Optic Fibre Cables

Powering the future of communication through fibre networks

Prysmian is pioneering technology that will deliver information at optimum speed, bringing new opportunities to industries and connecting communities worldwide.Fast internet speeds are important, but it’s just one aspect to consider. To accelerate connectivity everywhere, Prysmian is also setting new standards in terms of low latency, reliability and the management of ever-greater data volumes.

Our range of single-mode, multi-mode and specialty fibres are designed for all applications. With five production sites around the world, and centres of excellence in Italy, the Netherlands and France, we are a world-leading manufacturer of optical fibre, working at the cutting edge of speed and reliability. Prysmian delivers a superior level of dedicated customer service, support and delivery options for all our fibre types. See our full range of fibre optic products.

Prysmian, the only manufacturer to produce colour coded 180µm fiber optic

Prysmian has published a new whitepaper on optical fiber with 180µm diameter, as the worldwide first and only manufacturer to produce this product. Reduced diameters fiber and cables lead to faster installations, reduced packaging and transport costs, and decreased carbon footprints during network constructions. Prysmian is currently the only manufacturer to produce a reduced diameter 180µm optical fibre that is already colour coded.

Inside Optical Fibres


The Prysmian Fibre Optic Division has been providing a world-leading service to the telecoms industry for 30 years. We provide innovative products for a full range of applications, spanning long-haul, metropolitan, access, FTTx, and premises applications.

Our modelling and design expertise, together with our technology and production processes, is reflected in a complete portfolio of four mainstream single-mode optical fibre types:

·         Broadly spread G.652 series

·         Submarine and ultra long-haul G.654 series

·         Innovative long distance G.655/G.656 non-zero dispersion shifted fibres (NZDSF) series

·         The G.657 series – bend-insensitive optical fibres, critical for FTTx rollouts.

The Prysmian multi-mode optical fibres for Datacom, enterprises, and premises cable industries, are based on our Plasma-Activated Chemical Vapour Deposition Process (PCVD). This is acknowledged worldwide as offering the best core-profile accuracy in multi-mode fibres.

The complete portfolio covers the full range of application standards, from OM1 and OM2 optical fibres, right up to high-data-rate OM3 and OM4.

All multi-mode optical fibres produced by Prysmian are coated with DLPC9 coating to significantly reduce microbending. Our products cover Local Access Networks (LANs), data centres and server farms, central offices, and Storage Area Networks (SANs).

DrakaElite is Prysmian's Specialty Fibre suite, dedicated to the specialty market segment. It has a comprehensive product range offering solutions and active and passive components for the medical, marine, oil & gas, and telecoms sectors.
With more than two decades of experience in the field of optical fibre technologies, a unique proprietary process, and an extended patent portfolio, DrakaElite offers an extensive number of solutions that exceed the requirements of your applications or your market.
Prysmian is combining state-of the-art glass technology with advanced coating and buffer technology in an industrialised manner, paving the way towards unprecedented performances and new applications.

WideCap Multimode Fibre

WideCap is a ground-breaking multi-mode system that delivers OM4 performance within the 850-950nm-wavelength window, providing a cost-effective and power-efficient solution for data centre networks.

BendBrightXS 180um

Prysmian has reached a new milestone in fibre miniaturisation. BendBrightXS 180µm is a single-mode optical fibre that drastically reduces cable diameters for most OSP cable designs, increases fibre density in ducts, and reduces size and weight of aerial cables.
