Corning and Zhone to Deliver Enterprise-Ready, All-Fiber Networks

  • Corning
  • Zhone Technologies
New York, NY and Corning, NY — Corning, a provider of optical fiber, and Zhone Technologies, a provider of fiber access transformation, announced a non-exclusive agreement to co-market an all-fiber network solution capable of deploying passive optical local area network (POL) and cellular distributed antenna systems (DAS) on a common infrastructure - Corning's ONETM Wireless Platform. The result will be quicker installation, a smaller equipment footprint, and lower cost for enterprise companies.

"To meet today's surging bandwidth demands, converged networks are becoming a necessity," said James Norrod, president and CEO, Zhone Technologies. "Zhone's alliance with Corning will enable enterprise customers to have faster, more reliable service on a unified network that is easy to implement and will optimize the network infrastructure."

Electronics and Passive Fiber Optic Components in a Converged Solution
In the past, companies needed to use solutions from multiple vendors to build separate information technology and cellular networks. Leveraging Zhone's innovative POL solution, FiberLAN, and Corning's ONE Wireless Platform, customers can now deploy an integrated fiber network solution that includes both the electronics and passive fiber optic components in one converged solution.

"This agreement capitalizes on Corning's expertise in optical connectivity and wireless design, and Zhone's enterprise-ready fiber access solutions," added Stuart Hoiness, senior vice president of enterprise markets for Corning Optical Communications. "We're bringing together two leading providers of fiber-based solutions to deliver robust bandwidth to the edge of the network, giving customers greater flexibility, more scalability, and freedom from costly 'rip and replace' upgrades in the future."
