Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9854732A1] A hybrid telecommunication cable comprises four electric conductors (3.1 to 3.4 inclusive) in a balanced quad-group configuration included within a cable jacket (1). In a central cavity (6) between the four electric conductors and/or in peripheral cavities (8.1 to 8.4 inclusive), there is included an optical conductor (7). The optical conductor is an optical fibre (7.1), which is partially thickened up with a fixed sheathing (7.2) up to a maximum diameter (d3) which is smaller than a standard diameter (d3s). Advantage: optical conductor may be included in the cable without increasing the diameter (d) of the cable and disturbing the balanced quad-group configuration, or facilitates the design of cables with a smaller diameter.
