This paper describes a new drop cable, a new cluster-type drop cable for residential premises, a new indoor cable, a new termination cable and a new riser cable for fiber distribution in residential and business premises. The structural design of these cables is investigated and the optimum structures for cost reduction of cable and installation are obtained. Based on the results, these cables are manufactured and their transmission and mechanical characteristics are confirmed to be stable.
