ISE Webinar, Sumitomo Electric Lightwave, Ribbon Cable

Ribbon based cables? Are we still talking about a technology that has been around since the 70s and 80s? Its time in the spotlight has come and gone, right? Ribbon based cables may not be the hot new term or the technology grabbing the attention and basking in the limelight of network design or deployment discussions, but this technology is still delivering many advantages of legacy, new and planned deployments. Why? Simply because it delivers!

Ribbon based cables deliver on the fiber capacity and density, meeting the physical space constraints, lowering labor and installation costs, yielding high quality, and performing optical pathways, ease of use and short learning curve and much, much more. The advantages of ribbon cables are not limited to just one or two deployment types. Newer benefits in newer applications are being uncovered even though the bases of the benefit have been there all along.

This presentation will review the history of ribbon-based cables, including recent and coming innovations. We’ll take a close look at the many, many advantages across multiple network and deployment applications. By the end of this presentation, you should have a good understanding of why and how ribbon cables are still a go to and starting point of many network plans and deployments.

Attendees will gain a good understanding of ribbon-based cables, why and how this technology is still a go to and starting point of many network plans and deployments.
