Armoured WTCTM with SWRTM
288-1728F armoured full dry optical ribbon cable

Armoured Wrapping Tube CableTM (WTC) consists of Fujikura's novel Spider Web RibbonsTM (SWR) which are wrapped by a water blocking tape and non-metallic side strength members embedded in the corrugated steel tape armoured sheath. Compared to normal loose tube cable, this full dry structure ribbon cable drastically reduces the cable deployment time by eliminating the process to wipe out jelly and by mass fusion splicing just like conventional ribbon cable. WTC achieves the world's highest density optical fiber ribbon cable and allows effective utilization of existing conduits. Suitable for lashed aerial, duct and direct buried installation applications.
