AFL announces industry leaders join forces to deliver robust air-blown fiber optic cabling systems

Two of the world’s most innovative companies, AFL and Dura‑Line, have brought air-jetted cabling solutions to the 21st century. The result is a high-performance, air-blown fiber optic cabling solution for the enterprise market. Known as eABF™, this reliable, easy-to-install optical fiber network communications infrastructure offers the highest fiber density solution available today giving the customer the greatest return-on-invest available for an air-blown fiber physical network.

The eABF system centers on some of the newest fiber optic technologies available for air-blown fiber installations: the eABF cables and connectivity from AFL and the enterprise FuturePath® system from Dura-Line.

The eABF cable component is the first of its kind for enterprise-based air-blown fiber applications. The cable is a stand-alone, Telcordia GR-409 compliant construction with riser (OFNR) and plenum (OFNP) flame rating. In addition, the cable features a broad operating temperature range and water-blocking making suitable for indoor/outdoor duct installations. The high-drag, low-friction jacketing system allows the cable to be jetted over long distances covering most enterprise campus applications. The cable is available in fiber counts from 6 through 48 fibers with all fiber types including SMF, OM2, OM3 and OM4 employing bend-insensitive fiber (BIF) technology.

The eABF cable is designed for use in Dura-Line’s Enterprise FuturePath® system. The eABF Micro-duct options include indoor/outdoor riser, plenum, armored, low-smoke zero halogen (LSZH) and OSP products. All FuturePath® micro-ducts incorporate Dura-Line’s exclusive low-contact ribbed inner surface and ultra-low friction Silicore® lining. Network designers can choose from two through 24-Micro-duct tube counts, and leverage an upgradeable physical pathway with the highest fiber density available in an enterprise air-blown fiber configuration. The rapid deployment and expansion capability exceeds 1,150-fibers in a single duct.
