    Broadcast Fiber Optic Cable

    This distribution field broadcast cable can be used outdoors for temporary deployment directly on the ground in all terrains, including severe environments and has been tested to be used in broadcast data communications applications worldwide. The extremely strong, lightweight, rugged, survivable tight-buffered cables are designed for broadcast field use and commercial applications. This broadcast distribution cable is crush resistant and resilient with a thick layer of aramid strength members.
