Dear Reader,



We’re proud to present you with this year’s second edition of NExsT magazine, Prysmian’s publication on the worlds of broadband and telecom.


Industry news includes a closer look at 5G; “The essential network infrastructure for the digital transformation of our economy and society”, according to Günther H. Oettinger, European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society. There’s more news on the Europacable Industry Charter, which guarantees product quality as well as a in in-depth look at new research from Diffraction Analysis which suggests municipal fibre in Stockholm has driven adoption of superfast broadband services, allowing city administration to reap significant benefits.


This issues Prysmian updates include Prysmian’s novel Wideband MMF solution WideCap and a 2112F capacity cable used in Australia. Further topics include a project initiated by WarwickNet, who established a partnership with the local authority and worked with the Federation of Small Businesses to bring broadband to business parks. We look at connected wearable electronics that promote healthy living and mindfulness, as well as a study from Microsoft and research leader Ipsos Mori who have uncovered Italian SME’s wish to adopt more digital tools.


As ever, we’re interested in your feedback, questions and opinions. Any topics you’d like us to cover? Anything you’d like to share with us? Get in touch at [email protected].
