Abstract : A breakout cable construction has been designed consisting of individually strengthened and jacketed optical channels which facilitate use of single channel optical connectors. This cable design eliminates the need for a patch panel, breakout box or cable furcation (which are required for standard cable designs) at the cable to electronics interface. The cable design parameters are reviewed along with a detailed cost comparison between use of standard multi-fiber cable and the new breakout cable in short-haul optical links. (Author)
