Prysmian Group to unveil new xsNet portfolio at FTTH Council Europe Conference – Munich
Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry, will showcase its upgraded xsNet – access network – portfolio at this week’s FTTH Council Europe Conference which takes place in Munich on 15th & 16th of February.
Prysmian Group – formed by the combination of Prysmian and Draka – has maintained the former Draka xsNet brand and has rebranded and improved the system by including a selection of best of the best products from both of the former companies.
xsNet addresses the passive access network and provides tailor-made solutions for all parts of the network – Indoor/customer premises, outside plant and POP/exchange applications. The building blocks of xsNet which make this possible include a number of familiar products which have already proven themselves to be highly reliable solutions with established track records. These include SiroccoXS (Blown fibre), VertiCasaXS (MDU cabling system) and the recently launched VerTVXS (optical satellite solution) – all former Prysmian developments. From the Draka side have come the blown cable families including JetNetXS and EaseNetXS, with the whole system portfolio underpinned by a suite of leading in-house fibre technologies led by BendBrightXS, the bend insensitive fibre developed specifically for last mile applications in compliance with G657.A2/B2 requirements.
Several other products complete the overall system which can be further supported by network design services provided also by Prysmian Group. The result is an optimized system which puts Prysmian Group at the forefront of passive optical technology in Europe and indeed the rest of the world.
Phil Edwards, Executive VP of Telecoms at Prysmian Group, who will be present at the event says:
“The advantages of the new xsNet portfolio are significant in terms of providing real added value to our customers and end users. We can provide a complete end to end passive solution to suit almost every situation you are likely to encounter. We have been in a unique position in being able to draw on the strengths of our two former companies in this manner and as a result xsNet now contains a number of highly innovative elements which have been designed with ease of installation, cost effectiveness and system reliability as key criteria.”
