Is there an industry standard which stipulates the construction of composite fiber cables?

February 4, 2020

The 3rd edition of the BICSI CO-OSP Design Manual (page 4-22) states “Where the cable contains both single and multimode optical fibers, the singlemode fibers are typically contained within the first group of tubes”. The key word here is typically. Superior Essex will always place the singlemode fibers in the first tube (s) followed by the multimode fibers, unless the customer specifically asks us to do otherwise. Another way to tell is to look at the test results attached to each reel.
