Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) will showcase its solutions to support migration to fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks at ANGA COM 2016, June 7-9, in Cologne, Germany.

Corning’s end-to-end solutions, from the headend to the subscriber premise, enable forward-looking multiple-system operators (MSOs) to migrate seamlessly from hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) to FTTH networks.

Visitors to Corning’s booth #K31 in Hall 10.2 can speak with Corning experts and have hands-on experience with specific products that enable the transition to FTTH networks. Corning’s FTTH solutions combine the company’s expertise in optical physics and ceramic science and leverage its vapor deposition and precision forming platforms.

“The case for fiber-deep deployments is clear, but for MSOs with decades of experience with HFC networks, the shift can be daunting. In our booth at ANGA COM, we will demonstrate that fiber, in addition to delivering more bandwidth over a longer lifespan versus copper, is very easy to install,” said Jeremy Stubbs, sales director, Corning Optical Communications. “And for MSOs that want future-ready networks, working with our industry-leading experts is a good place to start.”

In addition, Corning experts will speak in technical forums about the short- and long-term benefits of optical fiber in access networks. Presentations include

  • Speakers’ Corner, 4 - 4:20 p.m. June 7
    • Presenter: Vanesa Diaz, market development EMEA, Carrier Networks
    • Topic: Optimizing Evolution: From HFC to FTTH Networks
    • Location: Hall 10.1
  • FTTx Stepping into the Gigabit Society, 11:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. June 9
    • Presenter: Manuel Silva, market development EMEA, Carrier Networks
    • Topic: Fiber Innovations to Reduce Installation Costs
    • Location: Room B, Congress Center East

“Through our experts’ presentations and the highly-effective solutions we’re demonstrating for driving fiber deeper into the network, we’re showing MSOs that, even if their business models can’t support FTTH deployment today, what they can do now is put a smart migration path in place,” said Kristin Schombel, marketing manager, Corning Optical Communications. “We have the expertise and experience to make that migration less challenging.”
