Nexans at the core of Innovations for FTTx Network Cabling Solutions


Since 2009, Nexans has decided to reinforce one of its strategic Axis in the telecom Infrastructure : the FTTx . This activity is one of the core activities of the Group for cable production – with 8 facilities involved in fiber optic cable production – and for components production – with 1 production Unit and several Design and Integration Units.  Reinforcement of this strategic axis has been achieved based on a Joint Venture between Nexans Opticable – the main European fiber Optic facility of Nexans – and the Sumitomo Group.
With this strategic move, Nexans integrates vertically his fiber et acquire direct access to State of the Art technologies of fiber including the last generation of Bend Insensitive fibers needed in the frame of FTTH deployment.
Nexans has developed innovative cabling solutions to assist operators in overcoming multiple constraints of FTTx deployment, while also delivering capital and operational expenditure savings.
Our Core Activities
The emergence of fibre optic installation in the access network and in the building introduces an increasing need for technical engineering support, consultancy in integration and deployment of pilot sites to validate solutions used for FTTx Roll Out.
With various partnerships covering complementary core activities linked to network deployment (Civil Work, ducts suppliers, installation solution providers, etc) Nexans Opticable has capitalised for over 3 years on numerous pilot projects in Europe and Africa.
The Speed Up of FTTx roll out can be obtained thanks to new installation technics with 2 main axis : optimization of re-use of existing infrastructure ( ducts, manhole, technical cabinets) and design and implementation of innovative routing & connection solutions to reduce installation and hardware costs.
Our mission with Telecom Operators
Nexans has made the strategic choice to provide a range of products and services to the Operators over and above that of just cables & components supply.  Our mission is to contribute to the design strategy and includes, where appropriate, the provision of Network Engineering & Design services in order to realise an optimised solution whilst taking into account all the constraints of the physical layer and the regulatory framework.
For that purpose, Nexans Opticable has implemented a FTTH Engineering Platform supported by Telecom Engineers, with strong background in optical fiber and with extensive field experience in physical layer design and network deployment.
This mission leads us naturally to develop added value solutions underpinned by our expertise in cables & components. On completion of the design phase, the industrial Units of Nexans – Opticable & Nexans Interface then proceed to production of the solution taking great care to ensure that Production Capacity is aligned to the Operators' deployment schedule of their Next Generation Network Strategy.
Once material has been is supplied, Nexans maintains its commitment over the life of the project by continuing to offer solutions which assist the operator in further optimizing their Operating Expenses.
