Milan, February 18, 2003.Pirelli Telecom Cables & Systems has established an agreement with Panduit Ltd. to include its Sirocco Blown Fiber System in their structured cabling solutions.Italy will be the first market to benefit from the introduction of the system when it is officially launched at "Cabling" in Milan on 25 - 26 February 2003.

The Sirocco blown fiber system is a flexible fiber-delivery solution that allows much of the cost of fiber to be deferred (avoiding dark "just-in-case" fiber), while ensuring the potential for migration from copper to fiber (composite designs) or from standard to enhanced fibers for higher capacity systems (multimode, isnglemode, OM3 and FineLight).

The solution is ideal in areas such as finance and education where flexibility and future network expansion are essential. Optical fiber units of 2, 4, 8 or 12 fibers can be blown into tubing with 1, 2, 4, 7, 12, 19 or 24 sub-units. There is a full range of Blown Fiber tubing (indoor, duct and direct burial options), accessories (plug-in connectors) and fiber management products. The Sirocco system includes the blowing equipment and training of staff to install the products and provide an end to end solution.

Commenting on the joint venture, Panduit's VP of Business Development, Steve Luczkiw, said, "Pirelli's SiroccoÒ system components perfectly complement Panduit's copper and fiber range. Blown fiber gives our customers the opportunity to meet today's requirements cost effectively while providing a clear upgrade path for any future needs."

Sirocco infrastructure products, which all fulfill conditions of the British Telecom Licence (made exclusively under licence from BT), together with Panduit's range of patch panels, fiber outlets, patchcords and pigtails, provide an unparalleled solution and customers can take extra confidence in Panduit's 25-year warranty program, "Certification Plus".

The first installation of the Sirocco system in Panduit's structured cabling solution is planned for the first quarter of 2003 in Pirelli's home country of Italy. "Both Pirelli and Panduit consider that Italy presents a unique opportunity for the introduction of the Sirocco system in a premise application" said Luczkiw. "This will take us into further joint projects around the world".

"The product range has been used extensively in access environments for many years. Now we are beginning to see real opportunities in premise networks as customers need more and more bandwidth but are unsure about how to judge future demand" explains Andy Harbidge, Pirelli's market manager for the Sirocco system. "Sirocco gives them the opportunity to adapt to an uncertain future with a flexible system that can be extended, modified and upgraded with ease"
