Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) will highlight its innovative Evolant® Outside Plant (OSP) and Multi-dwelling Unit (MDU) Solutions through exhibits and hands-on demonstrations at the 2011 FTTH Council Europe Conference in Milan, Feb. 8-10.
In its exhibit (booth #G03), Corning will display a variety of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) solutions for OSP and MDU deployments, from the central office to individual units. By incorporating Corning’s bend-insensitive ClearCurve® single-mode fibre, Corning’s solutions meet the rigorous installation challenges of existing structures and allow fast, easy MDU deployments. For the OSP, there will be pre-connectorised and conventional splice solutions.
Visitors will also be able to see demonstrations of the field-installable OptiSnap® Connector, which eliminates the need for field polishing, increases the quality of the termination and greatly reduces connector installation time.
In addition to the exhibit, Corning will be participating in the following activities:
- On Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 16:45, Dr. Thomas Knuth, global program manager, MDU for Corning Optical Communications, will present “MDU Fibre Cabling Choices: An Ongoing Challenge,” at the Complementary and Convergent In-Building Networks Workshop.
- On Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 11:00, Chris Holden, president of the FTTH Council Europe, will provide an opening speech.
- On Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 14:30, Corning Optical Communications’ Johann-Peter Hegemann, vice president, EMEA commercial operations, carrier networks, and Klaus Kammermeier, director, carrier marketing, global, will present “Corning Experience with Different Examples of FTTH Rollout, Why They Were Chosen by the Operators and the Operator Benefits.”
Corning optical fibre experts will also be on the stand to answer any questions and explain why bend and loss matter in FTTH deployments.
