CORNING, N.Y — Corning introduced the latest round of innovations in its award-winning Evolv™ portfolio of network connectivity solutions. The new products will provide network operators with greater flexibility at every stage of fiber deployment, compared to traditional cable deployment methods.

Corning’s new Evolv connectivity solutions will help operators streamline permitting, accelerate field installation, and optimize network testing. Like all products in the Evolv portfolio, the newest solutions give operators an expanded toolkit to deploy ever-expanding fiber networks efficiently – which is vital in a time of accelerating bandwidth demand and public investments in broadband.

The newest Evolv connectivity solutions touch every phase of broadband deployment:

Planning: Corning’s new augmented-reality app, Evolv AR Visualizer, allows operators to show how terminals will be placed prior to a deployment. This capability can help facilitate more efficient permit approvals – particularly in façade environments such as historic districts, where building-owner approval is required.

Field installation: New Evolv terminal options offer additional deployment flexibility. Paintable covers allow operators to install terminals on facades with minimal aesthetic impact. Additionally, the Evolv One-Fiber Pushlok™ Connection Kit lets operators easily connect Pushlok drops, simplifying deployment.

Monitoring and testing: New Evolv terminal-port reflectors can be paired with Optical Network Monitoring technology to enable automated monitoring throughout a network. This allows technicians to easily isolate segments of cable for preventive maintenance and troubleshooting.

“We believe the Optical Communications industry is at the beginning of a large multiyear wave of growth, and we’re continuing to innovate in our Evolv portfolio to support this network expansion,” said Bob Whitman, vice president of market development, Carrier Networks, Corning Optical Communications. “More than ever, network operators are looking to deploy efficiently and cost-effectively, and this latest round of Evolv solutions provides new tools and new capabilities to meet those needs.”

Corning’s compact, easy-to-install Evolv terminals can be deployed in the ground, on a pole or facade, or on a strand. Pushlok Technology enables simple one-handed drop installation, with tactile and audible feedback. The ease of installation and optimized field handling reflect Corning’s knowledge and experience gained from passing 70 million homes worldwide with its hardened connectivity solutions.

Corning experts will highlight the Evolv portfolio, including the newest solutions, in Booth 815 at the ISE Expo, taking place on August 24 and 25 in Denver, Colorado.
