Multicom – MASSX – Aerial Steel Strand Support Fiber Optic Cable, G.652D

  • Full section water blocking ensures good water and moisture resistance
  • Loose sleeve filled with gel compound for critical fiber protection
  • 8-shaped self-supporting structure with high tensile strength, easy to install overhead, low cost
  • Longitudinal steel wire gives better cable resistance to tensile and lateral forces
  • Polyethylene sheath for UV resistance


Multicom’s G.652D Aerial Steel Strand Support Fiber Optic Cable is a self-supporting outdoor fiber optic cable with features of moisture resistance and crush resistance, suitable for aerial application. The metal supporting strength member is made up of galvanized steel strand wires and the jacket is made of with a medium-density polyethylene (MDPE) sheath to be figure 8 in design. The fibers are surrounded by the loose tube and water blocking system. The impact structure ensures excellent mechanical and environmental performance.

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 G.652A, B, C, and D four variants. The G.652A and G.652B are designed to have a zero-dispersion wavelength near 1310 nm, therefore they are optimized for operation in the 1310nm band. However, they are not suitable for applications in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) due to water peak. The more advanced variants G.652C and G.652D fibers are optimized with a reduced water peak for spectrum operation, which allows them to be utilized in the wavelength region between 1310 nm and 1550 nm to support Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexed (CWDM) transmission.
