Prysmian to demo 6,912 fibre MassLink cable at FTTH Conference 2019

Tuesday 12 March 2019 | 12:08 CET | News
Milan-listed cable maker Prysmian said it will be showcasing its new 6,912 MassLink fibre-optic cable in Europe for the first time at the forthcoming FTTH Conference 2019 in Amsterdam on March 12-14. The cable has the highest fibre count in the industry, containing 6,912 bend-insensitive fibres within a cable diameter small enough to fit into a 2-inch duct. By using FlexRibbon technology, ribbons are rolled up and packed together in small diameter sub-units, said the company. It was first unveiled at the recent OFC Conference in San Diego.
