Fiber Optic Cable | Fiber Optic Cabling Technology | Corning

Spanning a broad range of end-to-end fiber optic cable solutions for communication networks, Corning Optical Communications forms the backbone that connects businesses, homes, and people around the globe.

The First Consideration with Fiber Optic Cable Is the Environment

Outdoor Cables

Outdoor Cables

Outdoor Cables

Cables for outdoor applications are engineered to withstand the more demanding conditions seen outside, from environmental extremes to mechanical forces. Outdoor cables therefore feature rugged constructions to resist ultra-violet light and temperature fluctuations, and may include features to withstand the requirements of outdoor installation.

Indoor/Outdoor Cables

Indoor/Outdoor Cables

Indoor/Outdoor Cables

These are cables that are designed to meet both the rigorous environment of the outdoors but also can be routed indoors, where flame rating requirements also apply. This type of cable eliminates the need for a “transition splice” to an indoor-rated cable when routing an outdoor cable into the building.

These cables are used exclusively within buildings and must have a flame-retardant jacket to fit this purpose. They may be deployed in duct (conduit) or cable tray.

Product Spotlight

SST-Ribbon™/SST-UltraRibbon™

Ribbon Cables

Corning’s ribbon cabling solution facilitates fast installation and restoration with 12 fibers spliced simultaneously via mass fusion splicing

Designed to enable greater fiber density per cable and per duct, allowing for the highest fiber count of any cable.

SST-Ribbon™/SST-UltraRibbon™ installs up to 80% faster and is up to 60% less expensive than traditional cabling. Empowering cable restoration up to 6x faster than traditional cabling, it reduces the cost of unplanned downtime events by up to 80%.
