Spotlight on innovation
Much has changed in Nexans’ wire and cable business history in North America over the last 120 years but the fundamentals remain the same – continual product innovation, a focus on our customers, operational excellence and outstanding people.
As the world’s population and economy continue to grow, the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts we will need 48% more energy in 20 years than we use today.
Nexans Data Center Solutions is building a hyper-connected world powered by its hyperscale data center products and services, which harnesses massive computing power that analyses and processes the vast stream of data generated by billions of connected devices.
The US$1.3 billion Maritime Link Project will transport clean, renewable and reliable electricity from Newfoundland and Labrador to Nova Scotia and other energy markets in Canada and the Northeastern United States.
Did you know that, in two years, there will be 3.2 times more networked devices than there are people in the world?
THE INPI (National Institute of the Intellectual property - France) has just published its list of the top French companies having the most patents published in 2010. At Nexans, we are very proud to be in the top 50 applicants (#35 specifically).
We help our customers meet their commitments by adding value to the installation process.
This unit is more than an automative sensor; it protects and stabilizes itself against malfunction.
Sometimes, a technical innovation gives rise to unforeseen benefits.
The use of bio-based materials will allow us to reduce our dependence on oil.
This Nexans-organized conference showcases Nexans as a prime mover for superconductivity in Europe.
This really is an intelligent cable - it tells us during operation if everything is OK.
One innovation drives another. After developing copper/fiber cable for CCTV, we pushed back the boundaries of PoE.
Convenient packaging adds value to our products by generating important savings for installers.
Offshore technologies help fish farm operators upgrade operations and enhance their ecological image.
Breakthroughs are often accomplished by combining technological assets with industrial tools on an international scale.
Innovation is often cooperative and synergistic, with the final result more than what each partner could have separately achieved.
Intelligently packaging micro-cables is an art in itself, and something that busy installers have come to expect.
The weakest link in the chain or cable is a place to start innovating. Fix that vulnerable point and you add value.
Safety should be our first objective; obtaining certification can help us develop new products for our customers.
The green concerns of our customers often stimulate us to use proven knowhow to develop new solutions.
When our clients decide to raise the bar on cable specifications, tough testing can lead to new breakthroughs.
Innovations often breed new innovations. What we learned with fluorescent cables inspired us to create a new reflective mining cable.
You don’t need a brand-new product to do innovative marketing; you just need a customized marketing approach.
Rather than being perceived as a threat, a new competitive technology should be seen as an opportunity to do it better.
When your customer starts thinking big, you have to start thinking big, too, especially in terms of innovation.
Time-proven wiring products can often be given new life by rethinking how they can be assembled and packaged.
A customer complaint, rather than being disruptive, often serves as a springboard for achieving a safer, better product.
Field installation cable is more than just a product; it’s a service designed to protect our customer’s precious network assets.
Environmental concerns inspired us to bridge electrical insulation and chemical protection, developing a unique new pump cable.
Hopefully, INFIT™ technology will one day be as familiar in the cable world, as INTEL® is in computing.
INFIT is a leapfrog technology which allows most plants to produce superior fire-performance cables using traditional extrusion techniques.
Meeting customer demand for a cable that could glow in the dark required perseverance and intuition.
‘Smaller is better’ has often driven innovation . Fumay and NCS combined their expertise to offer a unique high-performance cable for an expanding market.
Thermal modeling makes it possible to adapt an entire cable system to a specific environment.
Nano cables are opening up new markets in developing countries and non-destructive testing.
Customer requests for faster, easier installation, is leading us to push ribbon technology to its limits.
Nexans production units and the NRC have proven their ability to conquer the challenges of distance, language and cultural barriers to develop exciting new shipbuilding products.
By looking for gaps in existing patents, we discovered some neglected solutions.
Transitional technologies, like hybrid vehicles, demand transitional thinking.
This innovation not only eliminated power losses which were cutting into utility profits, it created a model for social and environmental responsibility which is spreading to other developing countries.
A durable, high-performance connection between photovoltaic panels and the “inverter”.
A simple, self-contained robotic camera which rapidly scans joints, foreign matter and water within tubes.
