BRAID
Explanation:
You could use the word braid, it is commonly translated this way.
In fact it is defined in the glossary of telecommunications as
an essential part of many fiber optic cable designs, consisting of a layer of woven yarn. Note: In the case of single-fiber loose-buffered or two-fiber "zip cord" loose-buffered fiber optic cables, the braid is situated between the buffer tube and jacket.
In the case of cables having multiple buffer tubes, the braid is usually situated between the inner jacket and outer jacket.
2.- Loosely, an unwoven parallel bundle of yarn situated around the tight buffer of a single-fiber or two-fiber "zip cord" fiber-optic cable. Note1: The braid serves to add tensile strenght to the cable. The braid may also be anchored to an optical connector or splice organizer assembly to secure the end of the cable. Note2: the braid is often of an aramid yarn

Hope it helps!! Good Luck!
