Ftth drop cable Solutions Jun 27, 2017

FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) has replaced the existing copper cables in appliances such as telephone wires by bringing about a unique system of delivering optical fiber to the homes and offices directly from the switching equipment of the operator. Their network is spread between both outdoor and indoor sections of the house, and hence, they require various different types of fiber optic cables. A drop cable forms a vital part in this network of FTTH cables, which helps complete the network from the subscriber’s end by connecting the subscriber’s premises with the distribution cable’s terminal. FTTH drop cabling solutions will be provided in this tutorial.

FTTH Drop Cabling Overview

Drop cabling forms the final external link to the subscriber and runs from the last FCP to the subscriber building for a distance not exceeding 500m which is reduced considerably in high-density areas. Drop cables are used for subscriber connections, usually contain a number of fibers but may include additional fibers for backup or for other reasons. Drop cable normally the only link to the subscriber lacking network diversity.


For underground networks, the drop cabling may be deployed within small ducts, within micro-ducts or by direct burial to achieve a single dig and install solution. Overhead drop cables will feed from a nearby pole and terminate at a chosen point on the building for onward routing to the termination unit. In either case, the cable assembly may be pre-terminated or pre-connectorized for rapid deployment and connection, as well as to minimize disruption during installation.

FTTH Drop Cable Types

Drop cables come in three main types: direct install, direct buried and aerial. Since these cables are present in the outdoor, they have a smaller diameter and low fiber count. They can be installed underground, above ground or overhead.

Direct Install Cables

Direct install cables are installed into ducts, usually pulled, pushed or blown. The structure can be non-metallic with an external/internal sheath, or a double sheath: one internal low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) and one external PE. Cables are available from 1 to 36 fibers (typically 12 fibers). The fiber elements can be loose tubes, micro sheath, or blown fiber units.

FOCC FTTH Drop Cables Solution

Apart from knowing the above, one must also make sure to find out which is the right drop cable connectivity method (connector or splice) with the help of experts. The right kind of connectivity method along with the right kind of connector (field terminated connector or pre-terminated connector) or splice (fusion splicing or mechanical splicing) would matter a lot in the proper functioning of the FTTH network. Therefore choose a reliable cable supplier is very important. FOCC Provide FTTH cable solution as below , for more infomation plz contact us
