May 14, 2008 -- Following the launch last year of CasaLight, an ITU G657 compliant bend insensitive fibre, Prysmian has introduced CasaLight Plus, an enhanced performance design that further reduces the minimum working bend radius to exceed the recommendations of G657.B.

May 14, 2008 -- Following the launch last year of CasaLight, an ITU G657-compliant bend insensitive fibre, Prysmian has introduced CasaLight Plus, an enhanced performance design that further reduces the minimum working bend radius to exceed the recommendations of G657.B.

Prysmian says that while CasaLight will remain a standard fiber choice for FTTH applications, the availability of CasaLight Plus for extreme bend applications will strengthen the company's overall offering.

Now available in all of Prysmian's FTTH cable products, CasaLight Plus maintains full compliance with standard equipment, connectors, and fiber already installed in accordance with ITU Recommendation G 652.

Prysmian notes that it uses a fluorine-free production process for CasaLight Plus, as with all of its other fiber products.
