Hardened Connectors | OptiTap and OptiTip Connectors | Corning

Reliability at the Core

Reliability at the Core

Forming the connections that can make or break a network, the reliability and performance of hardened connectors are crucial. Since the early deployments of FTTH networks almost 20 years ago, we have helped connect more than 35 million homes using our hardened connector technology. For proof of the product’s dependability and longevity, look no further than the millions of satisfied consumers.

Ensuring the reliability of our hardened connector offering starts in the factory. We have dedicated more than 100,000 hours to testing our preconnectorised solutions, and our hardened connectors pass, and often exceed, the rigorous Telcordia outside plant reliability protocols Telcordia GR-3120-CORE (for single-fibre OptiTap® connectors) and GR-3152-CORE (for multifibre OptiTip® connectors).

The testing procedures we developed during the infancy of FTTH have become standard in today’s mass deployments. Learn more about our hardened connectors.
