Corning is responding with market-leading innovations for 5G-ready networks and powerful hyperscale data centers, making slow speeds and dropped calls a thing of the past.
Today, many are preparing for 5G. Corning has been preparing for 5G networks for the last 50 years. Since the invention of optical fiber in 1970 by three Corning scientists, Corning has been on an innovation path to realize the faster and more reliable connectivity that today’s networks require. The future of 5G networks depends on the fiber-optic technology invented by Corning.
Outdoors, the shift from 3G and 4G to the 5G future requires densification – the deployment of more and more optical fiber. Achieving the speed and availability benefits of 5G necessities signals that travel shorter distances than 3G and 4G, putting new demands on the infrastructure. Evolv™ Hardened Connectivity Solutions is a new Corning innovation, extending 5G to more places, such as parks and city centers.
Spanning a broad range of end-to-end fiber optic cable solutions for communication networks, Corning Optical Communications forms the backbone that connects businesses, homes, and people around the globe.
