Prysmian to showcase new cable, connectivity solutions during Fiber Connect and ISE EXPO

Aug. 17, 2023
The fiber cable provider will give attendees a sneak peek at various new connector and cabling solutions.

Prysmian is leveraging two upcoming events--Fiber Connect 2023 and the ISE EXPO 2023 shows—to introduce a new set of fiber optic cable and connectivity products aimed at large and rural broadband providers.

The company said its new solutions respond to the need for accelerated fiber broadband deployments to enable faster, more reliable broadband.

During the events, Prysmian will present four new solutions, including:

· SiroccoHD™ Cable: Designed to provide optimized jetting performance for underground microduct installations or jetting directly over existing cable. This cable's reduced diameter and increased fiber density offer cost savings to telecom network owners and builders while allowing them to reduce carbon and environmental footprints to meet sustainability goals and requirements.

· Eagle™ Closure: Focused on simplifying rural broadband, Prysmian’s Eagle closure handles everything from drops to a 288-count butt splice in a modular, easy-to-understand package.

· ezPlan™ ADSS Solution: The ezPlan system lightens the load on your pole line, budget and engineering team. ezPlan is quicker to install than aerial lashing and more resilient to storm damage.

· Hardened Fiber Optic Connectors (HFOC): Prysmian offers various drop cable and connector options.

These product introductions follow recent White House events and announcements related to nationwide commitments and investments made for broadband deployment. In June 2023, Prysmian Group joined the White House to celebrate funding for high-speed internet infrastructure deployment through the Broadband Equity Access and Deployment (BEAD) program, followed by a plant tour for Biden-Harris Administration officials of Prysmian’s recently renovated fiber optic cable manufacturing plant in Jackson, Tennessee.
