Single-Mode Cable Assemblies


Single-mode fiber optic cable assemblies are designed for use in telecommunications, CATV, data communications and wide area network applications.

Pigtails are single fiber cables preassembled with a connector at one end. They are typically used to terminate primary coated fiber to optical equipment. For special applications, pigtails are available factory-stripped and with a pre-installed protection tube for precise length adjustment to a single element splice tray.

Jumpers are single fiber cables preassembled with a connector at both ends. They are typically used to cross-connect patch panel to patch panel and to interconnect patch panels to optical equipment.

  • CommScope offers two ranges of cable assembly specifications according to IEC 61755-1:
    • Grade C as a standard quality for use in data centers and telecommunication networks
    • Grade B as a superior quality if lower insertion losses are required, for example to cover extra distance
  • All connectors are built with full ceramic ferrules and tuned for best compatibility and performance
  • CommScope`s standard single-mode fiber is according to ITU-T G.657.A1
  • For all single-mode connectors used on the pigtails and jumpers, corresponding adapters are available and can be ordered separately
