FieldShield D-ROP

Building upon the restoration promise of FieldShield Pushable Fiber, FieldShield D-ROP is a pre-connectorized drop cable delivered to market pre-placed in microduct. The microduct plugs directly into the FieldShield FlexPort, providing an air-tight, water-tight connection between the YOURx-TAP and the YOURx-Terminal.

Installed as a single-pass deployment, FieldShield D-ROP provides ease of restoration. In the event of a future fiber cut, a field technician easily identifies the cut area, and utilizes a simple coupler and a FieldShield Fiber Assembly to restore service.

Product Details

D-ROP cable presents the same footprint as a flat drop cable with the added advantage of being restorable. As with all FieldShield ducted solutions, fiber cuts are located and microduct is repaired with repair kit. A new pushable assembly is installed, minimizing costs and time to restore the service outage. It provides a completely protected pathway from the access point directly to the premise, business or antenna with the option for restoration after accidental fiber cut.

D-ROP does not have the slack storage challenges that a flat drop presents because the duct slack can be ring cut and removed leaving only the fiber assembly.

Connector options for this product include FieldShield SC and LC Pushable Connectors.
