Redefining Home Connectivity

Redefining Home Connectivity

Answering the Customer’s Call

It may not seem like it now, but it wasn’t that long ago that fibre to the home (FTTH) was in its infancy. There were no mass deployments, no customised products, and no recommended or common installation procedures. While Corning had been preparing for FTTH deployments for many years, we hadn’t yet had the opportunity to work with a customer and realize the vision of taking optical fibre all the way to the end customer. That changed when the first major carrier announced their plans for deploy FTTH technology.

With this announcement, we got to work, hand-in-hand with our customer. Our goal was to merge our expertise in fibre optics with the customer’s need for a reliable, future-proofed product that could be deployed rapidly to allow for large-scale FTTH deployments. The result: The FlexNAP™ System, which utilises standard optical fibre cables with network access points pre-installed at customer-specified locations along the length of the cable. With this product, we were able to bring the life-enhancing benefits of optical fibre to the customer, with deployment times several times faster than traditional field installations.

Together with our customer, we developed a product that revolutionised FTTH delivery, and a product that is still an essential element in many FTTH deployments today.
