Corning Supplies Hardened Connector for Alcatel-Lucent's GPON

Corning Cable Systems will supply Alcatel-Lucent with its OptiTap Connector and Adapter for use in Alcatel-Lucent's GPON system. The MOU outlines the terms of a multi-year agreement to be negotiated and signed by Corning Cable Systems and Alcatel-Lucent, by which Corning Cable Systems will become the exclusive supplier of OptiTap Connectors and Adapters for the Alcatel-Lucent system.

The Corning Cable Systems OptiTap Connector and Adapter is a factory-terminated, environmentally sealed and hardened connector for use in drop cable deployments in optical access networks. The hardened connector significantly reduces the terminal and drop cable installation time for subscriber connection, thereby reducing the total installed cost of deployment.
