Rollable Ribbon Technology
High Density Fiber Optic Cable For Performance You Can Count On
Imagine a technology leap that doubles a cable’s fiber optic density while reducing the size of that same cable. OFS Rollable Ribbon high density Fiber Optic Cables are delivering that advance today. OFS Rollable Ribbon Cables are smaller and lighter in weight than standard flat ribbon cables. At the same time, these cables allow installers to double the density of vital pathways versus standard cable designs. This makes Rollable Ribbon fiber cables an ideal choice for indoor and outdoor use, connecting data centers, or serving as the distribution for dense FTTx and mobility networks.
We create these Rollable Ribbons by partially bonding single 250 µm fibers to each other to form a bendable high density fiber cable. This design allows for a highly efficient ribbon splicing and easy single or multiple fiber breakout. These completely gel-free cable designs also help to reduce the time required for splicing preparation.
Above all, doubling the density of your fiber means doubling your transmission capacity, doubling your capability, and doubling your ability to get the job done.
Rollable Ribbon Advantages
- Familiar loose tube design.
- No preferential bending for easier coiling, handling and slack management.
- Customers enjoy less concern for jacket damage after pulling unlike with slotted core designed cables.
- Increased fiber protection (over wrapping tube cable designs).
- Cables are all-dielectric, no bonding or grounding is needed.
Cable Prep for Splicing
- Easily identifiable color coded ribbons.
- Loose tube design provides easy mid-span access compared to slotted core or wrapping tube cable designs.
- Loose tubes protect fibers during preparation.
- Easy breakout for individual fibers or groups of fibers.
Splicing and Testing
- Smaller distance between fiber bond locations provides flatter, more controllable ribbons during splicing.
- Fiber bonded by adhesive in precise locations.
- Ruggedized fiber protection
- Proudly made to the highest of standards in the United States of America.
Rollable Ribbon Products
AccuRoll™ Dry Core (DC) Rollable Ribbon Cable
The first and only central core rollable ribbon cable design with linear strength elements and a central core tube as a protective layer around the ribbons.
Why the AccuRoll DC Rollable Ribbon Cable
The AccuRoll Dry Core (DC) Rollable Ribbon (RR) Cable features rollable ribbon technology, the newest optical fiber ribbon design from OFS. To form these ribbons, 250 μm fibers are partially bonded to each other at intermittent points. This design not only enables mass fusion ribbon splicing but individual fiber breakout is also easier than with flat ribbons. These ribbons can be rolled and routed similarly to individual fibers to facilitate use in smaller closures and splice trays.
The completely gel-free design also helps to reduce the time required for preparation for splicing.
RollR™ Central Core Rollable Ribbon Cable
The RollR CC Rollable Ribbon (RR) Microcable features 288 or 432 optical fibers in a gelfree, central core cable cable design optimized for micro-duct installations.
Why the RollR™ Central Core Rollable Ribbon Cable?
Every element of the RollR Central Core RR Cable’s was designed to offer high fiber density while helping to speed of deployment. The rollable ribbon design helps users to achieve highly efficient and cost-effective mass fusion splicing along with easy individual fiber breakout. This capability helps to simplify installation and save on labor costs. In addition, the RollR Central Core RR Cable’s greater fiber density can help to expand the capacity of existing pathways using smaller, lower-cost duct systems.
The RollR Central Core RR Cable’s ribbons may be ‘rolled’ (compacted) and routed like individual fibers to facilitate use in smaller closures and splice trays.
AccuFlex® Rollable Ribbon Cable
Specifically designed to offer benefits of both traditional flat fiber ribbons and loose fibers in one cable.
Why the AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable?
The AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable was designed to offer the highest fiber density possible for its size. The result is a compact and dense cable that requires less space. This cable allows installers to double the density of existing pathways.
The 12-fiber rollable ribbons permit efficient mass fusion splicing. Strong yet flexible, plenum-rated AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable also helps prevent installation issues. This includes packing density, routing and speed of deployment. This cable’s flame rating meets the demands of NFPA 262 for installation into air-handling spaces. In all, the AccuFlex Rollable Ribbon Cable offers an outstanding solution for data centers, central offices, and head ends.
AccuTube+® Rollable Ribbon Cable
Featuring 432 to 3456 optical fibers in a gel-free, loose tube cable design.
With up to 3456 fibers, the AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon Cable is an excellent choice for any high-bandwidth application. Its design enables easy, cost-effective mass fusion splicing. By simplifying installation, customers can save on the cost of labor. In addition, this cable’s greater fiber density expands the capacity of existing routes and allows the use of smaller, lower-cost duct systems.
Why AccuTube+ Rollable Ribbon Cable?
This cable allows streamlined ribbon splicing and easy single fiber breakout. Its gel-free water-blocking design also helps to reduce labor and splice costs. This makes it an ideal choice for connecting very large fiber distribution hubs. It is also fine choice for use in data centers, FTTx and access networks.
DuctSaver® Rollable Ribbon Cable
Featuring 144, 288, or 432 optical fibers in a gel-free, central core cable design. This cable features rollable ribbons, the newest optical fiber ribbon design from OFS. To form these ribbons, individual 250 μm fibers are partially bonded to each other at predetermined points. The cable design features a central tube construction with helical strength elements for durable protection and superior coiling performance to alternative products.
Why DuctSaver Rollable Ribbon Cable?
The design helps users to achieve highly efficient and cost-effective mass fusion splicing along with easy individual fiber breakout. This capability helps to simplify installation and save on labor costs. In addition, the DuctSaver RR Cable’s greater fiber density can help to expand the capacity of existing pathways using smaller, lower-cost duct systems.
AccuRiser™️ Rollable Ribbon Cable
Specifically designed to offer high fiber density and excellent carrying capacity. The rollable ribbons enable efficient mass fusion ribbon splicing and quick single fiber breakout. These cables can be compacted and routed like individual fibers for use in smaller closures and splice trays.
Why the AccuRiser™️ Rollable Ribbon Cable?
All elements of the AccuRiser Rollable Ribbon Cable offer high fiber density. This cable helps to speed installation in new data centers or central office deployments. The 12-fiber rollable ribbons allow splice-in-place operations. This will help to get a facility up and running quickly. The strong yet flexible cable also installs easily over ladder racking and through tight bends.
This cable is an excellent choice for building-to-building cable connections. It also removes the need for median splice points when transitioning from outdoors to the indoors. Reducing the number of splices improves system loss and lowers termination points within a network. It is also well suited preconnectorized applications.
