I would like to have your advice for OSP cable use.
There are two types of OSP cable what i have.
one is the Indoor/outdoor Fiber optic cable with OFNR.
The other one is Underground OSP cable with Jelly filled.
The cable is needed to pull through the underground conduit for 2 Km.
I prefer the UG OSP cable, but my client prefers the In/out cable.
The tensile strength is same for both cable.

Either is fine, as both are "rated" (designed) for the underground application. So if the owner wants to pay for a more costly indoor/outdoor cable... great!

You could splice the indoor/outdoor cable on the final spans that enter the facilities while using the standard gel-filled OSP cable for the majority of the fiber run.
