Ribbon Fiber Cable Assemblies

Timbercon ribbon fiber cables offer a compact, efficient, and versatile solution to applications requiring maximum connectivity in a minimum amount of space. Based on single ferrule MT technology, these cable assemblies provide up to 72 fiber connections in a single point, reducing the physical space and labor requirement, while providing the same bandwidth capacity of a multi-fiber cable with individual fiber/connector terminations per fiber.

Timbercon ribbon fiber cables are used in many applications requiring multiple fibers from point to point and/or multiple fiber distribution from one point to several separate points.

The advantage of utilizing ribbon fiber cables resides in the ability to achieve a much higher density in patch panel, cable routing/ducting, and device connection environments, without compromising the quality or quantity of the connection.
