AFL and Dura-Line launch eABF air-blown fiber cabling solution
By Alyssa Dalton
March 15, 2013 – AFL and Dura-Line have joined together to develop an air-blown fiber optic cabling system—eABF (Enterprise Air-Blown Fiber)—which has several key elements that, when combined, yield a state-of-the-art and highly flexible future-proof communications pathway, they say. The system boasts a low-friction high-drag jacketing system that enables the cable to move along the duct at a faster rate of speed. According to the companies, by eliminating the initial high cost typically associated with traditional air-blown fiber systems, network designers will realize that the eABF solution can be their primary network pathway infrastructure. Ideal for data centres, private networks, high-rise buildings, urban and medical campuses, the eABF solution is NEC 770 compliant for both raceways and ducts, and comes complete with AFL connectivity, closures, enclosures, patch cords and connectors, fusion splicers and test equipment.
