19 Jun 2020

Draka, a brand of Prysmian Group – the world’s market leader in power and telecommunications cables and systems – is pleased to recognise NG Bailey’s IT Services business as a Technology Partner. This partnership will strengthen the collaboration between the two companies on future product application and development.

NG Bailey, the UK's leading independent engineering and services business, has been a Draka UC Connect Installation Partner for eight years. As an Installation Partner, it is authorised to sell and install the Draka UC Connect structured wiring solution. With NG Bailey IT Services having significant field experience, including working in close collaboration with a major telecom provider on initial trials in rolling out fibre into Multi Dwelling Units (MDUs), Draka has provided the company with access to its engineering teams as an authorised Technology Partner. This will allow for greater collaboration between the two companies at a technical level.

The announcement was made as part of a visit by NG Bailey IT Services’ Managing Director, Kelly Tedesco, to Prysmian’s Bishopstoke manufacturing facility. Llyr Roberts, Global VP of Draka Multi Media Solutions, provided a tour of the extensive site, focussing on Prysmian Group’s range of fibre cables – including SiroccoXS blown fibre and high fibre count cables - and Prysmian’s rapidly growing optical connectivity capability. Over one million kilometres of fibre cable are manufactured annually at Prysmian Bishopstoke. An exclusive preview of the future development of ribbon fibre products was also provided.

Kelly Tedesco commented, “This is an exciting development of our working relationship. The MDU marketplace is a key strategic growth area for NG Bailey and having visited Prysmian’s Bishopstoke manufacturing facility I am looking forward to seeing how together we can bring innovation to our customers.”

Commenting on the visit and the announcement that NG Bailey is a recognised Draka Technology Partner, Llyr said: “With the continued growth of 5G and IoT, we are making a significant investment in the Draka UC Connect solution in the UK. Our success will be built on strategic relationships with key partners. NG Bailey IT Services represent a key partner for Draka in this regard and brings valuable field experience to our ongoing product development. We look forward to strengthening our technical collaboration going forwards.”

Draka’s UC Connect system is built around the company’s UK and European manufactured copper and optical data cabling product set and is fully supported by a 25 year Applications Assurance Warranty supported by Prysmian Group.
