Corning Optical Communications LLC, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, will highlight innovation in data centre and local area network (LAN) solutions at DatacenterDynamics Converged, Nov. 14-15, in London.
Corning Optical Communications’ exhibit will showcase a variety of optical fibre cabling solutions for enterprise applications, particularly Pretium EDGE® Solutions. Enabled by Corning® ClearCurve® bend-insensitive OM3 and OM4 multimode fibres, Pretium EDGE Solutions allow for up to 35 percent faster deployment; up to 25 percent faster moves, adds and changes; and up to 100 percent more density than traditional preterminated solutions.
Visitors to the exhibit can participate in a hands-on demonstration of Corning’s new FREEDM™ Dry MPC Cable. Field-proven over five years of deployments in North America, this indoor/outdoor cable replaces gel with a waterblocking yarn, coupled with an enhanced kink-free buffer tube design. The design surpasses the IEC 60794-1-F5 standard for waterblocking, cosseting the fibre with improved protection to wear and tear, while allowing speedy, accurate and reliable installation and splicing.
Customer-driven improvements to Corning’s Closet Connector Housings (CCHs) will also be featured in the exhibit. More than two dozen features built into the new CCH design – including fibre and cable routing, strain relief, port labeling, and termination - help users work more quickly, while reducing the risk of error that can disrupt networks.
The housings are available in sizes ranging from one rack unit (1U) to four rack units (4Us).
The exhibit will also include hands-on demonstrations of the following Corning products:
• UniCam® Connectors, which offer an industry-leading optical performance in a fast, easy field-terminated solution
• Cables with Corning® ClearCurve® multimode fibre, which offer ultra-bendable performance and a minimum bend radius as small as five times the outer diameter of the cable in some designs, compared to 10 times in traditional cables
On Thursday, November 15 at 12:10 p.m. in Hall 4, Anthony Robinson, data centre manager, EMEA – Corning Optical Communications, will present “Preparing Your Data Center Infrastructure for 40G and Beyond.”
