Prysmian Group will be exhibiting its range of highly reliable, cost effective Draka UCFUTURE branded cables at Data Centre World Asia, 9-10th October at the MBS Expo & Convention Centre, Singapore on Booth J60. In addition, the company will be holding a presentation on Next Generation Infrastructure for New Data Centres 9th October at 12.15 at the Energy Efficiency, Cost Management and DCIM Theatre.

New products being launched at the show include an Ultra High Density (HD) Patch panel providing up to 144 fibre connections in 1U of rack space. The new panel can be configured with either 8 or 12 fibre MPO to LC cassettes (or a combination of both) and features innovative pivot design cassette trays for ease of field operation. Also being introduced is a new copper data solution incorporating a new HD copper patch panel (48 ports in 1RU) and a new modular jack with a very small form factor which is the same from Cat 5e to Cat 6A. The system is compatible with Prysmian’s Draka UC Connect SLIMFLEX small OD patch cord, which facilitates high density patching with an industry leading outside diameter of 4.5mm.

In addition to these new products, a range of Flex Ribbon fibre cables will also take centre stage, which incorporate the latest technology for a higher fibre count (up to 6912 fibres) yet remain small in diameter for space saving, flexibility and easy management and maintenance.

Prysmian will also be exhibiting its UCFUTURE Pre-Terminated Copper cable solution, and a range of pre-terminated MPO patch panels for medium and high density application.

Prysmian’s stand will not only be home to the latest world beating solutions, but will also feature 100Gbps live tests using Finisar 100G SWDM4 QSFP28 transceivers and Viavi Tester.

Draka UCFUTURE branded cables meet current requirements regarding packing density in data centres and have been designed to facilitate the move to next-generation 40/100 Gigabit-Ethernet. For more information, visit Prysmian Group at Data Centre World Asia on Booth J60 or go to

Prysmian Group showcases its new cable solutions with WideCap, Prysmian’s WideBand multimode fibre, at Data Centre World Asia

Cables and systems specialist Prysmian Group is showcasing its world-leading cables solutions which now incorporate WideCap Multimode Fibre for wavelength division multiplexing systems at Data Centre World Asia.

The high-capacity fibre can handle wavelengths up to 953nm, 100nm longer than conventional OM4 fibre. This ability to handle longer wavelengths adds three additional channels for increased capacity. The laser optimised WideCap multimode fibre with WDM systems transmit four times more data than legacy OM4 fiber giving it the capacity to support 100 Gbps in a single fibre to help meet the increasing amounts of data being handled by data centres.

Exponential increase in internet-connected devices and cloud systems drive the data center to migrate to higher speeds. As data centers will be looking to migrate to 40 and 100 Gbps in the near future, Prysmian’s cabling solutions with WideCap MMF offer data center owners great flexibility: WideCap cables support legacy applications based on multi-fibre infrastructure with MPO connectivity and emerging systems based on WDM with duplex connectivity.

Prysmian’s cabling solutions with WideCap fibres provides cabling simplicity for 40 and 100 Gbps speeds and a path for future four-fibre 400 Gbps break-out systems. A duplex fibre patch cord will support 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps. “High-density cabling solutions, i.e. 1.2 mm Prysmian patch cord, enter the field of 100 Gbps at low cost” says Tayfun Eren, Product Manager. “Data centre networks will be required to reach 400 Gbps in few years’ time. Prysmian’s Flextube® compact data centre cables together with WideCap fibers will allow future parallel links at 400 Gbps using only 4 fibres.”

WideCap complies with or exceeds the following standards: new WideBand multimode fibre standard TIA-492AAAE, IEC 60793-2-10 type A1a.3 Optical Fibre Specification, ISO/IEC 11801 OM4 specification.
