Corning standardizes on ClearCurve for 50-micron multimode fiber

MARCH 17, 2010 -- Corning Inc. (NYSE: GLW) has announced that effective April 1, 2010, ClearCurve multimode optical fiber will become its standard 50-micron multimode fiber product offering.

MARCH 17, 2010 -- Corning Inc. (NYSE: GLW) has announced that effective April 1, 2010, ClearCurve multimode optical fiber will become its standard 50-micron multimode fiber product offering.

Introduced in 2009 (see "Corning announces bend-tolerant multimode fiber"), ClearCurve multimode fiber is the world’s first laser-optimized, high-bandwidth, multimode fiber to withstand bends at 7.5 mm radius with substantially less signal loss than traditional multimode fibers. (For more, see "Bend-insensitive multimode fiber improves enterprise networks.")

“Corning’s 50-micron multimode fiber customers will now benefit from superior bend performance. This will result in faster and more efficient optical cable routing and installation, and significantly higher spare operating margin, at no additional cost,” said Martin J. Curran, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Optical Fiber.

Corning says ClearCurve multimode fiber meets or exceeds the OM2, OM3, and OM4 industry standards for high-bandwidth, laser-optimized multimode fiber. Corning will demonstrate the fiber from March 23-25, 2010, at OFC/NFOEC in San Diego.
