Telecoms: cables and solutions


Linking communities to a new digital world

Information and communication sit at the heart of global development. And Prysmian Telecom solutions sit at the heart of many of the planet’s main infrastructures.


The world is in the midst of a data explosion. Across the globe, people are sharing, purchasing, downloading, streaming, connecting and communicating in the digital sphere. Living and working digitally is the new normal. And for network operators, this means managing an exponential increase in bandwidth to meet the world’s rising demand. At Prysmian Group, our Telecom business unit is building modern day networks that provide robust physical infrastructure, trusted IT security and long-term reliability.


The challenges
of our time

Our telecoms solutions are realising the infrastructure of today and tomorrow, helping the world to meet its most pressing challenges.


Data networks must support the exponential demands of IoT, 5G, connected buildings, Industry 4.0 and more. Ensuring high-speed connectivity in the core network, within data centres or at the edge.


Network congestion

As the world demands more speed, our networks become increasingly overcrowded.


Fast-paced, competitive markets
Our customers often work in markets that shift rapidly, and need to set themselves apart from the competition.


Energy transition
The world needs cleaner, ‘greener’ energy supplies and telecoms networks. Fibre networks are the most sustainable of technologies.
