Used by electric utilities on transmission lines with the voltage of 35 kV and higher for creating optical communication lines and protecting the power lines from lightning strikes.
Applied for aerial installation on distribution and power transmission lines for building long distance optical communication systems.
Used for distributed fiber optic sensing in different applications.
Used for indoor and outdoor applications where fire resistance is a must. Remain functional under direct flame for at least 180 minutes.
Applied in ducts, conduits and trays with no risk of rodent attacks. Can also be lashed.
Designed for high reliability in harsh environments with potential mechanical impact. Applied in all ground types, swamps, and harsh rivers.
Designed for air blowing in ducts and microducts for building reliable underground communication networks.
Designed for underwater application with increased crush and tensile loads.

Used for cost-effective one-step aerial installation mostly in rural areas where the spans between poles are not long .
Applied in substations for control purposes.
Used to create communication lines between the common distribution box and a location inside the building (including vertical runs), between entrances or corridors in office buildings.
Applied for aerial installation on transmission towers, lightning poles, between buildings and structures for communication networks in rural areas.

Join Mike Riddle on his encore performance on ADSS Engineering 101 on September 23 at 11:00 am (GMT -5:00)!
ADSS Engineering 101 will teach you these eight important design elements of all-dielectric self-supporting cable (ADSS):
Three of these topics are controversial. We will discuss both sides of these issues as evenly as possible so that you can make an informed decision about your cable. Then we will continue with learning about how the tubes and optical core should be made, and why this “how” is important to long-term performance. We will conclude with a primer on sag and tension data for ADSS and how to determine when a track-resistant jacket is necessary.
Hope to see you joined
