Sommer Fibre at the IBC …


The IBC in Amsterdam is one of the world’s leading tradeshows for the broadcasting sector. For SOMMER CABLE it was the first IBC participation this year and certainly not the last.

“We were positively surprised at the number of new contacts and also how many returning customers stopped by at our booth for a personal talk“, says Peter Rieck, Key Account & Distribution Manager with SOMMER CABLE.

Keen interest in 4K video and 6G-SDI on all fair days
SOMMER CABLE have already set the course for this direction. With a large portfolio of fibre-optical and copper-based systems the SOMMER CABLE products can meet virtually all requirements in this sector. For instance, there was also a buzzling excitement for systems designed around the OCTOPUS HYBRID 443.



The combination of four OM3 multimode fibres, two signal pairs and one 2.5 mm² power line is really great for multifunctional applications and offers numerous benefits, because every ounce counts, especially with mobile applications.
“To sum things up: we are already looking forward to our participation next year“, adds Rieck as closing word.
