MILAN -- Pirelli is ready for the market launch of its new products – systems, modules and components based on the advanced research of Pirelli Labs - for optical networking and broadband access by the end of the year. These products, along with Pirelli’s latest models of optic fibers, will be presented at ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communication), taking place in Stockholm, Sweden, from September 5th to 9th. Pirelli will be at ECOC for the second consecutive year with its own stand 417.

With a full range of vertically integrated products, Pirelli is a world leader in optical networking, and is going to play a decisive role in the future of telecommunications. Pirelli pioneered photonics and drove the evolution of Optical Communications in early 90s, with the first EDFA developed and the first DWDM systems installed in operator’s live networks.

“Over the last year, our products have received a very positive feedback by prospective customers. In particular, the broadband access solutions developed by Pirelli are being adopted by some of the most important telecommunication players in Europe. Our products support companies to pursue their economic targets: optimizing investments, speeding up time to revenue and increasing profitability”, says Mauro Sacchetto, CEO of Pirelli Telecom Systems.

“The consent towards our first products confirms the excellence of Pirelli Labs. We have been able to introduce the first solutions just 18 months after Labs were established. Now we want to look further: our research staff is working continuously to develop new products and solutions, confirming Pirelli’s role of pioneer in the Optical Communications”, adds Giorgio Grasso, CEO of Pirelli Labs.
