Corning MIC interlocking armored plenum cables are designed for use in plenum, riser and general purpose environments for intrabuilding backbone and horizontal installations. These multifiber cables use individually jacketed 900 um buffered fibers enab ling easy, consistent stripping and facilitating termination. The fibers are grouped into jacketed subunits and surrounded by a dielectric central member.

The core is protected by a flexible, spirally wrapped, aluminum interlocking armor that offers easy, one-step installation and up to seven times the crush protection of unarmored cables. With a flame-retardant outer jacket, this cable is particularly useful for heavy traffic or more challenging mechanical exposure conditions and applications requ iring extra rugged cables.


General Purpose Horizontal, Vertical Riser, Plenum


  • Flexible, interlocking armor design
  • Seven times crush protection compared to non-armored cables TBII buffered fibers
  • Easy, consistent stripping Flame-retardant jacket
  • Rugged and durable
