Corning Debuts Robust Fiber, Access Solution2/24/2004 6:18 AM Eastern
Corning Inc. introduced two new networking products Tuesday.
The company said its "NexCor" optical fiber with "MaxPower" technology is a new standard single-mode fiber that handles twice the launch power of other ITU-T G.652 fibers, addressing a key technical barrier facing converged voice, video and data services networks (also known as "triple-play" networks).
And its pre-terminated access solution -- part of its "Evolant" solutions for access networks -- offers features products designed for the drop portion of the fiber network, from the network-access point to the network-interface device at the customer premises.
The products eliminate the need to enter terminals or NIDs when connecting subscribers, which allows carriers to add subscribers quickly when they sign up for new services.
