Superior Essex Multi-Dwelling Unit Cables
Meet ICEA-730 Draft Specification
Atlanta, GA, July 8, 2011
Superior Essex today announced it is the first to offer Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) cables that meet the rigorous requirements of ICEA-730 draft specification for MDU cables, providing users with assurance of reliable installation and performance. ICEA-730 defines both the optical and mechanical performance requirements for MDU cable and their installation, including tight bends and the use of cable staples.
The two new offerings, available now, include a 3 mm simplex Compact MDU cable and a 5 mm simplex Rugged Indoor MDU cable. The 3 mm simplex Compact MDU cable is ideal for low-stress installations where space is a premium. The 5 mm simplex Rugged Indoor MDU cable is more robust and can handle installation tensions as high as 100 pounds. The cables
are available with a single G.657.A2 or G.657.B3 compliant bend-resistant single mode fiber.
