high-bandwidth application. Its design enables easy, cost-effective mass fusion splicing. By simplifying installation, customers can save on the cost of labor. In addition, this cable’s greater fiber density expands the capacity of existing routes and allows the use of smaller, lower-cost duct systems.

Why AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon Cable?

This cable allows streamlined ribbon splicing and easy single fiber breakout. Its gel-free water-blocking design also helps to reduce labor and splice costs. This makes it an ideal choice for connecting very large fiber distribution hubs. It is also fine choice for use in data centers, FTTx and access networks.
