Corning Incorporated has expanded its Evolv™ portfolio of network connectivity solutions to provide network operators with greater flexibility and efficiency at every stage of fibre deployment – from planning to field installation to testing and monitoring.
Corning says operators can leverage its new Evolv solutions to streamline permitting, accelerate field installation and optimise network testing. Like all products in the Evolv portfolio, the newest solutions give operators the flexibility they need to deploy fibre networks on time and on budget – essential capabilities at a time of accelerating bandwidth demand and public investments in broadband.
The newest Evolv elements cover planning, field installation and monitoring and testing. Corning says its new augmented reality app allows operators to show how terminals will be placed prior to a deployment. This capability can help facilitate permit approvals – particularly in façade environments such as historic districts, where approval from the building owner is required.
The new, single-row 12-port Evolv terminals offer additional deployment flexibility. Paintable covers allow operators to deploy the terminals on façades with minimal aesthetic impact and the Evolv One-Fibre Pushlok™ Connection Kit lets operators easily connect Pushlok drops to each other, simplifying deployment. In addition, the new Evolv terminal port reflectors can be paired with Optical Network Monitoring technology to enable automated monitoring throughout the network. This allows technicians to easily isolate segments of cable for preventive maintenance and troubleshooting.
“Corning is energised by the momentum we’re seeing for investments in broadband — and we’re continuing to innovate in our Evolv portfolio to support this wave of network expansion,” said Bob Whitman, Vice President of Market Development, Carrier Networks, Corning Optical Communications. “More than ever, network operators are looking to deploy efficiently and cost-effectively, and this latest round of Evolv solutions provides new tools and new capabilities to meet those needs.”
Corning will be showing its Evolv portfolio, including the newest solutions, at Connected Britain, September 20-21 in London, UK.
