Ribbon Cable

(1) A Cable that incorporates multiple fibers, jacketed side by side in a ribbonlike form (with parallel elements). (2) A cable in which many conductors (copper or fiber) are embedded in a plastic material in parallel, forming a flat, ribbon like structure.

Alternate definition: A Fiber Optic Cable in which the optical fibers are held in grooves and laminated within a flat semirigid strip of material, such as plastic, that positions, holds, and protects them. Note: Ribbon Cables may be stacked to produce fiber optic cables with large numbers of fibers. Buffers, strength members, fillers, and jacketing are usually added to produce the final cable.
