Solution enables non-intrusive, aesthetically pleasing in-house fiber deployments

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced a new solution designed to enable the deployment of in-home optical networks in a non-intrusive, aesthetically appealing manner. The solution is featured at the European FTTH Conference, Feb. 16-18, in Luxembourg.

The Corning® ClearCurve® Invisible Drop Cable solution is built on a foundation of Corning ClearCurve ultra bend-insensitive fiber. The in-living unit kit comes complete with almost-invisible clips and adhesives that are ideal for installation in high-end homes and apartments. ClearCurve Invisible Drop Cable can be attached to walls or ceilings and bent around corners or moldings while preserving critical loss budgets.

“By using ClearCurve Invisible Drop, the visual impact of in-house cabling is dramatically reduced,” said Tobias Schubert, marketing manager, Corning Optical Communications. “Homeowners and residents are given the option of enjoying the benefits of an optical network without having to see it.”

ClearCurve Invisible Drop features standard G.657 fiber, which is compatible with industry connectors and CPEs and can be spliced or connectorized like standard drop cable. The solution requires little training to deploy and can be installed by a single technician. Minimal wall preparation is needed, making installation fast and easy. The single kit offering reduces design and procurement complexity.
