Tratos hosts telecom leaders at FTTH conference

Tratos, a global enabler in fibre optic cable, will host the “2017 Metropolitan Cabling and FTTH” Conference to be held in Pieve, Santo Stefano, Italy later this month (25th May).

The Conference, in its 12th year, is one of the most anticipated events in the industry’s calendar and will provide delegates with a strategic overview and technical focus on the latest developments in FTTH and cabling.

Leading members of the National Telecommunication Operators community will present insights in the field of broadband networks and field-proven solutions.

Speakers at this one day event include:

  • Luigi Cudia of Infratel Italia SpA who will present: “Infratel – Fiber to the Building, the public intervention in market failure areas. Current situation and future developments”.
  • Paola Regio of Open Access, who will present: “01/07/2017 CPR (EU) 305/2011 on the eve of the entry into force of the European Legislation, what changes in the TLC market”.
  • Jacopo Giorgetti of Tratos who will present: “CPR (EU) 305/2011 The cables manufacturer point of view”.

Tratos will showcase its FTTH range which includes underground cabling and FTTH networks.

The venue event is, as usual, the birthplace of Tratos, in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy.  Ing. Albano Bragagni, President of Tratos and mayor of Pieve Santo Stefano said: “FTTH is the future.  As a leading producer of fibre optic cable we are pushing to see the last mile of cable turning from copper to fibre now and for FTTH to be available across cities and rural communities alike.

“To this end, we are proud to have signed a deal to guarantee optical fibre supplies for the development of ultra-broadband and FTTH networks across a number of countries. We hope this event will bring together world telecom leaders to discuss strategies that will benefit everyone.”

Growth prospects for Italy’s broadband network have been boosted with investments in FTTH and next-generation technologies (5G). The European Commission’s Digital Agenda 2025 set a goal of 2025 for connections of at least one Gigabit per second.

Increased download speed in Italy is marked out by the Agenda for all schools, libraries, research centres and public administration offices. It includes a goal of uninterrupted 5G coverage in all urban areas for all European households, and connections that offer download speeds of at least 100 Mbps in rural and urban areas (which can be upgraded to Gigabit speeds).

Fibre optic networks are currently the only possible technological solution to achieve these ambitious targets.
