Title Optical fibre cables - Part 3-10: Outdoor cables - Family specification for duct, directly buried and lashed aerial optical telecommunication cables
Project Number 21664
Abstract/Scope IEC 60794-3-10:2009(E) covers optical telecommunication cables to be used in ducts or direct buried applications. The cable may also be used for lashed aerial applications. Requirements of the sectional specification IEC 60794-3 for duct, buried and aerial cables are applicable to cables covered by this standard. The main changes from the previous edition are: - the title of the specification has been updated to include lashed applications; - the fibres specification clause (Clause 4) has been enlarged to include fibre Types B5 and B6.a; - an annex has been added for additional requirements according to the MICE table.
