Prysmian offers 180 µM fibre cables

Prysmian Group has extended its Sirocco Extreme range of microduct cables to include its latest 576f cable.

The cable boasts 576 fibres in a diameter of 8.2mm, providing a fibre density of 10.9 fibres per mm2, and can be installed into a 10mm duct.

Sirocco Extreme microduct cables utilise Prysmian’s BendBright 180µm single-mode (ITU-T G.657.D, G.657.A2) bend insensitive fibre which is fully compatible for splicing with any standard fibre, offering a future-proof solution that is prepared for evolved systems.

Available in fibre counts from 192 to 576 and conforming to international standards for optical and mechanical performance, the Sirocco Extreme cables benefit from the use of Prysmian’s PicoTube technology. This makes them up to 15% smaller than Sirocco HD microduct cables, Prysmian’s previous 200µm microduct cables.

As a consequence, it is possible to install more fibres into a congested duct space and smaller ducts can be used for new installations, reducing installation costs and the use of less raw materials. This provides further benefits of a decreased total cost of network deployment and smaller environmental footprint.
