Milan, April 1st, 2008 – Prysmian Cables & Systems will this week set off on its 2008 Fibre to the Home (FTTH) European Roadshow. Following the success of last year’s event the Prysmian mobile technology facility will open the Roadshow at Aachen in Germany on 2nd April and over the next six weeks will travel as far as Turkey where it will participate at the Caspian Telecom Conference in Istanbul on 17th and 18th April.

The adoption of FTTH is expanding rapidly around the world and activities in Europe are now gathering momentum with many municipalities and local authorities – as well as the more traditional telecom operators – starting to build optical ‘last mile’ networks. The Roadshow features a specially constructed, interactive exhibition trailer full of all of Prysmian’s latest FTTH product solutions including blown fibre, preconnectorised drop cable, bend insensitive fibre and the latest addition to the portfolio, VerticasaTM, a cable system for multi dwelling unit applications. Visitors will be able to get hands-on experience of the different technologies and speak to a team of product specialists who can provide advice on network planning and design

Other countries to be visited during the event include Serbia, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Switzerland and Holland. The chosen locations represent a mix of territories in which for some FTTH is a current reality whilst in others fibre in the access network is still very much in the planning stages.

Director of Prysmian’s global telecom business, Mr Giovanni B. Scotti commented, “Our Roadshow in Western Europe last year attracted more than 1200 visitors with a direct interest in FTTH. The feedback we received from them regarding the value of this type of activity was extremely positive and we expect a similar reaction from this year’s event”.
