Prysmian Group introduced its 6,912 fiber MassLink Cable with FlexRibbon Technology product at OFC 2019. With the highest fiber count in the industry, ‘the 6,912 fiber FlexRibbon provides an ultra-compact outside plant cable design that contains 6,912 bend-insensitive fibers, with a cable diameter small enough to fit into a 50.8mm duct,’ per the company. Using the proprietary FlexRibbon technology, ‘ribbons are rolled up and packed together in small diameter sub-units, still providing the advantages of mass fusion splicing. Originally designed for use by hyperscale data center customers, the 6,912 fiber MassLink has potential uses in all telecom markets. With this amount of fiber in a single cable, this product design provides installers and splicers with craft friendliness and superior fiber management.’
