Enabling high-speed connections with cable and fiber optic solutions
Living in a world that demands faster information transmission every day requires top-performing solutions to make it happen. 5G deployment is accelerating globally and promises to deliver another step-change in performance expectations. Transmission materials need to withstand the challenges of being housed in cramped spaces, bending and harsh environments, and optimal durability is required to reduce waste. New materials are desired to meet the evolving needs for 5G infrastructure and new 5G-enabled applications.
For almost 70 years, Dow has been refining solutions for copper, coaxial and fiber optic cable applications to help you deliver faster, more reliable communications to customers. And now with the advancement of 5G, Dow is collaborating with infrastructure, device, and application owners to develop next generation materials and help realize the potential of 5G technology.
Quality materials enable improved information transmission needed in today’s digital world. Our family of insulation and jacketing compounds – including foam insulations – can be used in copper cables, coaxial cables and fiber optic cables. With our materials, you can expect:
