German term or phrase: Zugabfangung / Eingangsader / Ausgangsader

"... werden die Spleiße in der Kassette abgelegt und die Eingangsader bzw. die Ausgangsadern in Zugabfangungen festgelegt."

incoming fiber / outgoing fiber

While I did not find Zugabfangung, I did find Zugelement - strength member
[WB Optische Kommunikationstechnik]
A search on "strength member + fiber optics" netted quite a few results.
For instance:
The basic optical fiber is provided with a buffer coating which is mainly used for protection during the manufacturing process. This fiber is then enclosed in a central PVC loose tube which allows the fiber to flex and bend, particularly when going around corners or when being pulled through conduits. Around the loose tube is a braided Kevlar yarn strength member which absorbs most of the strain put on the fiber during installation. Finally, a PVC outer jacket seals the cable and prevents moisture from entering.

See if that will fit into your context.

zugabfang


Explanation:
Just a guess to the meaning of the word: (from a non-fiber-expert)

It protects the fiber/cable from being pulled out of its point of attachment, when a force is exerted on the rest of the cable.
Either the cable is clamped down or there is an extra loop or some similar contraption. Same thing exists in normal electric plugs.
If you can't find a definite translation you could become creative
with words like
tensile, safety,compensator, stop, etc.
