The blown microfiber cable evolution has grown in the U.S. broadband market. Like the name implies, a blown microfiber cable is a miniaturized version of a stranded loose tube cable placed in a microduct using high pressure air to assist with its installation.
Not only is the size of the microcable reduced to make the cable as light as possible for the air-blown application, but it uses a unique jacket design that is a significant departure from traditional optical fiber cables. Specifically, the jacket on microcable is more like a skin rather than the thick protective sheath found on traditional cables. That level of protection for the microcable is not necessary, as it gains its protection in the microduct.
into a microfiber cable is still a craft sensitive job. It is much simpler and
easier than with traditional cables; however, there are some who are not
performing it properly. On some recent visits, I demonstrated the
proper way to perform this task.
I receive so many queries on how to properly enter the microfiber for a
mid-sheath entry, I created this short how-to video for you. I welcome your feedback
and questions in the comment section below.
else have you tried to perform a mid-sheath entry?
