A. DESIGN REQUIREMENTS:

City of Anaheim California Page 3 of 20 Specification E- 110, April 5, 2007


1. The cable shall be designed for a minimum life expectancy of 30 years.

2. The cable shall contain 96 single-mode optical fibers. The fiber strands
shall be bundled together in groups of 12 inside each buffer tube, and
color-coded in accordance with EIA 359A. The fiber coating shall be
easily removed with commercially available mechanical strippers. The
buffer tubes shall be sleeved over the fibers in loose-tube construction, and
shall be filled with waterproofing compounds.

3. The cable shall have a circular cross section so that installation is done
with standard sheaves and tensioning equipment.

4. The cable shall be of all-dielectric and self-supporting construction and


designed for unsupported spans of up to 500 feet with loading conditions
as defined by NESC for Anaheim, California (NESC Light Loading). The
cable shall be suitable for aerial and underground conduit installations in
the vicinity of 69kV and/or 12kV transmission line structures and
substructures.

5. The cable shall be designed for a nominal sag of not more than 1 percent
and such that absolutely no fiber strain will occur with axial loads defined
by NESC Light Loading at spans of 500 feet or less.

6. The cable shall be manufactured such that no fiber strain will be caused by
the cable itself.

7. The cable shall be of a proven design with a minimum of three (3) years of
successful operation in the field.

8. The cable shall be seamlessly integrated with the City’s existing fiber
optics network. The City has utilized Alcoa Fujikura / AFL’s
AE096HC811CA2 for majority of its backbone cable and AT&T Fitel /
OFS’ AT-34F27LT-096-CMCB for the recent upgrades. The manufacturer
shall certify that:

a) A fusion splice loss of less than 0.06 dB to the existing cables shall
be achievable following installation.
b) Proposed cable’s Mode Field Diameter shall not result in a MFD-
mismatch affecting fiber optic network’s bandwidth capability or
optical losses.

B. CONSTRUCTION:

1. The cable shall contain absolutely no metals or conductive materials.

2. The cable’s outside diameter shall be a constant value between 0.661” and
0.701”. The minimum bending radius under dynamic or static loading

City of Anaheim California Page 4 of 20 Specification E- 110, April 5, 2007


shall be less than 18 inches. Maximum operating load and minimum
breaking strength shall be > 2,200 lbs and 4,000 lbs, respectively.

3. The cable shall have an all-dielectric central anti-buckle element of fiber-


reinforced plastic with similar expansion and contraction characteristics as
the optical fibers. The buffer tubes shall be stranded around the central
member.

4. Each buffer tube shall be filled with a gel with anti-oxidant additives to
prevent water intrusion and migration. The gel shall also act as lubricant
for the fiber strands within the tube. The gel shall be chemically and
mechanically compatible with all cable components, non-nutritive to
fungus, non-toxic, and non-hygroscopic.

5. The cable shall contain filler rods, as required, with an identical diameter
as that of the buffer tubes to maintain the cable’s circular cross section. A
layer of non-hygroscopic tape shall be wrapped around the stranded buffer
tubes, making a complete core unit. The tape shall act as a heat barrier to
prevent deformation and adhesion between the buffer tubes and the inner
jacket.

6. The cable shall have a polyethylene inner jacket and rip cord over the
cable core.

7. The cable shall have strength elements consisting of two or more layers of
torque balanced aramid yarn applied helically over the inner jacket.

8. All voids in the cable including the core shall be filled with helically-
wrapped water blocking tape that will prevent water ingress and
migration.

9. The outer jacket shall be extruded directly over the strength member layer
and shall completely fill the strength member layer. The outer jacket shall
be ultraviolet-stabilized black polyethylene with rip-cord, smooth,
concentric, and shall be free from holes, splits, blisters and other surface
flaws. The jacket shall protect the cable from any affects of induced
electric fields up to 69kV. Also, the jacket shall protect the cable in
underground installations where the substructures may be submerged in
water.

10. The cable shall be constructed such that no pretensioning will be


necessary during installation.

11. The jacket or sheath shall be marked with the manufacturer’s name, cable
model number, the words “Anaheim Utilities Optical Cable”, month and
year of manufacture, and sequential meter marks. The markings shall be
repeated every one meter. The marking shall be in a contrasting color to
the cable jacket.
