Optical fiber cables installed in seabed were divided into the deep water optical fiber cables and the shallow water optical fiber cables (SOFC) in the light of the depth of installation. Shallow water optical fiber cables, belonged to submarine optical fiber cables, are used in not only the connection among the islands and the channels but also the extend lines of land telecommunication. The shallow optical fiber cable presented in this paper is mainly used in
Guangdong Province. Some main technology characteristics of cable and the test results are introduced in this paper. Simple structure, lightweight and fine performances are the peculiarity of this shallow water optical fiber cable.
