A nonmetallic prehanger type self supporting optical fiber cable with optical fiber catenary was developed and is considered to have a long term operating capability under high tension and abnormal freak weather conditions. The nonmetallic optical fiber cable is intended to be extremely effective for long span aerial cable mounting on all types of overhead poles and power transmission towers. Moreover, this type of cable has particular resistance to the accumulation and forming of ice or snow on the cable sheath which was observed during field test investigations.
