Prysmian Plays Leading Role at IWCS (USA)

Prysmian, world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry, will be playing a leading role this week in the International Wire and Cable Symposium (IWCS) to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA from November 6-9.

The IWCS brings together the world’s leading producers and users of cable in order to present and discuss the latest technological innovations in the industry.

Prysmian Group – created by the acquisition of Draka by Prysmian SpA earlier this year – is now the leading cable supplier worldwide and remains fully committed to maintaining its strong focus on technical innovation and new product development.

Furthermore the Group now has two major optical cable production facilities in USA, both close to the city of Charlotte – the original Prysmian plant at Lexington SC and the former Draka unit at Claremont NC. It is at these facilities where much of the optical cable supporting the growing demands of the current global broadband generation is produced.

Prysmian this year presents no less than 11 papers at the conference. With a strong focus on local access networks and in particular Fibre to the Home (FTTH), where Prysmian has focused most of its recent development activities, the papers cover a wide spectrum of subjects such as specialist coatings for optical fibre, fire resistance of optical cables, reduced diameter cables for FTTH applications, an optical cabling system for residential satellite TV networks and several more.

Prysmian is also present in the exhibitor section of the conference where latest optical fibre technologies are showcased and will participate in the Executive Panel session on the first day when key issues affecting the global cable industry will be discussed.
