Multicom – MADSS-ASU – Aerial Self-Supported ASU Fiber Optic Cable, G.652D

  • Loose tube
  • Singlemode
  • 1-12, 24 Fiber count available
  • Proven all-dielectric loose tube construction
  • Immune to electromagnetic fields
  • Fast, one-step installation
  • Integrated FRP strength elements
  • Round cable profiles minimize wind and ice loading


Multicom’s G.652D Aerial Self-Supported ASU Fiber Optic Cable has a loose tube structure and water-resistant gel compound to provide crucial protection for the fiber. Over the tube, water-blocking material is applied to keep the cable watertight. Two parallel fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) elements are placed on the two sides. The cable is covered with a single PE outer sheath. It is especially suitable for installation in aerial for long-distance communication.


Additional Benefits:

  • Eliminates the need for expensive cable shielding and grounding
  • Uses simple attachment hardware (no preinstalled messenger)
  • Outstanding cable performance and stability


What is G.652 Single Mode Fiber?

G.652 single-mode fiber, also known as standard single fiber, is the most commonly deployed single-mode fiber. It has four variations: G.652A, B, C, and D – and two classifications. The first classification is G.652.A and G.652.B fibers, are designed to have a zero-dispersion wavelength near 1310nm and are optimized for operation in the 1310nm band. However, they are unsuitable for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) applications due to water peak.

What is ‘Water Peak‘, and why is it so important?

The more advanced classification of G.652.C and G.652.D fibers are optimized with a reduced water peak (RWP) for spectrum operation, which allows them to be utilized in the wavelength region between 1310nm and 1550nm to support Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexed (CWDM) transmission.
