CORNING, NY — Corning Incorporated announced that it is working with Qualcomm Technologies to develop 5G mmWave infrastructure systems for enterprises and public venues. The 5G systems are designed to combine Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G and mmWave technology leadership with Corning’s industry-proven small-cell expertise to deliver affordable and easy-to-install 5G-ready networks indoors.

Delivering 5G–NR Capability over mmWave Spectrum in the Indoor Segment

The Corning systems are expected to be among the first designed to deliver 5G–NR capability over mmWave spectrum in the indoor segment, which includes enterprises such as offices, university campuses, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers, and more. The 5G systems will leverage Corning’s virtualized RAN architecture to manage the attached mmWave small cells.

By utilizing the Qualcomm FSM100xx 5G RAN platform, Corning has access to mmWave capabilities that are designed to facilitate small, powerful and power-efficient mmWave infrastructure for cost-effective and scalable indoor deployments.

The working relationship is expected to enable Corning to implement new functionality around concurrent beamforming, advanced scheduling, and other features necessary to support the unique characteristics of indoor environments. When combined with Corning’s LTE-based Enterprise RAN systems based on the Qualcomm FSM99xx 4G RAN platform, mobile operators are expected to rapidly deploy 5G-NSA services.

Corning hardware is known for its small, elegant, low-power packages, and the goal is for customers to receive the same with this 5G solution, supported by Qualcomm Technologies 4G and 5G RAN offerings. Corning’s current 4G customers are expected to enjoy the benefits of 5G via a simple process that enables 5G-NSA service to their installations.

Details on the commercial availability of Corning’s new enterprise platform will be provided later this year. Visit Corning’s website to learn more about Corning’s in-building network solutions.
