Building upon the rapid adoption of XpressPrep coaxial drop cable, CommScope has expanded the offering to include Brightwire, the industry recognized benchmark for dry anti-corrosion protection.

CommScope Brightwire XP brings together two of the most popular features in coaxial drop cable. Combining the superior dry anti-corrosion features of Brightwire® with the innovative XpressPrep™ technology, Brightwire XP provides double-barreled benefits to customer installations of drop cable by offering lower initial and long-term operational costs.

“By combining two successful, field-proven technologies into one product, CommScope is offering customers a higher level of reliability and installation time savings,” said Ric Johnsen, senior vice president, Broadband, CommScope. “With the success and great response we are receiving from XpressPrep customers, we are pleased that Brightwire dry anti-corrosion technology can now be offered to even further enhance our line of XpressPrep cables. Brightwire XP is a combination of two great technologies offering our customers a true drop cable solution.”

CommScope manufactures the world’s most widely-deployed 75 ohm drop cable, available in a full array of shielding configurations. These products provide high-quality signal transmission, fast and easy installation, and have a record of dependable service and quality in virtually every part of the world. The availability of Brightwire dry anti-corrosive treatment further protects the integrity of the broadband drop plant while lowering operation and installation costs.

Since its introduction, CommScope’s XpressPrep cable has seen rapid, wide-scale adoption by major cable MSOs. By reducing the number of steps required to prepare a tri-shield cable for connectorization, XpressPrep can significantly reduce the time normally required for cable end preparation and improves system reliability by increasing the chances of proper connectorization.

Brightwire XP and XpressPrep both meet and exceed all applicable SCTE specifications assuring customers a high performing product and full compatibility with industry standard tri-shield connectors.

“We are excited about our customers’ widespread acceptance of the XpressPrep cable product and proud to expand the line to include our legendary Brightwire technology, enabling customers to realize the benefits associated with both of these innovative technologies,” said Johnsen.
