Direct Burial Fiber Optic Cable

Direct burial fiber optic cable is an underground fiber optic cable specially designed for direct buried installation with steel tape or wire armor outside. Direct burial is the most convenient way to lay optical cables. It saves the cost of pipeline and overhead installation. The cable is usually made of a plastic sheath and surrounded by a protective armor. This armored fiber optic cable protects the fiber from damage caused by rodents and other animals. In addition, the direct burial cable is also designed to be moisture-resistant, which helps prevent water from seeping into it and damaging the fibers. Direct burial cable is primarily used in direct burial in the soil or underground conduits.
