1. A connectorized fiber optic cable, comprising:
a cable jacket;
at least one optical fiber and at least one strength member extending from the cable jacket at a cable jacket interface; and
a bonding agent disposed in at least one cavity inside the cable jacket at the cable jacket interface to form a demarcation inside the cable jacket at the cable jacket interface, the bonding agent attaching the at least one optical fiber and the at least one strength member together to inhibit longitudinal movement of the at least one optical fiber relative to the at least one strength member.
