Optical fiber is known for its exceptional speed and bandwidth capability and for its ability to provide reliable communication signals in systems that generate large amounts of electromagnetic radiation. Fiber optic cables can be employed in a variety of applications including the transmission of voice and data in cable television, computer and telephone systems. Fiber optic cables include optical waveguides such as optical fibers that transmit optical signals, for example, voice, video, and/or data information. Fiber optic cables provide numerous advantages over traditional communication cables, particularly higher transmission speeds and improved transmission quality. A fiber optic cable is typically formed from a plurality of optical fibers concentrically surrounded by a series of protective layers. The optical fiber is surrounded by a layer of strengthening fibers to provide strength to the fiber optic cable for pulling the fiber optic cable through a conduit. An outer layer of a polymeric material, such as PVC, surrounds the layer of strengthening fibers. Fiber optic cables can generally be classified into two categories, namely, trunk and distribution cables that are designed to span relatively long distances, and drop cables that span much shorter distances and that typically terminate at a home or business. Trunk and distribution cables are generally relatively large and rigid and typically include a relatively thick jacket and large core components protecting the optical fibers. Fiber optic drop cables are typically relatively flexible. Fiber optic drop cables can be suitable for both aerial and buried cable applications.
