Today, optical networks must be adaptable to meet ever-increasing data demands with advancements such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI). In its latest Industry Insight, Prysmian Group stressed that to support the evolution of these new technologies, it is crucial that the capacity of optical networks be increased accordingly.
Bend insensitive fiber optic cables play a crucial role in the sustainability of networks for reliable and flexible connectivity. With extreme fiber count and reduced diameter, cables also make installations faster and more cost effective. Prysmian Group’s BendBrightXS fibers can provide the necessary standard of cable density and can support the necessary fiber spectrum demanded by new PON technologies. Fibers minimize macro and micro-bend losses, optimize operating costs and increase network life through greater repair resiliency.
“BendBrightXS fibers support full use of transmission bands, covering the entire wavelength spectrum. This is increasingly important in the sustainability of higher capacity networks, which will likely operate outside of current standard ranges, ”said Philippe Vanhille, Executive Vice President of the Prysmian Group, Telecom Business. “This data transmission solution enables a secure, connected and powered future for everyone. “
As the demand for data continues to increase, fiber optic networks are becoming increasingly dynamic, congested and limited in space. Therefore, fiber curls are more and more likely to occur. Preventing this is a crucial part of high performance optical networks, as fiber bends can lead to power leakage. Prysmian Group cabling solutions can help network operators stay ahead of the competition and future-proof networks, saving time, money and space. BendBrightXS cable systems secure all frequency bands and will ensure the maximum potential of optical networks.
“Network operators need to prepare for future data demands now, ahead of the expected increase in required connectivity,” said Vanhille. “Scalability, cost-effectiveness and space-saving solutions are essential to ensure operators are ready to power the world of tomorrow, today. “
