Milan, 19 June, 2012 – Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry, will use this week's CommunicAsia 2012 exhibition in Singapore - June 19-22 - as the launching pad for the latest addition to its telecoms cable system portfolio.

The xsMobile solutions of Prysmian Group provide the answer to a full optical fibre antenna network necessary to deliver 4G - LTE and finally LTE-Advanced services. xsMobile is built on the long experience of (copper based) mobile cable supply for the current 2G and 3G antennae.
Prysmian Group's xsMobile solution addresses the next generation wireless broadband deployment and according to Gert Hoefman, Vice President of Telecom Solutions, xsMobile offers a full fibre optic solution for FTTA, from a flexible, easily upgradeable backhaul network through to 'last mile' fibre to the Remote Radio Head (RRH) in the antenna tower. "xsMobile provides solutions for three antenna tower configurations - stand alone, roof top and distributed antenna systems (DAS) to deploy FEMTO cells" explains Mr Hoefman.
Prysmian Group's xsMobile features bend insensitive BendBrightXS optical fibre (ITU-T standard G.652.A2/B2) complemented by a suite of optical cable products (pre-terminated or field-spliced) and a full connectivity portfolio.
