- Corning Continues to be a Gold Sponsor at the Sixth Edition of
the Annual FTTH Council Europe Conference
COPENHAGEN, February 4 /PRNewswire/ --
Corning Cable Systems GmbH & Co KG, part of Corning
Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, will present
its Ascend(TM) Multi Dwelling Unit (MDU) System at the
Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council Europe Conference 2009 on Feb.
11-12, at the Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Corning Cable Systems will demonstrate leadership in MDU
deployments by displaying its Ascend(TM) MDU System on the Corning
interactive exhibit (stand G10). Visitors will be able to speak with
Corning Cable System's technical experts to learn first-hand how
this innovative Evolant(R) product solution can expand opportunities
for work and leisure to individuals, businesses, and communities.
Corning Cable Systems' Ascend(TM) MDU System enables fibre optic
networks to be installed quickly and cost effectively into
challenging high-rise apartment buildings and MDUs, which are one of
the major residential architectures in Europe.
The exhibit will also include the Corning Cable Systems
OptiRise(TM) Cable Assembly, which is designed to meet the
requirements of MDUs where fast riser installation and customer
connection are paramount.
"The OptiRise(TM) Cable Assembly is an ideal solution for indoor
fibre deployment," said Dr Thomas Knuth, FTTH system and product
portfolio manager, Corning Cable Systems, EMEA. "Our product allows
fibres to be broken out at floor level without the need to access the
cable jacket. The benefits of this innovative approach enable
considerable advantages in the speed of deployment, while
significantly decreasing the number of skilled installers needed to
complete an installation successfully. In combination with Corning's
ClearCurve(TM) fibre, this system combines the advantages of a 'plug
& play' approach with excellent cable bend performance."
With its sophisticated Ascend(TM) MDU system, Corning continues
to reinforce its commitment to providing innovative fibre-optic
solutions to the industry and closing the digital divide in Europe.
