JANUARY 22, 2008 -- PorchLight Communications, a fiber-optic network service provider installing ultra-high-speed convergent communications and entertainment networks in single-family and multi-family residential neighborhoods, has selected Corning Cable Systems' (search for Corning Cable Systems) Evolant Solutions products for its fiber-to-the-home (search for FTTH) deployments throughout the United States.
The Evolant portfolio for FTTH includes a range of optical fiber, cable, hardwar,e and equipment designed to make deployments faster, easier, more reliable, and less costly, say Corning representatives.
PorchLight will build on the Corning Cable Systems FTTH offering to deliver its"quad-play" package to PorchLight communities.
"After evaluating a variety of products for our FTTH network, we felt Corning offered a complete and reliable solution," reports Corey Smith, chief technology officer at PorchLight. "With Corning's leadership and expertise in FTTH network solutions, PorchLight will be better able to serve our customers."
Corning Cable Systems also introduced PorchLight as the newest member of the Corning Connected Community Program, which will benefit both parties as they continue to bring the life-enhancing benefits of FTTH to developers and homeowners.
Corning Cable Systems says it developed the Corning Connected Community Program to assist homebuilders and community developers in implementing fiber-optic infrastructures into their building plans and to help home buyers learn how FTTH networks can enhance their living experience. Corning provides Corning Connected Community Program members with marketing materials to help educate consumers on the benefits of FTTH.
