Manufactured in the Montereau plant (France), they are supplied to operators, installers and distributors in over 70 countries
General Cable, the leading company in the international cable sector, has decided to group its ranges of optical fibre cables under the global FiberGen® brand. After having invented µSheath® micro-module technology, the firm’s objective is to reinforce its prominent position in the market segment of optical fibre networks for telecommunications and FTTH (Fibre To The Home) through products with a well-defined identity.
Manufactured since 1983
The FiberGen® brand includes all the optical fibre cables manufactured in General Cable’s Montereau plant in France. This type of cable has been manufactured there since 1983 and is supplied to the main operators, installers and distributors of over 70 countries. The manufacturing process allows the cables to maintain the transmission characteristics of the optical fibre, whatever their design, application and environment of use, duct, micro-duct, direct buried, aerial, indoor, tunnel and underwater. The range includes cables adapted to all needs and types of fibre, meeting the highest demands of customers. The micromodule µSheath® technology (invented in 1990) helps to manufacture increasingly compact and light cables, compatible with all existing and already installed equipment’s. It also drastically optimizes cable preparation and splicing times compared with standard loose-tube technology.
Fibre To The Home (FTTH)
To meet the needs of indoor cable laying in FTTH (Fibre To The Home) networks, the FiberGen® range offers cables adapted to this environment and to its specific installation conditions. The µSheath® MS range allow easy extraction of the fiber micromodule connecting each floor of a building. FiberGen® likewise proposes different solutions for the final connection to each end-user: cables for indoor circuits to be pulled or pushed in existing houses duct or fixed on the wall, as well as, indoor/outdoor cables which allow direct connection from the outdoor branch point up to the subscriber’s box, etc.
