Pirelli Cable and Systems North America (www.pirelli.com) introduced its Premises Ribbon Distribution Cables at the 2001 Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference. Pirelli's Premises Ribbon Distribution Cables provide a flexible, easy to install solution that enables the transition of high-fiber-count OSP (outside plant) ribbon cable from the splice vault into the communications center. Pirelli Cables and Systems North America announced that its new Premises fiber optic cable facility in Lexington County, SC is nearing completion and production is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of this year. Market growth and the success of Pirelli's Premises fiber optic cable products have created a need for additional capacity. Pirelli's strategic relationship with Tyco Electronics is a major demand driver as well.
