Corning Cable Systems, part of the Telecommunications segment of Corning Incorporated (yes, the makers of CorningWare dishes), will highlight flexibility in fibre-to-the-antenna (FTTA) deployment solutions at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona this week.
Today’s wireless operators face ongoing challenges to supply the coverage and capacity that their customers want, especially for data. This means deploying 3G and 4G solutions, often in crowded tower and rooftop environments. Corning’s Solutions for Wireless Networks leverage field-proven innovations to make FTTA deployment a fast plug-and-play operation that can save time and money.
Corning Cable Systems’ Solutions for Wireless Networks enable service providers to easily install and upgrade wireless networks.
Corning’s exhibit at MWC will feature its latest FTTA solutions, including:
Combination optical fibre and power
* Remote Radio Distribution Terminal, which combines optical and power connectivity into one terminal.
Optical fibre only
‚Ä¢ OptiSheath MF2 MultiPort Terminal, which is placed at the top of the tower or on the rooftop to form the foundation of the solution.
‚Ä¢ Remote Radio Fibre Optic Cable Assembly, a preconnectorised assembly, or jumper, with a connector for the remote radio head (RRH) interface on one end and the MultiPort Terminal on the other.
‚Ä¢ Wireless Consolidation Terminal, which allows wireless backhaul providers to easily manage fibre drops to base station equipment at the cell site.
‚Ä¢ Cell Site Drop Assembly, which is a preconnectorised cable assembly that makes that final link from the demarcation cabinet to an individual operator.
