Prysmian leads the way with FTTH at CommunicAsia 2011, Singapore

Prysmian Cables & Systems will present its state-of-the-art technology for the telecom industry and updated FTTH (Fibre To The Home) product portfolio next week at CommunicAsia 2011, the leading ICT conference and exhibition in South East Asia. The event takes place in Singapore from 21st to 24th June.

The region continues to be a focus of activity in the telecoms sector with many of the ASEAN economies investing heavily in the creation of optical fibre rich telecom networks allowing consumers to benefit from the highest broadband speeds available through the provision of direct fibre links to the household. Prysmian is active across the entire region, having a major production facility for fibre optic cable at Cikampek in Indonesia and regional headquarters in Singapore.

Major supply contracts for telecom networks are ongoing in most of the region including Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and Philippines with a new project recently secured in Malaysia for the provision of Prysmian's revolutionary VertiCasa™ system. The VertiCasa™ system - on display at CommunicAsia - allows an optical fibre network to be rapidly and cost effectively deployed within a high rise multi dwelling unit allowing all occupants to have a dedicated fibre connection to the network - providing unlimited bandwidth capabilities and the ability to receive a vast array of telecom services.

Another of Prysmian's new innovations present at CommunicAsia is VerTV™ which provides a fibre link in conventional satellite TV systems - eliminating the copper coax 'bottleneck' - demonstrating that with the ever growing consumer demand for greater bandwidth, Prysmian continues to be highly committed to bringing innovative Broadband solutions to homes throughout Asia.

As an outcome of the currently on-going merger, the new group resulting from the integration between Prysmian and Draka will leverage on an extended product offering in the telecom cable market. The new group will be able to offer integrated cable solutions focused on high-end telecom, from optical cables tailored for all today’s challenging environments, to FTTx systems based upon existing technologies and specially developed proprietary optical fibres, to solutions for radio, TV and film, central office switching and datacom. At CommunicAsia 2011 the Group – new worldwide leader in the cable industry – will be represented by senior members from both the Prysmian and Draka teams.
