What performance standard does Superior Essex use to qualify fiber optic cables?

February 4, 2020

Outside Plant (OSP) optical fiber cables are tested to meet or exceed the requirements contained in Telcordia (formerly Bellcore) GR-20-CORE, Generic Requirements for Optical Fiber and Optical Fiber Cable. Our OSP cables are also tested in accordance with the Rural Development Utilities Program (RDUP), formerly RUS standard for fiber optic cables. For fiber optic cables intended for premises applications Telcordia GR-409-CORE, Generic Requirements for Premises Fiber Optic Cable and ICEA S-83-596, Standard for Optical Fiber Premises Distribution Cable are used as the qualification standards.
