Corning Optical Communications LLC, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, will highlight its flexible fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and wireless deployment solutions through exhibits and hands-on demonstrations at the OSP EXPO®, Sept. 12-14 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
In its environmental exhibit (booth #900), Corning will feature its latest solutions designed for use in outside plant fiber access networks, including FTTH and fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) applications. Customers will get first-hand experience with Corning’s flexible FTTH deployment solution sets, beginning in the central office and progressing to three preconnectorized methods of reaching the subscriber premises: Distributed Split, Local Convergence, and Branch/Star Topology. Each solution set includes interoperable components that maximize cost efficiency in network designs.
The exhibit also includes a section dedicated to Corning’s wireless solutions. Evolant® Solutions for Wireless Networks fit into customers’ network deployments and enable service providers to easily install and upgrade wireless networks. Today’s wireless operators face ongoing challenges to supply the coverage and capacity that their customers want, especially for data. This means deployment of 3G and 4G solutions, often in crowded tower and rooftop environments. Corning’s Evolant Solutions for Wireless Networks leverage field-proven solutions to make FTTA deployment a fast plug-and-play operation that can save time and money.
The wireless solution features unique products to support its technology, such as the OptiSheath® MF2 MultiPort Terminal, Remote Radio Fiber Optic Cable Assembly, Remote Radio Distribution Terminal, Cell Site Drop Assembly, and the Wireless Consolidation Terminal.
The exhibit will include demonstrations of Corning’s OptiSnap® Connector and two new tools that make designing central office and outside plant networks quick and easy. Corning will also display a 46-inch LCD touch-screen television. By simply touching an image, visitors can access detailed information about the products and solutions on display.
In addition to these activities, Corning will participate in several events at the conference:
- On Tues., Sept. 13, from 8 to 9 a.m., Corning’s Mark Conner, market development manager, will present “Wireless Isn't Wireless - It Needs Fiber,” on behalf of the Fiber Optic Association.
- On Wed., Sept. 14, from 8 to 9 a.m., Conner will also present “Fiber-to-the-Antenna (FTTA) Case Study: Terminal Solutions for Remote Radio Head (RRH) Deployments.”
