Corning Opens Software Innovation Center in Montreal to Develop Telecom Solutions


  • Corning
CORNING, NY — Corning Incorporated opened a research and development center in Montreal, Canada, focused on discovering and developing software solutions for the telecommunications industry. The Corning Technology Center Montreal will serve as Corning's global center of software innovation to support emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, cloud computing, and data analytics, as well as software solutions for optical-wireless networks. Software engineers from Corning’s Research, Development and Engineering organization will collaborate with developers from iBwave Solutions, the Montreal-based provider of networking software solutions that Corning acquired in 2015.

The Montreal site joins Corning’s network of research and development laboratories throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, anchored by the company’s Sullivan Park innovation center in Corning, N.Y. Over the next three to five years, Corning intends to hire software engineers, development team managers, and data analysts at the Montreal center.

Helping Customers Unlock Opportunities Presented by Emerging Technologies
The Montreal center’s initial focus will be software solutions for telecommunications networks, helping Corning’s customers unlock opportunities presented by emerging technologies. It will eventually become a hub for software innovation across all of Corning’s business segments. “In addition to the immediate and near-term applications in optical communications systems, what is also very exciting to me about Corning Technology Center Montreal is how these new capabilities in software, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will support a corporate strategic initiative in materials and process informatics, and modeling across our technologies and businesses,” said David Morse, Corning executive vice president and chief technology officer. “I am delighted to welcome the CTCM team to Corning’s global network of technology centers.”

Corning Technology Center Montreal will build ties to the region’s software-innovation community through membership in IVADO, the Montreal-based research institute for data science, operational research, and artificial intelligence. Corning Technology Center Montreal aligns with Corning’s strategy for success through sustained investment in research and development, a unique combination of material and process innovation, and close collaboration with customers to solve technology challenges.
