Optical networks with bend insensitive fibers

Progressive digitalization is leading to a massive increase in optical network density. As a result, bend-resistant fiber optic cables such as Draka’s G.657.A1 singlemode fiber are increasingly coming into focus. In the current issue of LANline, Gerard Pera, Product Manager Fiber Optic Data Cables at BU Multimedia Solutions/Prysmian Group, describes in a comprehensive article how … Read more

Single mode fiber optic cable with improved bending performance

The incessant increase in data traffic is causing an exploding demand for transmission capacity and network infrastructure. New technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things and artificial intelligence support this trend. Optical networks must adapt to these requirements by increasing their dynamics, offering higher capacities and lower latency. At the same time, density is increasing … Read more

UC FIBRE 432: Fireproof, waterproof, flexible

Users should be aware that combined indoor/outdoor cables must be absolutely waterproof according to the current EN 60794-1. The Multimedia Solutions BU of the Prysmian Group has the right solution in its luggage: the N-Series fibre optic trunk cables in fibre numbers up to 432, currently the only cables on the market that combine high … Read more
