The group will present the new telecom product portfolio after the integration between Prysmian and Draka
Milan, June 11th, 2012 – Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry, will play a leading role at this week’s ANGA exhibition in Cologne, Germany - June 12th to 14th. ANGA is Europe’s leading Cable, Broadband and Satellite Communication event and, with the ongoing convergence of entertainment and communications services under the common theme of ‘high bandwidth provision,’ it is an ideal venue for the Telecoms sector of Prysmian Group to showcase its latest innovative solutions into the market.
Prysmian Group, created last year by the merger of Prysmian and Draka, has a wealth of experience across the entire Telecoms sector with two of its main business units providing a perfect match for the overall scope of the ANGA event.
The Multimedia Solutions (MMS) group provides cable solutions for every communication need in modern homes, offices, business premises, industry and transport infrastructures. MMS develops, produces and sells copper and optical fibre cables that cover virtually every communications application. The business group will showcase a Draka hybrid cable solution to future-proof smart buildings and offices against today’s constant broadband infrastructure advancement, while demonstrating how effective screening protection can remove troublesome RF interference and noise in digital environments.
Prysmian will be displaying the Draka CATV and Hybrid range of products, and the company will demonstrate how bend-insensitive technology gives a measurable boost in functionality and solution quality especially within higher cabling density environments. BendBrightXS bend-insensitive fibre and shielded CATV cables will be showcased via live demos shown on the company’s stand (H21, Hall 10.2).
The Telecom Solutions business operates in the telecommunications sector with a wide range of cable and system solutions addressing the high bandwidth provision needs of major network operators and service providers. The portfolio covers all areas of the market – including long distance, submarine and metro systems – although the area of greatest activity at present is within the ‘last mile’ access networks for which Prysmian has developed the xsNet suite of products and systems which will be present at ANGA.
xsNet addresses the passive access network and provides tailor made solutions for all parts of the FTTx network - Indoor, outside and POP applications. The building blocks of xsNet include a number of familiar products which have already proven themselves to be highly reliable solutions. These include SiroccoXS (Blown fibre), VertiCasaXS (MDU cabling system) and VerTVXS (optical satellite solution) - all former Prysmian developments. From the Draka side have come the blown cable families including JetNetXS and EaseNetXS, with the whole portfolio underpinned by a suite of leading in-house fibre technologies led by BendBrightXS, the bend-insensitive fibre developed specifically for last mile applications in compliance with G657.A2/B2 requirements.
Prysmian Group will be present at stand H21, Hall 10.2 with team of commercial and technical experts available to discuss all aspects of the products and their applications
