Optical Cable Corporation
Founded in 1983, OCC was among the first companies to realize the potential of fiber optics through designing and manufacturing some of the most reliable, rugged and innovative cable products in the world. The U.S. Military needed an extremely strong, lightweight, rugged, and survivable fiber optic cable, able to efficiently transmit previously unprecedented volumes of data in the field. OCC and its engineers were at the forefront of the development of the tight-buffered, tight-bound cable technology that met these criteria. The result: cables that were easy to deploy and performed under the harshest of conditions.
OCC's success in the battlefield provided a foundation for the creation of a broad fiber optic cable offering built on the evolution of their technologies, as well as opportunities to expand their product offerings beyond fiber optic cabling.
OCC has evolved into a world-class provider of a complete line of fiber optic and copper cabling and connectivity products to a broad customer base. While their heritage started with military, their expertise now extends in to the enterprise, broadcast, industrial, harsh environment, and various specialty markets, and reaches worldwide through our network of distributors with customers in more than 70 countries.
