Prysmian Group: SiroccoHYBRID Optical and Power Cables for Blown Applications

Feb. 6, 2022
Prysmian’s SiroccoHYBRID cable with a diameter of 7.7 mm can be installed by blowing into 10-mm inner diameter microducts.
Designed to meet the needs of 4G/5G small cell and edge device support as well as other applications, Prysmian’s SiroccoHYBRID cable with a diameter of 7.7 mm can be installed by blowing into 10-mm inner diameter microducts. Such 10-mm microducts are commonly used for access networks in many European and North America locations. By benefitting from existing infrastructure and low installation costs without the need for digging, it features six copper cores with a cross section area of 1 mm2, and up to 36 BendBright XS (ITU-T G.657.A2) optical fibers. The cable can be blown up to 1 km at high speed (40 m/min).

Judge’s Comment: “A hybrid cable with unique features, suitable for a broad range of applications.”
