Prysmian Group was awarded the 2015 European New Product Innovation Award for its BendBrightXS optical fibre by Frost & Sullivan, the world leader in growth consulting and the integrated areas of technology research and market research.
Every year in London, it presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative product by leveraging leading-edge technologies.
The award recognizes the value-added features and benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers to customers, which in turn enhances end-customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential. BendBrightXS fibre, initially deployed for FTTH deployment, has now opened an innovative stairway for many new cable solutions applicable to a variety of network configurations.
It combines an unprecedentedly low macro-bending sensitivity (G.657.A2 compliant) and industry reference micro-bending performance, while still preserving all the features of regular singlemode fibre (G.657.D compliant).
