HFCL has launched revolutionary Intermittently Bonded Ribbon (IBR) Cables in the United Kingdom (UK). As a leading supplier in the UK market, this strategic move is in line with HFCL’s global expansion plans and aims to further tap into UK’s urban and rural markets, accelerate 5G and FTTP adoption and meet the growing bandwidth demands.
The basis of the new cables is individual Intermittently Bonded Ribbons, each made up of 12 optical fibres, which are bonded together at specific intervals along their lengths. Unlike traditional flat ribbons, flexible IBRs can bend and conform to the space available inside a cable. Groups of IBRs can, therefore, be bundled together into cables that provide twice the fibre packing density of traditional cables in the same volume.
IBR cables enable installation of higher fibre counts in small diameter ducts, especially useful in congested areas with very limited space. One of the significant features of the new cable family is the high productivity mass fusion splicing that enables both faster installation and quick restoration in case of an accidental outage.
Furthermore, HFCL has secured the order aggregating to around Rs 1015 crore, from Madhya Pradesh Jal Nigam, a Government of Madhya Pradesh Undertaking (MPJN). This order encompasses for providing EPC Services including provision for laying of optical fiber cables on critical and important routes, for the execution of Multi – Village Drinking Water Supply Network in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh (Project). The installation of optical fiber cables in these areas will also enhance the operation & maintenance of the network.
HFCL is a leading telecom infrastructure developer, system integrator and manufacturer of high-end telecom equipment and optical fibre cables, having its own manufacturing facilities at Solan and Goa, and its subsidiary i.e., HTL facilities in Chennai and Hosur.
