Pirelli Telecom Cables and Systems, Milan, Italy, is set to begin full-scale production of its Air Bag cable, a dielectric fiber optic cable with improved resistance to crush and impact. Pilot implementation of the cable in Europe is expected within the next few months.

According to a Pirelli press release, the cable uses an optical fiber core, filling compounds with high mechanical resistance, dielectric rodent protection, and flame-retardant inner and outer layers that act as a shock absorber and allow the cable to recover its shape after crushing or impact.

The cable is compatible with existing cabling networks and traditional accessories.
