The US Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Telecommunications Program has accepted CommScope’s Flat Drop fiber cable designs, enabling service providers seeking funding from the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) to propose the use of the Flat Drop products in business plans and applications they submit for RUS grants and loans.

CommScope’s Flat Drop designs include an all-dielectric cable suitable for aerial self-supporting or burial applications and a toneable design which contains a wire used to locate the underground portion of the fiber run. Both cable types are small, lightweight constructions designed for ease of handling and installation, and are compatible with industry-standard hardware. Their dual ripcords also simplify access and installation. CommScope’s Flat Drop cable designs are suitable for all FTTH applications, including CommScope’s BrightPath® RF over Glass (RFoG) solution.

“Acceptance of our Flat Drop cable designs by the Rural Development Telecommunications Program greatly benefits our customers as they look to expand their networks into unserved areas,” said Carl Meyerhoefer, vice president of Marketing and Business Development for CommScope’s Broadband division. “CommScope is excited about adding these designs to our family of products currently accepted by the Rural Development Telecommunications Program. We continue to focus on expanding our product portfolio to serve this important market.”
