Where Innovation Meets Simplicity: OptiSnap Connectors

For years, the installation of cable network field connectors was a time-consuming process. To ensure the seamless flow of data-forming light, each hair-thin strand of glass fiber had to be glued into a connector. To accomplish this, technicians had to tote along portable ovens to heat-cure a special epoxy.

After waiting for the connector to finish curing, the technician still had to clean and polish the components by hand to ensure a pristine surface required for optical transmission.

On average, it took six to eight minutes to terminate a single connector. Results varied widely, based on the skill and experience of the technician.

But as carriers everywhere began to embrace the fast transmission capabilities of optical networks, Corning engineers were already looking for a better way.
