Also this year Prysmian Group is taking part to the IWCS International Cable & Connectivity Symposium from September 29th to October 2nd in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA), the premier venue for new technologies in cable and connectivity products, processes and applications, gathering approximately 1,200 Engineers and Managers from the cable & connectivity supply chain to network with peers and hear over 130 presentations on new innovations and novel technologies.

Prysmian Group will take part in the conference confirming its relevant role as main sponsor and it will hold several speeches and panels from its experts.



Between the group of Panelists there will be Srini Siripurapu, the EVP and Chief R&D Officer for Prysmian Group. He will provide his unique vision giving a speech about how his industry will respond to the needs for the exponential broadband network infrastructure growth, including the network developments required by the upcoming 5G technology.

He will discuss the demand for bandwidth and always-on connections, at sites or in mobility, will constantly increase. This imposes profound transformation of the telecom, datacentre and datacom network architectures. Three crucial infrastructural challenges will need to be addressed to enable this bold vision: Fibre ubiquity, Power ubiquity and Site ubiquity. The answer to these challenges will unleash innovation in fibre densification, hybrid cable systems and connectivity. At the conference, the focus will be fostering user friendly and environmentally sustainable solutions. Increasingly passive components in our telecommunications and energy infrastructure will be replaced by smart solutions that can self-regulate and provide an unprecedented consumer experience.

Besides S. Siripurapu, a number of Prysmian Group’s experts will take part in several sessions during the Symposium, showing once again Prysmian’s leadership in technology and R&D.
