Optical Cable Corporation
Optical Cable Corporation (OCC®) is a major manufacturer of military grade (QPL and COTS) fibre optic cables, connectors, assemblies and reel systems from the U.S. to Australian and New Zealand defence forces.
When OCC opened for business in 1983, the U.S. military was our first major customer. Their need was for an extremely strong, lightweight, rugged, and survivable military fiber optic cable. In addition to durability, this military cable had to efficiently transmit previously unprecedented volumes of data in the field. OCC engineers were at the forefront of the development of the tight-buffered, tight-bound cable technology that met these criteria. The result was military fiber optic cables that were easy to deploy and performed under the harshest of conditions. The strength of our military-grade cable solutions was the foundation and inspiration for our diverse portfolio of products and solutions. Our commitment to product reliability can be seen in every industry that we serve. When we first built our reputation as pioneers in fiber optic cable, OCC made a commitment to quality, performance, and service. Today, we are leaders in the engineering and manufacturing of a variety of high-performance, top-tier cabling and connectivity solutions that are used in 100+ countries around the world.
