Superior Essex Announces Completion
of BBD Product Family
Atlanta, GA, October 13, 2014
Superior Essex announces the industry’s first halogen-free CM/CMX rated versions of the BBDG and BBDN CAT 6 and 6A cables, which can be deployed directly from outdoor to indoor spaces without the need for additional cables, cuts or connections. These cables complete the Broadband Distribution (BBD) series and provide Superior Essex customers the broadest range of outside plant broadband products available in the industry.
The BBD series includes Category (CAT) 5e through 6A cables which are deployable in duct, underground conduit, lashed aerial, tower, open trench, low-risk direct burial, and direct burial spaces. BBD products are ideal for Outside Plant (OSP), Power over Ethernet (POE), wireless, security and telecom applications.
Superior Essex BBD series maintains several outstanding features that promote high levels of performance for multiple applications. All BBD cables include Polymer Fiber Matrix (PFM) gel-filled core technology to prevent moisture intrusion, backed by a best-in-class installation warranty and operational temperature range at -40° C (-40° F). Furthermore, each OSP design has successfully completed the coldest installation temperature tests in the industry, down to -55° C (-67° F). Aluminum Interlock-Armored versions are available for protection against mechanical stresses and easier installation in applications requiring EMT conduits.
“The breadth of the BBD series allows our customers to meet all of their OSP to Premises cabling needs with one manufacturer while also improving productivity during deployment” says Amir Sekhavat, Director of Product Management for Premises Copper Cables.
