Trends of global cable industry development. Source: congress of the international cablemakers federation (ICF) in Amsterdam, Netherlands
An account of the regular ICF Congress which was held in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) from September 30 to October 4, 2014 is given.
The Congress focused on the economic situation in Europe and the resulting prospects of future development of energy and telecommunication cables. The main aspects of the Congress focus are the following:
• Improvement of cable and wire quality and anticounterfeiting activities against manufacturers of infringing and counterfeited products; standardization;
• Dealing with economic problems in cable production;
• Performance of work aimed at eliminating damages of cable products during installation;
• Safety assurance work at domestic production facilities;
• Charity activities.

Practical experience of the communication line installation in an industrial building
Practical experience of the communication line installation in an industrial building was investigated. Some new technical solutions enabling to increase the dynamic power range of the communication line are offered. Due to the application of these methods overall optical losses in the communication line were reduced to 1.2 dB.Key words
Fiber-optic communication line; optical loss reduction; optical connector termination.
