Reel in a Box is Corning's innovative packaging solution for small reels of fiber optic cable in all inside plant applications, such as collocation data centers and wireless projects. This packaging solution provides features that enable our customers greater efficiencies than before.
Corning MIC® plenum cables are designed for use in plenum, riser and general purpose environments for intrabuilding backbone and horizontal installations. These multifiber cables use 900 μm buffered fibers to allow easy, consistent stripping and to facilitate termination. The fibers are surrounded by dielectric strength members and protected by a flame-retardant outer jacket.
The all-dielectric cable construction requires no grounding or bonding. MIC plenum cables are ideal for routing inside buildings, within plenum areas and riser shafts, to the telecommunications rooms and workstations. The MIC plenum cables meet the application requirements of the National Electrical Code® (NEC®) Article 770 and are OFNP and FT-6 listed.
