Electrical wires provide the critical infrastructure that keep our economies powered, with SWCC delivering the latest cabling technologies to meet the needs of our times.
Worldwide, data centers are a critical enabler of the global digital revolution. However, a common challenge for these vital digital hubs is that as processing speeds of servers and network switches evolve, they have to be replaced every few years. For this reason, optical fiber cables are today being installed in massive quantities thanks to their ability to enable optical transmission technology for several generations to come.
“One such product that can help in that respect is our Rollable Ribbon (e-Ribbon®) which enables high-capacity communication and efficient installation,” says Takayo Hasegawa, Chairwoman and CEO of SWCC Showa Holdings Ltd, the Nikkei Asia-listed manufacturer of electric wires and cables.
Given that optical fibers are critical to telecommunications performance, they must be small in diameter, lightweight, yet as dense as possible. e-Ribbon® meets these demands and is attracting a great deal of attention globally due to its ability to accommodate a large number of fiber-optic installations.
“Hyperscale data centers with high processing power and enormous storage will be the norm in years to come and like any other business, they will be subject to stiff price competition and thus there will be a need to reduce operating costs,” explains Dr. Hasegawa. “e-Ribbon® allows for more optical fibers to be installed in a fast and efficient manner, all while reducing construction costs.”
Through its innovative technology and focus on R&D, SWCC is not just well placed to meet the challenges of the global telecommunications industry, but also the great transformation underway in the automotive sector with the transition to electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing. The company’s MiDIP
