Corning Chosen for Australian FTTH Network

Corning has been selected as the exclusive passive equipment supplier for a greenfield fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployment in western Australia. Broadcast Engineering Services (BES) will deploy Corning's Evolant Solution for Access Networks with NexCor optical fiber. BES has signed agreements with real estate developers to install greenfield FTTH networks throughout this region. Currently, three developments - Somerly, Brighton and Vale are slated for deployment, with a total of 2,000 homes to be passed by early 2006.

Corning said this marks the first deployment of its NexCor fiber in Australia. Corning has engineered NexCor fiber, the only single-mode fiber specified for all PON transmission wavelengths, to provide optimized FTTH performance while maintaining complete backward compatibility with Corning SMF-28e fiber, the world's most widely deployed brand of fiber.
