With a flame-retardant outer jacket, this cable is particularly useful for heavy traffic or more challenging mechanical exposure conditions and applications requiring extra rugged cables for routing inside buildings, through riser shafts, to telecommun ication rooms and to workstations.
This cable is available in 12 different jacket colors - blue, orange, green, brown, slate, white, red, black, yellow, purple, rose and aqua. The colored jacket allows for easy visual identification of the cables.
Corning Cable Systems MIC Unitized Interlocking Armored Plenum Cables are standard MIC Unitized Cables designed for use in plenum, riser and general purpose environments for intrabuilding backbone and horizontal installations. These multifiber cables use individually jacketed 900 µm TBII Buffered Fibers enabling easy, consistent stripping and facilitating termination. The fibers are grouped into six or 12-fiber jacketed subunits, for quick and easy identification. These subunits surround a dielectric central member and are protected by a flexible, spirally wrapped, aluminum interlocking armor that offers easy, one-step installation and over seven times the crush protection of unarmored cables.


General Purpose Horizontal, Vertical Riser, Plenum


  • Flexible, Interlocking Armor Design Seven Times Crush Protection Compared to Unarmored Cables
  • TBII Buffered Fibers Easy, Consistent Stripping
  • Quick and Easy Identification
  • Flame-Retardant Jacket Rugged and Durable
