Optical fibre cables for aerial application
|Publication Date:||1 August 2015|
- refers to single-mode optical fibre cables to be used in telecommunication networks for aerial installations in outside plants, excluding optical ground wire (OPGW) and metal armour selfsupporting (MASS) cables;
- considers the mechanical and environmental characteristics of the aerial optical fibre cable (self-supporting cable and non self-supporting cable).
The optical fibre dimensional and transmission characteristics, together with their test methods, should comply with one or more of: [ITU-T G.651.1], [ITU-T G.652], [ITU-T G.653], [ITU-T G.654],
[ITU-T G.655], [ITU-T G.656] or [ITU-T G.657];
- considers fundamental aspects related to optical fibre cable from mechanical and environmental points of view.
