Siemon has added multiple armored cable options to its comprehensive line of high-performance MTP-based plug-and-play fiber cable assemblies. Available in 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s-capable OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber cable constructions, as well as standard 62.5/125 and 50/125 multimode and single mode, these plug-and-play assemblies feature flexible, spiral-wrapped aluminum interlocking armor offering over seven times the crush resistance of standard assemblies.mc0712-products-siemon-300.jpg

This added durability supports rugged-environment intrabuilding backbone and horizontal installations and eliminates the need for ducting to protect non-armored fiber cable. Compared to the installation of non-armored fiber with separate inner duct or conduit, the use of armored cable can cut installation costs by up to 50 percent or more for both materials and labor. Available in 12 to 144 fiber counts in increments of 12 fibers and in custom lengths, Siemon’s armored plug-and-play fiber cable assemblies are user-configurable to precise application requirements.
