Applications

These jumpers are ideal when splicing FTTH drops in the ONT/NID. Indoor cordage stiffens and retains cable memory in cold weather. These jumpers remain flexible even in extreme conditions. These assemblies also use bend-insensitive fiber to help eliminate bend radius issues inside the NID. These patch cords also work well in OSP cross-connect cabinets.
