Corning Freedm One tight buffered single mode fiber optic cable

The Freedm One cable construction is a flame-retardant, UV resistant, Indoor/Outdoor cable made for outdoor aerial, duct and direct burial applications. The Indoor/Outdoor rating also eliminates transmission fiber enclosures when entering the building, goodbye National Electric Code requirement!

The tight-buffered construction makes for easier termination in lower count fiber cable counts and you don't have the hassle of having to install fan-out kits compared to loose tube fiber, so annoying.

Let's take a look at the 6 strand from our YouTube Channel



Now let's look at the 12 strand.



Now the 24 strand!



As you can tell, regardless of the fiber optic strand count the construction is the same. If you need more than 24 strands for an outdoor application you might have to use a loose-tube cable then install fan out kits, that sucks.
