Corning’s optical solutions keep communication flowing for consumers and businesses who want fast, reliable connection to the world anywhere, anytime. Because of our optical communications technologies, people have greater access to video, voice, and information than ever before. But it’s not enough. Consumers want to exchange data in the blink of an eye, and the demand for bandwidth is skyrocketing as network usage doubles every few years. Corning is responding with innovations for fiber to the home, wireless technology, and hyper-scale data centers—all making slow speeds and dropped calls a thing of the past.
To deliver more bandwidth directly to buildings, providers have turned to Corning’s fiber-to-the-home solutions for millions of homes. We’ve introduced technologies such as compact cabinets and micro-cables for crowded environments, which bring you more bandwidth and improve customer costs by speeding up installations.
In wireless, denser 4G and new 5G networks are driving a need for two orders of magnitude more fiber and connectivity compared to legacy networks. That has sparked Corning innovations, such as a multiuse platform that makes speedy deployments easier. We have also converged multiple solutions with the Corning® ONETM wireless platform, making it possible to text, tweet, and call at the same time, even in a football stadium. This powerful solution can handle 100,000 photos uploaded to social media every second.
The data centers of tomorrow also rely on our fiber optic cabling solutions, and we’re developing glass technologies that make all-optical inside switches, routers, and servers a reality.
