Cables used in underwater applications are specialized and typically require more mechanical strength than cables utilized in terrestrial application. Typically these designs include one or more layers of wire armor for strength and mechanical protection for the optical fibers. This application note evaluates the pertinent application requirements, the operational risk factors and practical service life of the cable as it will be directly influenced by a number of elements.
