FieldShield D-ROP cable presents the same footprint as a flat drop cable with the added advantage of being restorable. Just like traditional FieldShield Microduct and fiber, fiber cuts are located, repaired and a new fiber assembly is pulled from point A to B with a pre-terminated SC assembly. In the event that an SC is not used, blunt fiber is pulled and terminated with a fuse-on connector minimizing costs and time to restore the service outage. Plugged directly into the FieldShield YOURx-Terminal or YOURx-TAP, FieldShield D-ROP provides a complete protection 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 peeled or removed leaving only the fiber assembly.
