Prysmian Group Introduces 432 Count Microduct Cable

  • Prysmian Group North America
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY — Prysmian Group North America, a producer of copper and fiber optic cable and solutions for data, video and voice transmission applications, recently announced a new addition to its extensive ezMicroduct product family. This latest addition allows 432 fibers and optional tone wires to be placed into a 14mm inside diameter microduct.

Multiple Microducts

“Multiple Microducts can be installed in the same space as a standard duct,” said Jon Fitz, Prysmian Group’s product line manager for North American Telecom Solutions. “The higher duct count allows customers to defer investment by installing cables incrementally. It can also eliminate fiber splicing by permitting more diverse duct routes.”

Bend Insensitive Fiber
A key enabler of this new product is 200 micron fiber Bend Insensitive Fiber. Remarkably, the glass in this fiber is identical to the same type of 250 micron fiber. This permits it to be seamlessly spliced to legacy fibers using standard splice equipment.

“Many microduct users want higher fiber counts, as well as the ability to locate installed cables,” said Marc-Olivier Blais, who manages the ezMicroduct product line. “This new design supports both requirements without forcing customers to choose between a 432 count and the inclusion of tone wires. In fact, our new design also boasts capacity for an additional 96 fibers bringing the total to 528, making it one of the highest fiber density microduct products on the market.”
