Abstract

This paper describes a new termination, feeder and aerial distribution cable for the feeder and distribution sections of access networks. These cables have great advantages in terms of cost and installation workability that will enable us to realize fiber-to-the-home (FTTH). First, we describe the cable requirements with regard to cost reduction and installation. Based on the requirements, we investigated and optimized the structural design of these cables. We manufactured these cables according to the results and confirmed that their transmission and mechanical characteristics are sufficiently stable for them to be used in access networks for FTTH.
