Based on AT&T’s long-term commitment to its network buildout, Corning said is investing $150 million in optical cable manufacturing in North Carolina, initially adding 200 jobs.
Specialty Optical Fibers Play an Increasingly Important Role
Specialty optical fibers are typically used in much shorter lengths than their telecom counterparts, averaging anywhere from a few centimeters to just a few meters in distance per application. These fibers are designed to be application specific, and can condition and amplify light in a way that traditional telecom optical fiber can’t, providing a necessary service so that networks can offer faster and more reliable connections.
Reduce Data Center Power Consumption While Expanding Bandwidth and Fiber Density with Corning’s Fiber-to-the-Chip Connectivity Solution | Corning
As their capacity increases, data centers are running into a major problem: keeping energy costs under control. Corning’s fiber-to-the-chip connectivity solution helps reduce data center power consumption while expanding bandwidth and fiber density.
How Fiber-Deep Network Solutions and 5G Can Help the Hospitality Industry Recover Post-COVID | The Signal Network Blog by Corning
Few industries were hit harder by the pandemic than hospitality.Even with the expected economic boom due to pent u p travel demand, the industry will take years to fully recover. But it’s also an opportunity for hospitality to build back better. Simultaneous with the industry’s recovery will be the widespread rollout of fiber-deep and data rich networks like 5G and WIFI6. These networks can support technologies that help hotel guests feel safer post-pandemic, and enable the industry to lay the groundwork for other high-tech services in the future.
Fiber is the NOW: Keeping up with Optical Fiber
As internet traffic, connected devices, and cloud-based services proliferate, there is a corresponding increase in the deployment of optical fiber. This article highlights the key market segments and technology enablers driving demand and then discusses the ways that optical fiber technology is being deployed to meet the demands for higher bandwidth, low latency networks.
Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) 101| WDM Technology in Optical Fiber Communication
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) carries great potential to help network operators stay ahead of growing demands for bandwidth. As we continue to split the light into more and more wavelengths, the potential capacity of just a single fiber strand grows dramatically.
