Ultra High Fibre Count Ribbon Fibre Optic was developed to meet today’s demand for the highest bandwidth capacity in fibre optic cable installation. Ribbon fibre provides industry leading density providing much higher fibre count in approximately the same footprint of existing central tube and stranded tube design cables. Ribbon fibre is especially suited for Data Centre Interconnect applications and other emerging network needs such as 5G where high fibre availability is critical.

Many of today’s cables with high fibre count involve sub-units of 12 fibres. Splicing those fibres individually is very time consuming, mass fusion splicers splice entire ribbons simultaneously. Phoenix utilise Fujikura 70R+ and Sumitomo T-71M12 Ribbon Fusion Splicers to drastically reduce the amount of labour time spent on splicing by up to 75%.

The Adecco Group, based in Zurich, Switzerland, with more than 33,000 employees and around 5,100 branches in over 60 countries and territories, is the largest temporary staffing company in the world. The Adecco Group require a new European Data Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and a Disaster Recovery Co-located Data Centre in Düsseldorf, Germany. The client company, a multinational IT Services provider engage Phoenix to develop a comprehensive design and install a Data Cabling solution based around the very latest Cat6 technology and OM3 Fibre Optic 10Gbs solution within each of the new Data Centres.

THE PORT OF FELIXSTOWE has taken delivery of its first remote control ship-to-shore gantry cranes.

The two new cranes, the 32nd and 33rd at the UK’s largest container port, were delivered on the heavy load vessel Zhen Hua 23 from Shanghai where they were built by port machinery specialist ZPMC. The new cranes are capable of working vessels with containers stowed up to 11-high and 24-wide on deck but, instead of being in a cab 50 metres above the quay, the “drivers” will be located in a nearby operations centre. Phoenix engaged by Felixstowe Port to design and install a solution to connect the new cranes to the Felixstowe Port Fibre Optic Infrastructure.
