The name microcables covers the range of optical cables in which, for the following reasons, the dimensions of the cables have been reduced to the maximum and always maintaining the levels of mechanical reliability required to guarantee optimum transmission capacity:

  • Cost of cables: The reduction in the size of the cables automatically implies a reduction in the quantity of materials used in the manufacture and consequently a reduction in the cost of the cables.

  • Installation cost: The possibility of installation using microducts and even micro trenches significantly reduces the costs of civil works as well as the time and inconvenience associated with it.

  • Scalability of the network: Future installation of new cables by blowing without the need for civil works using previously existing microducts.

 Standard Cableteam Spain offers cables of up to 288 optical fibres with a diameter of 1 cm for installation by blowing into microducts.
