Prysmian showcases latest innovations at FTTH Conference

Prysmian Group, a global leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, is showcasing its latest innovations in quality, future-proof networks at FTTH Conference 2019, taking place in the Netherlands.

The event which opened on March 12 will conclude later today (March 14), in Amsterdam.

The group will present for the first time to the European market its 6,912 fibre MassLink Cable with FlexRibbon Technology, meeting the highest fibre count within the industry, after its debut last week at the OFC Conference and Exhibition 2019 in San Diego, CA, in the US.

The 6,912 fibre FlexRibbon provides an ultra-compact outside plant cable design that contains 6,912 bend-insensitive fibres, with a cable diameter small enough to fit into a 50.8mm duct.

By using FlexRibbon technology, ribbons are rolled up and packed together in small diameter sub-units, still providing the advantages of mass fusion splicing. Originally designed for use by hyper-scale data-centre customers, 6,912 fibre MassLink has potential uses in all telecom markets.

With this amount of fibre in a single cable, this product design provides installers and splicers with craft friendliness and superior fibre management. The addition of the 6,912 fibre cable further expands Prysmian’s portfolio of MassLink Fibre Cable with FlexRibbon Technology, which includes also 1,728 and 3,456 fibre count FlexRibbon products, fitting into a 31.75mm and 38.1mm duct, respectively.

Philippe Vanhille, executive vice president telecom business at Prysmian Group, said: “Being partner of choice for main telecom operators, our company supports its customers in the realisation of some of their most important projects where quality of products and innovative cabling solutions are fundamental to meet the increasingly demanding needs of modern broadband networks.”

“We therefore confirm our commitment to constantly investing in our optical fibre and cable capacities to support our customers in developing new reliable and cost-effective broadband networks,” Vanhille added.

Prysmian Group will be Platinum Sponsor at this year’s Conference, and at its stand P06 will also be displayed the company’s full offer for optical connectivity solutions providing flexibility in design, simple modularity for upgrading and superior quality performance for all cable management needs.

Moreover, the company will showcase the Karona Overblow System enabling the installation of high density optical fibre cable into pre-existing sub-ducted routes, containing already existing legacy cable, and its portfolio for multi conductor FTTA hybrid cables for mobile applications. Live cable jointing demonstrations will also be available throughout the day. – TradeArabia News Service
