Fibre optic cables are frequently installed in non-watertight piping and cable ducts, but the fibres need to be protected from humidity and wet in order to ensure the operational reliability of cables.

The new White Paper on our website describes the impact of water on cables and fibres, gives an overview of current standards and test methods, and pinpoints the aspects to be borne in mind when selecting suitable fibre optic cables.
