Corning Cable Systems ALTOS® Lite™ Gel-Free, Single-Jacket, Single-Armored Cables are designed for campus backbones in direct-buried installations. The loose tube design provides stable and highly reliable transmission parameters for a variety of voice, data, video and imaging applications. These cables also provide high-fiber density within a given cable diameter while allowing flexibility to suit many system configurations. The single-armored construction provides additional crush and rodent protection with a high-strength ripcord under the armor for easy stripping. Gel-free means the cables are fully waterblocked using craft-friendly, water-swellable materials which make cable access simple and require no clean up. The flexible craft-friendly buffer tubes are easy to route in closures, and the SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors while allowing easy midspan access. These cables have a medium-density polyethylene jacket that is rugged, durable and easy to strip. A variety of fiber types are available including 62.5 μm, 50 μm, single-mode and hybrid versions as well as fibers with Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance. These cables are also available with optional extended operating temperature to -50°C (-58°F) in a variety of fiber counts.
