Nexans Launches a High-density Multifiber Optical Cabling Solution

PARIS, FRANCE Nexans, a international supplier of cables and cabling solutions, is complementing its KINOPTIC offering for fiber-optic infrastructure and access networks with a global high-capacity solution consisting of up to 1,008 optical fibers.

As increasingly densely populated cities place a heavy load on underground infrastructure, the mass deployment of FTTH networks requires careful consideration of how best to control investment in civil engineering works. Although duct sharing, as recommended by regulators in several Western European countries, provides an answer to this problem, it increases the need for higher-capacity equipment at all stages of the transmission chain.

Nexans offers an extremely compact high-density multifiber solution that will help operators implement their broadband strategies cost-effectively. This solution comprises up to 1,008 optical fibers distributed across seven strands, which are in turn made of 12 microsheaths that contain 12 fibers each.

High Performance and High Efficiency
This high-performance and high-efficiency solution, developed at the Nexans facility in Cortaillod, Switzerland, doubles capacity while increasing the cable diameter by only 15 percent compared to conventional technologies. Suited for mid-span applications, Nexans’ solution is complemented by a range of high-density accessories.

“The current challenge is to connect as many subscribers as possible while at the same time minimizing the impact of civil engineering works, which account for up to 80 percent of the FTTH infrastructure cost,” says Raymond Voillat, vce president for sales and marketing at Nexans. “With this high-density solution, we significantly reduce time on site for our customers.”

Flexible and resistant to tension, the high-density cables in the KINOPTIC range are also designed for easy installation. For example, the microsheathing that protects the optical fibers can be stripped by hand, which reduces the preparation time by 50 percent.
