Corning Reaches Milestone - UniCam Connector Sales

Corning Reaches Milestone - UniCam Connector Sales

Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunication segment, recently sold its 40 millionth UniCam Connector since introducing the product in 1993. This milestone highlights the quality, reliability and customer satisfaction associated with the connector and demonstrates Corning's unparalleled leadership position in the no-epoxy, no-polish field-installable connector market. UniCam Connectors are no-epoxy, no-polish connectors that install quickly and easily in the field with a single no-consumables tool kit, with a typical installation time of less than two minutes per connector. UniCam Connectors, available in all common connector styles for both single-mode and multimode applications, are ideal for deployments across the local area network (LAN). "Our customers have been using the Corning UniCam Connector in Europe for the last five years," said Joerg Friedel, enterprise business manager at Siemens AG in Berlin. "The quick installation reduces the total installed cost of connectorization, making the UniCam Connector cost effective for all fiber applications, from the main cross-connect to the workstation." The UniCam Connector incorporates a factory-installed fiber stub tha is bonded to the ferrule. The ferrule end-face is factory polished and inspected to provide consistent low loss and reflectance performance. The other end is precisely cleaved and placed into the patented alignment mechanism. Both the field fiber and fiber stub are fully protected from environmental factors. The UniCam Connector effectively supports 10 and 40 Gigabit digital systems, as well as analog CATV systems. "We have been installing UniCam connectors for many years," said Torsten Mueller, CEO of MVK Infrastrukturservice GmBH. "We are impressed with the high quality and performance of the UniCam Connector, especially after seeing first hand how easy the connector is to install and the positive effects this has on on-site installation and post-install testing." In addition to single- and 2-fiber UniCam connector styles, Corning Cable Systems also offers the 12-fiber UniCam MTP Connector. The high-density connector is designed for LAN or data center applications using ribbon cables. The UniCam MTP Connector is also an ideal solution to restore both multimode and single-mode multi-fiber trunks in data centers. Removing and replacing a trunk is both time-consuming and costly for the installer. Using a UniCam MTP Connector allows installation personnel to restore a trunk in minutes
