Corning’s MiniXtend® cable solves the demand for today’s unlimited bandwidth capacity and addresses escalating network duct congestion.
Designed for installation in microduct systems using air-assisted installation methods, MiniXtend cables are up to 50 percent smaller than standard loose tube cables and offer high fiber counts in a small cable diameter footprint.
Our innovative optical micro cabling solutions include MiniXtend and MiniXtend HD cables, both with binderless* FastAccess® technology.
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 Corning® SMF-28® Ultra 200 fiber and delivers fiber counts up to 432. MiniXtend HD cable is up to 20 percent 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 percent faster cable access, and reduces the risk of buffer tube damage.
