ACI highlights issue of golden samples Print E-mail

ACI logoApproved Cables Initiative (ACI) believes the practice of testing golden samples and ignoring the value of third party approval and independent testing risks flooding the market with substandard cable. The ACI understands that not only are some manufacturers producing golden samples* to meet specifications and standards and in some instances to obtain a third party test report, but this summer, a cable manufacturer secured an order by supplying golden samples from another legitimate cable producer.

Tratos Academy: Going for Growth in Knowsley Print E-mail

tratos-inauguration-phase1-2015-09 An academy to further develop the skills of the Knowsley employees of cable manufacturer Tratos will deliver the first of its training modules this year. The idea for the academy prompted an in-depth survey of the Merseyside workforce, an exercise which revealed significant optimism about the future for the plant and Tratos’ ambitions for the company as a whole. It also helped assess current skills and knowledge and included views of senior management and the sales team as well as the Knowsley workforce. 
Described as an education approach, the academy’s structure will allow modules to be delivered anywhere across the company’s all around the world and will be open to long-standing colleagues as well as new employees.

Fiberness - The beating heart of broadband, and ultra, showcased at Pieve Print E-mail

FTTH-tratos 2015 engWorld-leaders from the telecommunications industry gathered at the Tiber Valley in Pieve Santo Stefano for a landmark event, hosted by Tratos. One of the most anticipated events in the industry’s calendar, the focus was on the development of broadband and ultra, and ambitious goals to serve the European Digital Agenda. Tratos demonstrated its commitment to retaining its place as a European leader in the production of cables and fibre optics, research and the continuous development of new technical solutions. 
The venue was, as every year, the company’s birthplace in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy. The company has grown to more than 400 employees, fostering trade relations with 52 countries around the world and developing manufacturing sites in Italy and England.
This year's conference, titled "Cabling metro and FTTH networks", was divided into two parts: a strategic view, where leading members of the National Telecommunication Operators presented their insights in the field of broadband networks and ultra, and a second that had a technical focus and included analysis of field-proven solutions. 

Tratos’ New Generation Fibre Cable to Speed Broadband Print E-mail


A new series of optical fibre cable has been designed by Tratos Ltd specifically to increase domestic broadband speed and reliability. It’s faster and easier to install too. 
Its last-mile network fibre optics hold the potential for significantly faster response to the demand for development of broadband connectivity. The Anglo Italian cable company predicts it will be a key facilitators for this, one of the most rapidly developing sectors in the next few years.
With its FTTH (Fibre to the Home) range, Tratos has developed a super-simple solution for different installation systems.
These cables can be used inside buildings to connect individual flats. Run from the bottom to the top of the building, one or more of the cables in the bundle can branch off at any point and connect in end users’ homes. 
The new wiring, for single and multiple-dwellings, also incorporates a complete indoor fibre solution.
Part of the challenge for FTTH is the diverse range of environments presented by the diversity of buildings’ infrastructure. In existing structures FTTH wiring is very often installed as the third network infrastructure in a building where, in the past, twisted pair copper and coax cabling would have been installed.

Tratos Powers Twickenham Stadium for Rugby World Cup Print E-mail

Tratos WorldCupTwickenham Stadium

Anglo/Italian cabling company Tratos will facilitate power for the Rugby World Cup at Twickenham, applying its subsea cabling technology to combat the challenges of the stadium’s high water table.
The company, which manufactures in the UK and Italy, and has offices around the world, was approached earlier this year by project consultants ME Ltd, because of the particularly difficult nature of the environment. Cable would have to maintain its integrity despite constant immersion; and time would be critical. The Rugby World Cup started this month (September) and the stadium couldn’t afford the risk of power outage. That left an eight-week turnaround for Tratos.
