Prysmian Group announces its Draka UC Connect structured cabling system’s warranty has been extended to cover the company’s prestigious SiroccoXS blown fibre solutions.

SiroccoXS is now offered as part of the Draka UC Connect family of products for the first time.  SiroccoXS blown fibre system uses compressed air to blow optical fibre into pre-installed tubes.  It enables on-demand deployment of optical fibres from one internal or external network point to another, allowing for rapid upgrades to the latest fibre technologies.  Existing tube routes can also be easily interrupted at any location, so re-routing to new users can be achieved as and when required.

SiroccoXS substantially lowers network build costs, and provides more flexible design and better damage recovery performance than conventional systems, avoiding high initial capital expenditure or extensive network planning.

SiroccoXS is well suited to the needs of campus or in-building networks. 

Martin Ashton, UK Sales Manager, comments on this move: “Recognising the development of Passive Optical Network Solutions [PONS] within internal cabling architecture, we have an on-going initiative to incorporate class leading Prysmian Group solutions into the Draka UC Connect structured wiring system.  The proven and highly respected SiroccoXS blown fibre system is the first element of this initiative.”

The 25 Years Application Assurance Warranty, of which Sirroco is now included, covers Draka UC Connect connectivity products and cable which ensures performance of the Permanent Link & Channel performance in accordance with ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-C and ISO/IEC 11801.

To ensure the high standards of quality, the warranty is only available through Draka UC Connect Installation Partners who have additionally completed the Prysmian Blown Fibre training.

This initiative gives Draka UC Connect Installation Partners the opportunity to offer their customers a complete structured cabling solution, developed, manufactured, supported and warranted by Prysmian Group.  UC-Connect is now the only cabling system that Prysmian Group supports through its warranty programme for its blown fibre products.
