The First Groundbreaking Technology in Fiber Optic Cable in Over 20 Years

Never before has a new fiber optic cabling solution been more of a game-changer than the groundbreaking TiniFiber® Micro Armor Fiber™ Optic Cable.

For the first time in over 20 years, the industry has an innovative alternative to conventional Aluminum Interlock Armor (AIA). Able to accommodate today’s higher bandwidth demands with ease, TiniFiber is the world’s smallest fiber optic cable. It is also 65% smaller and 75% lighter than AIA.

But, don’t let the small size and light weight fool you. With its groundbreaking, patented Micro Armor stainless steel coil to protect the fragile optic glass strands and bend radius, TiniFiber delivers a crush-proof, rodent resistant solution that also withstands the harshest environmental conditions.

Micro Armor Features and Benefits:

Resistance To

  • Crushing
  • Rodent attacks
  • Harsh weather conditions
  • Kinking or Crimping
  • Overbending
  • Resistant to accidental penetration or cutting damage

Product Values

  • Maximum glass protection with Micro armored steel (verses a softer aluminum jacket)
  • 65% smaller and 75% lighter than AIA 
  • Installed wherever conventional or where Micro armored fiber optics are used
  • Maximizes tensile strength
  • Best bend radius

Savings On

  • Shipping Costs
  • Labor hours
  • Storage & warehousing cost
  • Ease of installation
  • Reduction in pathway congestion
  • Building out costly new pathways

Savings and Efficiencies: Value for both you and your clients


  • Reduced Labor cost – pull rate is equal to a Cat 6 cable
  • May only require j-hook support instead of a ladder rack
  • Reduced conduit size in slab runs
  • Reduced freight costs
  • Reduced warehouse storage space
  • Faster delivery – pick up and delivery via service van and one person
  • Staging – requires only one man
  • Elevator access – any elevator
  • Reduced riser/vertical strain relief due to lower weight
  • Set-up on conventional cable tree – no floor jacks required
  • Less labor/cost for reel removal or disposal


  • Labor efficiency – less labor to pull/install
  • Lower install cost
  • Less core drilling
  • Firestopping reduction
  • Less ladder rack required – cost reduction
  • Reduced structural load factors – faster CO approval
  • Increased datacenter airflow – reduction in HVAC costs
  • Reduction in conduit costs
  • Smaller data center requirements
  • Faster install time
  • Reduced costs due to accelerated schedule
