Paper Abstract

Optical ribbons are light waveguides whose most important advantages are: identification of the fibers, mass splicing, and fibers organized in a parallel arrangement. Consequently, they can be used in cables in which connection and installation lead to a decrease of cost, compared to current techniques. This paper covers two fields: the ribbon as a waveguide, and the ribbon cable inspected in various uses (duct, direct buried, distribution and building).
