How ADSS Cable “Lost the Gel”

Over the past decade, the fiber optic industry developed and quickly accepted the use of completely gel-free (“dry”) loose tube cables for general use. Referred to as “dry-dry,” these cables use superabsorbent powders to prevent water ingress into a cable instead of traditional oil-based filling and flooding compounds. Now completely gel-free technology has arrived in the ADSS cable arena.

On March 18, Dr. Tim Goddard of OFS will present an IWCS-sponsored webinar on the development and commercial deployment of a totally dry ADSS loose tube cable family. This presentation will cover the key design factors considered in development and the comprehensive test program performed to ensure the suitability of these cables for use in the field.
