German term or phrase: FIST Gf-Muffe
Context: fiber optics

"Verbindungsgarnituren für Spleiße

Als Abzweigmuffe wird die FIST Gf-Muffe, Größe 1, mit Single Element (SE) sowie Single Circuit (SC) eingesetzt."

Does anyone know this? FIST may be a brand name, but what about Gf? Thanks for any help.

FIST Fiber ...? not familiar, if I find something I shall get back to you.

Muffe = sleeve


Explanation:
'cladding' is OK for the protective covering of the cable, but here 'sleeve' is correct -- this is a short piece of tubing that is used to cover the splice.

No idea what FIST is. Maybe try the web with Glasfaser and FIST as search terms?
