It can provide protection for the fiber joint and the fiber cables since they have excellent mechanical strength and strong out shell, which ensures the joints are not damaged by the hostile environment.

Which type of cable is more preferable when high fiber counts and small diameter cables are needed?

Ribbon cable is preferred where high fiber counts and small diameter cables are needed. This cable has the most fibers in the smallest cable, since all the fibers are laid out in rows in ribbons, typically of 12 fibers, and the ribbons are laid on top of each other.
