HYBRIFLEX® Fiber optic Cable, Single-Mode Fiber

Rev : A | Rev date : 17 Jan 2022

RFS' HYBRIFLEX ™ Non metallic break-out cable which incorporates eight individually ruggedised singlemode optical fibers. Designed for use as part of a Radio over Fiber (RoF) solution, this cable is suitable for indoor applications. A fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) central core acts as an additional non metallic strength member in addition to the individual aramid yarns of the sub units allowing installation in complex routings where cable snagging is likely.



  • Incoprates singlemode optical fibers ensuring future proof connectivity for RoF (and other) high bandwidth, multi wavelength applications
  • Bend insensitive G657A2 optical fiber simplifies installation and ensures RoF system performance is achieved
  • The ruggedised sub units enable individual fibres to be "broken out" of the main cable and run to wall outlets without the need for a separate "break out" box
  • Fully non metallic construction permits installation within existing power and data cable ducts
  • Flame retardant, LSZH materials for use inside buildings
  • Ruggedised construction simplifies installation
