Prysmian Group recently rolled out two enhancements to its line of FlexRibbon products. This new line, which feature MassLink with FlexRibbon technology, is designed to support large-scale data centres operated by major companies worldwide.
Having now completed its acquisition of General Cable, Prysmian Group is launching a new organisation to begin the company’s integration.
Prysmian described the newly created group as a ‘world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry.’ It has global headquarters in Milan and reported sales of more than €11 billion (pro-forma as of 31 December 2017). There are approximately 30,000 employees across 112 plants and 25 research and development centres in more than 50 countries.
Prysmian Group has now completed its acquisition of General Cable, the company has announced. Prysmian Group signed the definitive agreement to acquire General Cable at the end of last year in a deal that valued the latter at $3 billion, including debt and certain liabilities.
MILAN, ITALY – Prysmian Group will supply more than 400km of fire resistant cables for the Royal Atlantis Resort in Dubai. The new luxury resort renamed ‘A Place to call Home’ will be completed in 2019.

“Factory 4.0 is a transformational opportunity, allowing us to streamline the way we work and support a sustainable use of resources,” stated CCO Andrea Pirondini
At this year’s OFC exhibition energy and telecom cable specialist Prysmian Group (booth 2647) will be showcasing its WideCap-OM5 multimode fibre for high-speed data communications and BendBrightXS 200µm optical fibre for high-density optical cables.
In addition, during the technical conference, Prysmian researchers will discuss how next-generation multimode fibres can be optimised to support WDM operations in data communications and space-division multiplexing operations in telecommunications to allow migration to higher bit rates and achieve higher capacity.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
