MiniXtend® Cables

Corning’s MiniXtend® cable solves the demand for today’s unlimited bandwidth capacity and addresses escalating network duct congestion. Microduct technology is invaluable both for indoor and outdoor applications, enabling scalability without disruption to the surrounding environment.

Designed for installation in microduct systems using air-assisted installation methods, MiniXtend micro cables are up to 50% smaller than standard loose tube cables and offer high fiber counts in a small cable diameter footprint.

Microduct technology is invaluable both for indoor and outdoor applications. Our innovative optical micro cabling solutions include MiniXtend and MiniXtend HD cables, both with binderless FastAccess® technology. For indoor applications, we’ve developed the MiniXtend Plenum MicroCable, which is specially designed for indoor and indoor-outdoor MicroDucts. MiniXtend's value also extends to the data center, with MiniXtend Ribbon Cable – 200 Flow enabling substantial reductions in outside diameter and cable prep time for data center operators.

MiniXtend Cable is available in fiber counts from 12 to 144 and features Corning® SMF-28® Ultra fiber. MiniXtend HD Cable – our highest density micro cable – features SMF-28 Ultra 200 fiber and delivers fiber counts up to 432.  MiniXtend HD micro cable is up to 20% smaller than standard micro cables.

Our time-saving binderless FastAccess® technology eliminates the use of binder and waterblocking yarns and waterblocking tapes, enables up to 70% faster cable access, and reduces the risk of buffer tube damage. 

When it comes to the optimized MiniXtend and closure pairing solution, the BPEO closure is ideal. Designed to be flexible for you when accessing cable in the field and available in a range of sizes, they can be deployed above grade (pole, façade) or below grade (manhole, handhole).
