Prysmian Presents New Solution for Integrated Power-telecom Networks

  • Prysmian Group
MILAN — Prysmian Group, a provider of energy and telecom cable systems, presented its solution to create integrated power-telecom networks. In its R&D laboratories, the company has developed a new cabling system able to bring power and ultra-broadband voice and data connection into homes. The solution, developed in particular for power utilities, allows both power and an ultra-broadband digital connection up to 1 Gbps to be delivered by the same cable.

“This is a very important innovation we’re talking about, which represents an extremely effective and efficient solution to offer ultra-broadband connections to a number of users in certain areas, rapidly and at low cost,” said Marcelo Andrade, R&D director at Prysmian Group. “Since its creation, Prysmian has been one of the main players involved in the most important innovations in the cable industry, and we’re now proud to offer the result of our efforts in a field that affects the quality of life of all of us.”

System Components
The system consists of a cable for the transport of energy, within which fiber optics are inserted, and passive connectivity. The system can also include an active electronic switch to allow transmission of information to the power cabinet and then to the substation, and a component to ensure the ultra-broadband connection.

There are many advantages of the integrated power-telecommunications system. Firstly, there is a strong reduction in network costs and implementation time, as trenching and civil works are reduced and potentially avoided. The system's performance can reach a connection speed of 1 Gbps or more, depending on the network configuration.

Prysmian produces around 18 million miles of optical fiber every year in Italy, France, The Netherlands, North America and Brazil. The Group has also recently announced the construction of a new factory in Mexico for the production of optical cables.
