SARAO requires optical fibre drop cable containing G. 657A1 and OM4 optical fibres to be used in MeerKAT Extension and SKA1-Mid projects respectively. It forms part of the DFN subsystem and transports data and timing signal from the equipment at the focus of the dish to the dish pedestal (see figure 2). The antenna is steerable and the cable is thus subjected to repeated bending over its 30 years lifetime. Due to the sensitive timing signal requirements, it is a requirement that this cable has a loose tube construction.
