Corning FREEDM One riser cables are flame-retardant, UV-resistant, indoor/outdoor cables designed for aerial and duct applications with no need for a transition splice when entering the building. The tight-buffered construction facilitates easier termi nation for low-fiber-count applications in the local area network (LAN) and eliminates the need for fan-out kits. The design features TIA-598 color-coded 900 Um buffered fibers for easy identification, consistent stripping and direct termination. The s mall diameter and bend radius of the cable allow for easy installation in space-constrained areas while the innovative waterblocking technology is ideal for outside plant (OSP) applications. The all-dielectric cable construction requires no grounding o r bonding, and the UV-resistant, flame-retardant jacket is rugged, durable and easy to strip.

Note: This cable is available in 12 different jacket colors - blue, orange, green, brown, slate, white, red, black, yellow, violet, rose and aqua. The colored jacket allows for easy visual identification of the cables while still providing all of the required environmental protection of an indoor/outdoor cable jacket. Black is the standard jacket color using the part numbers shown here. Contact Customer Ca re at 1-800-743-2675 to order other color options.
