Do understand what #5G actually is? Watch this on-demand discussion between two members of Corning’s Advanced Technology Team, Art King and Shirish Nagaraj, as they dig deeper into 5G, its capabilities, and what they think it will take to get us there!
Corning’s FREEDM™ B2 Gel-free Loose Tube Steel Armour Double Jacket Indoor/Outdoor cable family, was developed to provide the backbone for optical cabling infrastructure in railway tunnels. The cable complies with revised, stricter EU guidelines for low flammability, low fire spread, low toxicity and low smoke density.
Manufacturing plants and operations are each unique in their own way. In this article, we will discuss many of the communications opportunities that can equip new and existing buildings with more agile, resilient, and intelligent digital infrastructure. Manufacturing system architects are leveraging wired, wireless, and optical transport supporting robots, machine vision, production line machines, product transport, sensor arrays, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and distributed Internet of Things (with future artificial intelligence management overlays) to increase process intelligence, agility, safety, and reduce defects and operational expenses.
To help network operators stay ahead of bandwidth needs driven by 5G, AI and hyperscale data centers, Corning has announced a series of smaller, denser additions to its portfolio of long-haul fiber and cable innovations, including the world’s first smaller-form-factor submarine and terrestrial long-haul fibers in a 200-micron diameter.
Are you up to speed on #5G? Join Art King & Shirish Nagaraj from Corning’s Advanced Technology team on Thurs., March 19 at 11:15 a.m. EST as they dig deeper into 5G, its capabilities, & what it will take to get us there.
Infinera and Corning demonstrated 800G single wavelength transmission with Infinera’s sixth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE6) technology across 800 km on Corning’s TXF® optical fiber. This record-breaking achievement was accomplished using Corning’s state-of-the-art TXF fiber, an ITU-T G.654.E compliant, ultra-low-loss, silica-core fiber with large effective area and the advanced features of Infinera’s vertically integrated ICE6 technology.
2020 marks the 50th anniversary of low-loss #optical #fiber, which revolutionized #communications. Read about how once the promise of glass for communications had been realized, specialists in glass science took on the task of making that promise a reality.
Corning® CleanAdvantage™ technology uses a new factory cleaning and sealing process to ensure a pristine end face upon first use for all our EDGE™ and EDGE8® solutions. Thus, saving you as the installer time and money during the initial installation. So go ahead and uncap that CleanAdvantage connector so that you can connect with confidence.
It’s challenging to make the right decision on passive infrastructure deployment in the presence of incomplete information on future transmission technologies and future network architectures. One tactic to deploy hybrid cables to account for potential disruptions that next-generation transmission technologies may bring. A hybrid optical fiber cable is one that features two or more different fiber types within the same physical construction to provide greater flexibility for the network operator.
The higher the fiber count of the cable, the more vulnerable the connectors and end faces are to contamination. All connectors are inherently dirty because of the moving parts like springs, connectors, and latches, all of which generate wear debris. Therefore, to get absolute reliability and uninterrupted service from any UHCF network it is important that all connectors are cleaned and inspected to meet IEC 61300-3-35 standards prior to installation. This helps avoid potential fiber network problems such as insertion loss (weakened signal), back-reflection (signal is diverted back to its source) or a complete system shut down.
