Prysmian Group North America has announced a new addition to its extensive ezMicroduct™ product family. This latest addition allows 432 fibers and optional tone wires to be placed into a 14mm inside diameter microduct.

A key enabler of this new product is 200 micron fiber Bend Insensitive Fiber. Remarkably, the glass in this fiber is identical to the same type of 250 micron fiber. This permits it to be seamlessly spliced to legacy fibers using standard splice equipment.
