Prysmian Group targets XSNet fiber portfolio at BDUK FTTx projects

Prysmian Group is touting the applicability of its new XSNet suite of fiber-optic cabling products and engineering services for rural broadband projects such as those that might fall within the BDUK Broadband Development funding program.

The XSNet suite, one result of the integration of Draka’s FTTH offerings with those of Prysmian, combines fiber-optic cabling, ducting, indoor and outside plant products, and engineering services. It also includes proprietary network design software designed to map, configure, optimise, and price a network concept quickly.

Prysmian acquired Draka earlier this year (see “First phase of Prysmian/Draka integration completed”).

“Today, the Prysmian Group reinforces its position as a major UK player in FTTH products, systems, software, and services,” said Adam Ashenden, connectivity and fibre systems manager, Prysmian Group, Telecom Solutions. “Our strong UK manufacturing presence means we can readily supply our products nationwide, through an excellent logistics distribution network. We provide one-stop shopping for easy-to-integrate, standardised solutions, the broadest choice of cable, connectivity and deployment technologies as well as expert engineering and consulting services to help build a winning business case for rural projects.”

Prysmian points out that BT Openreach has approved its products, which BT has deployed. Thus, municipalities can build custom aerial networks using BT poles with BT-approved components.
