Internet users — consumers and business organizations alike — are sending, receiving, and storing more data than ever before. With network usage doubling every couple of years, worldwide demand for bandwidth is also skyrocketing. That’s putting extra pressure on the edges of networks, closest to where the data is created.
It’s no easy task to create seamless bandwidth capacity across continents or within a complex environment like a hospital, data center, or sports stadium. But as a world leader in this market, Corning provides a powerful combination of optical solutions to meet the very toughest of network demands.
We helped enable the Internet explosion when our scientists developed the world’s first low-loss optical fiber in 1970. Building on the knowledge that optical fiber far surpasses copper in terms of bandwidth capacity — while also being strong, lightweight, and flexible-- we quickly expanded our products and innovations. Fiber-to-the-home, wireless, data center solutions, and consumer products are all part of our innovative portfolio.
Today, we continue to set the standard for the cutting-edge fiber, cable, connectivity, and wireless solutions to keep the world more connected than ever before. Our innovations also help our customers — in healthcare, government, finance, and a host of other industries — take full advantage of emerging phenomena like remote storage, cloud computing, and fiber-to-the-desktop.
