Prysmian Lands CityFibre Deal
Broadband World News, , 6/17/2019
LONDON -- Prysmian Group, a world leader in telecom and energy cable systems, has been awarded a strategic supplier agreement with CityFibre, a leading UK provider of wholesale full fibre infrastructure.
The multi-million-pound deal to supply fibre optic cable has been announced as CityFibre’s £2.5 billion roll-out of full fibre networks gathers pace across the UK. CityFibre has already unveiled 12 Gigabit Cities where it is extending its existing metro networks to nearly every home and business and has a goal to reach five million UK homes in more than 50 cities by 2025.
Prysmian has developed a comprehensive range of cable and connectivity solutions to support the growing UK Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) market. It will soon begin to supply CityFibre with optical cable for both underground and aerial applications in an initial two-year deal. With a local manufacturing presence reinforced by production capacities across the globe, Prysmian is well positioned to support this rapidly expanding sector.
“We are delighted to have been selected as a supply partner by CityFibre at this pivotal moment in the UK fibre optic cable market. Our experience working with customers rolling out full fibre infrastructures around the world means that we have the products and technical expertise to enable us to make positive contribution toward the goals of CityFibre in the UK” said Carlos Lopez, Telecom Business Unit Director, Prysmian UK.
James Thomas, Director of Supply Chain at CityFibre, said: “Given our FTTP ambitions our choice of fibre supplier is critical to us. We are focused on establishing a supply chain that can deliver the high-quality materials we need at scale now and for the future of our roll-out. We are delighted to have secured Prysmian, a fibre manufacturer with such a strong reputation, as a strategic supplier for our roll-out.”
