Optical Fiber
General Cable, Corning® Optical Fiber.
Names that are synonymous with cable
and fiber combine to create the ultimate
in fiber optics. General Cable partners
with Corning Optical Fiber to deliver the
world’s most reliable and technologically
advanced optical fiber cables.
Singlemode
Multimode
These fibers have superior measurement technology and
manufacturing control, and industry-leading CPC® coatings
for superior microbend and environmental performance.
ClearCurve fiber performance is ensured by minEMBc, the
industry’s leading standards-approved bandwidth measurement
for OM3 fibers. ClearCurve fibers are the only ones to use this
measurement to ensure 10 Gb/s performance.
Standard
General Cable utilizes Corning® SMF-28e+™ fiber as its standard
singlemode offering. This is a full-spectrum fiber that is fully
backward-compatible with legacy singlemode fiber. It enables
increased optical launch power of legacy singlemode fiber,
improved macrobend specifications from 0.05 dB to 0.03 dB,
and tighter zero dispersion wavelength (l0) tolerance from a
range of ± 10 nm to ± 7 nm. This fiber supports all broadband
applications and complies with the most stringent industry
standards, such as:
• ITU-T G.652 (Tables A, B, C and D)
• IEC 60793-2-50 Type B1.3
• ISO 11801 052
• TIA/EIA 492-CAAB
• Telecordia GR-20-CORE
Long-Haul
For long-haul applications, rely on General Cable’s long history
of cable experience and the technology of Corning® LEAF® fiber.
This is the most widely deployed non-zero dispersion shifted
(NZ-DSF) fiber in the world and the first low water peak NZ-DSF
fiber. Its large effective area and industry-leading polarization
mode dispersion (PMD) specifications enable 10 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s
network systems of the future.
ClearCurve® ZBL
General Cable, utilizing Corning® ClearCurve® ZBL Optical
Fiber, delivers the best macrobending performance in the
industry while maintaining compatibility with current optical
fibers, equipment, practices and procedures. This full-spectrum
singlemode optical fiber, when subjected to smaller radii bends,
experiences virtually no signal loss. ClearCurve fiber exceeds
the most stringent bend performance requirements of ITU-T
Recommendations G.657.B3 while remaining fully compliant
with ITU-T Recommendation G.652.D and the installed base of
Corning SMF-28e® and SMF-28e+® fiber.
ClearCurve® Multimode Fiber
Corning® ClearCurve® ultra-bendable laser-optimized™
multimode optical fiber delivers the best macrobending
performance in the industry while maintaining compatibility with
current optical fibers, equipment, practices and procedures.
ClearCurve OM3/OM4 multimode fiber is designed to withstand
tight bends and challenging cable routes with substantially less
signal loss than conventional multimode fiber.

Use the code in the “Fiber Type” column
to replace the XX notation in the catalog
number shown on the catalog page. This
identifies the fiber that will be provided
with the cable choice.
The fibers in all completed cables are
tested 100% at the factory for attenuation,
and each fiber must meet the minimum
requirements specified by the customer.

Fiber Optic Ordering Information
2
We strive to have a variety of cables in stock for immediate delivery to our customers. Should
the cable not be in stock, it will be manufactured to your specifications.
To choose a fiber optic cable, you need to know the following:
1) What type and grade of fiber is required?
The system designer will have identified the fiber that is required for the network. Find
the fiber type that is needed from the Fiber Specification and Selection Guide. Use the
two-digit NextGen® Fiber Type code to identify the fiber. This code becomes the first two
digits of the catalog part number, replacing the XX notation.
2) How many fibers are required?
The system designer will also have identified the number of fibers that will be in each
cable. Fibers are usually cabled in groups of 6 or 12.
3) What cable construction is needed?
The cable construction that is needed is based on a variety of factors. We have a full
range of products for premises, outside plant and indoor/outdoor to solve nearly every
application need. Using the catalog as a guide, identify the cable type and construction
that is needed.
With the cable construction decided, move down the table on the catalog page to find the
number of fibers required. The first column of that row is the catalog part number. Simply
replace the XX at the beginning of the catalog number shown with the Fiber Type code found
in step 1, and the part number is complete.

IndexPage
NextGen® Brand fiber optic
cables are optimized for any
premises application.
Applications: Premises cables
with 900 µm tight buffer
constructions are built to
withstand the continuous
handling and difficult routing
typical of building backbones.
These fiber optic cables
emphasize flexibility, handling
and proper fiber termination
characteristics. This provides
reliable and simple installations
every time. These cables are
used for intrabuilding vertical
(backbone) and horizontal runs.
22
Range of Products: Includes the
manufacture of riser, plenum and
low-smoke, zero-halogen (LSZH)
cables. This includes distribution
designs as well as breakout style
cables. Fiber counts range up to
144 fibers.
Features: Premises cables have
an industry-standard 900 µm
tight buffer for termination to
connectors. The tight buffer
diameter is tightly controlled
to provide reliable, first-time
connections. Breakout cables
utilize 2.4 mm breakout
dimensions for rugged
environments and compatibility
with connectors. All fibers are
color-coded and subgrouped (if
necessary) for easy identification
for handling.

