Abstract : A zero loss termination system adapted to cylindrical grooved (or slotted core) cables is described that provides individual protection of each fibre at a breakout point without the need to cut or splice the fibres. Applications of this device are described, for example, the design of termination subassemblies (cable termination boxes, distribution frames, drop terminals) in the French wired city of BIARRITZ, cable splicing organization including high density cables and various subassemblies for videocommunication networks.
