Ruggedized Fiber Jumpers

These fiber jumpers are ideal when splicing FTTH drops in the ONT/NID.  Indoor cordage stiffens and retains cable memory in cold weather.  These jumpers remain flexible even in extreme conditions.  These assemblies use bend-insensitive fiber to help eliminate bend-radius issues inside the NID.  These patch cords also work well in outside plant cross-connect cabinets.