NextGen® Brand Indoor/Outdoor Cables

IndexPage
The concept, production and
application of indoor/outdoor fiber
optic cables has been a big part of
the NextGen® Brand product line
for more than a decade. As a leader
in easy-to-use, field-friendly fiber
optic cables, the indoor/outdoor
product line has been especially
well-known to users who appreciate
the features it provides.
Applications: Whether primarily for
indoor or outdoor use, we have an
impressive choice of products that
have the ability to route from either
a plenum or riser building space
to an outdoor run. This eliminates
the costly and space-consuming
transition point at the building
entrance and improves the system
loss budget. These cables are
most efficient when used to directly
connect equipment rooms (on any
floor) in different buildings or to
connect a manhole location to an
equipment room.
Range of Products:
Indoor/outdoor fiber optic
cables include loose tube (dry or
gel-filled) and tight buffer (900 µm)
designs. These are available in a
variety of configurations and jacket
types to cover riser and plenum
requirements for indoor cable
and the ability to be run in duct,
direct buried or aerial/lashed in
the outside plant. The following
catalog pages provide information
on proper interbuilding and
intrabuilding applications.
Features: These products reduce
the system cost by eliminating
splice points, simplifying cable
handling and gaining flexibility with
the choice of building entrances.
All cables meet appropriate NEC
requirements and are listed with
ETL. Tight buffer designs allow
direct termination of fibers with
industry-standard connectors and
techniques. Loose tube designs

provide more fiber protection in
harsh outdoor environments and
are readily spliced to existing
outside plant cables. Most indoor/
outdoor fiber optic cables utilize
Dry Water Block technology in
the cable core to protect the
fibers and provide fast, clean fiber
preparation.

IndexPage
Tight Buffer 3.0 mm Simplex/Duplex
Riser and Plenum Cable
40
Interconnect cables are used
in a variety of Fiber-To-TheDesk (FTTD) and network
connection schemes. These
cables are constructed to easily
terminate with industry-standard
connectors such as the SC and
ST. To serve the new market
evolution into high-density
cabling and terminations, we
offer an extended cable product
line that is compatible with all
of the new connection systems,
such as MT-RJ, MTP, LC and
other Small Form Factor (SFF)
components.
Range of Products: Low fiber
count (≤2) cables with riser
(OFNR) or plenum (OFNP)
listings comprise this family
of cables.
Tight Buffer 1.6 mm Simplex/Duplex
Riser Cable
41
Features: The interconnect
cables are constructed to
have the proper geometry to
mate with industry-standard
terminations. Generally, no
breakout or splitter kits are
required. The cables are very
small and flexible so that they
may be incorporated into highdensity cable management
systems.
Applications: Interconnect
cables are generally one- or
two-fiber cable constructions
for use in horizontal runs (FiberTo-The-Desk), as patchcords
in communication closets and
for OEM assemblies. These
cables are constructed to easily
terminate with industry-standard
connectors such as the SC
and the ST, as well as the new
generation of Small Form Factor
(SFF) connector designs.

Blolite® Blown Fiber Technology­–
Revolutionizing Fiber Networks

Blown Fiber Technology
Blolite® Blown Fiber technology provides unparalleled flexibility in network design—anticipating
and facilitating future changes as the network evolves. The Blolite® System delivers the ultimate
fiber solution for backbone and Fiber-To-The-X (FTTX) applications. The best long-term choice
for your business, our Blown Fiber technology will continue to provide significant and measurable
time, cost and service benefits to the network throughout its life cycle.
How Does It Work?
Small, flexible, empty Microduct tubes are initially installed, and compressed air is then used to
blow the optical fiber through the Microducts. As a result of our material and design technology, our blown fiber system
offers the opportunity to install fiber through difficult runs and further distances where installation of traditional optical
fiber would be challenging and expensive. This enhanced feature sets our system apart from others available in today’s
market. Microduct eliminates potential damage to fibers during installation since empty Microducts are installed
initially, and fiber is blown in later.
Because the Blolite® System is based upon simultaneously blowing individual fibers into each Microduct, designers
have maximum flexibility regarding the number and type of fibers per Microduct. Color-coded fibers are typically
supplied on master spools and cut to length during the blowing process. If necessary, routes can even be reconfigured
on the fly during the installation process.

The Blolite® Blown Fiber System Advantage
“Pay as you grow” Deferred Investment
Future-proof your network by installing only the fiber you need today, reserving Microduct capacity for tomorrow’s
requirements. Design tactically to meet present needs, but build strategically for the long term. Pay as you grow.
Extraordinary Design Flexibility
The Blolite Blown Fiber System can adapt to any network architecture or topology changes over the life of your
network. Quickly and economically add new destinations, relocate routes, change fiber types and counts, reconfigure
LANs and add new services and technologies, as required. New sections of Microduct can be spliced to existing
Microduct with a simple push-fit connector.
Adaptable to Any Environment
Our Blolite technology is compatible with any network topology and nearly every local area network installation
environment. Moves, Adds and Changes (MACs) can be accomplished with minimal workplace disruption as your
network evolves and changes.
Installation Ease
Microduct tubing and simple push-fit connectors make building a network infrastructure simple. Blolite eliminates
potential damage from pulling and overstressing fiber optic cables, as well as resulting costs, delays or latent failures.
Point-to-point links, easily achieved with Blolite for situations in which conventional fiber optic cable would require
splices, mean lower attenuation, higher performance and increased system integrity.
Capability for Quick Recovery
Disaster recovery from physical damage to the cabling infrastructure with the Blolite System means days versus weeks,
resulting in minimal downtime and labor costs. Only the damaged section of Microduct is removed and replaced, then
within minutes, new optical fiber is blown in, then terminated. Much faster and a far less costly disaster recovery is one
of the many obvious benefits of the Blolite Blown Fiber System.
Improved Reliability
Because Microduct is installed empty, there is no risk of fiber damage during installation. Optical fibers are blown into
place, rather than pulled, with zero tensile stress on the fiber during the installation process. Because point-to-point
links are easily accommodated, fiber splice points can be eliminated, lowering attenuation and increasing system
performance and integrity.
Installation Cost Savings
Only two people are needed to blow in the optical fiber. Fiber terminations are typically quicker than with conventional
cable, since no time needs to be devoted to cable preparation. Additionally, termination and testing is simplified with no
dark fiber to contend with.
