Corning provides fiber optic network cabling and connectivity for final presidential debate       Nov/06/2012

Wednesday, Oct 17, 2012

Corning Cable Systems LLC, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, is providing the fiber optic network cabling and connectivity for the final presidential debate on Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.

“The future-proof reliability and bandwidth potential of this infrastructure should serve the campus well for many years to come.

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, will discuss foreign policy issues for 90 minutes with CBS’ Bob Schieffer serving as moderator.

The presidential debate will be aired on more than 10 major networks and covered by hundreds of media members, requiring a lightning-fast, high volume of bandwidth with proven connectivity. The final debate in the 2008 presidential election was watched by 56.5 million viewers, with a similar size audience expected to watch this year’s final debate.

“Corning has stepped up to the plate and has brought forward a fantastic and cutting-edge solution for our debate infrastructure,” said Chris Boniforti, Lynn University chief information officer. “This will permit us to run network equipment at 10GB speed and allow us to take advantage of high-speed networking equipment. We are really excited that this same key infrastructure will get re-used by our students after the debate. This is a wonderful partnership, and we are excited about our future with Corning.”

“Corning is honored to be a critical part of this historic event, and we are confident that Lynn University will have the high-performing network it needs for the debate to be an enormous success,” said Stuart Hoiness, senior vice president, Enterprise Networks, Corning Cable Systems. “The future-proof reliability and bandwidth potential of this infrastructure should serve the campus well for many years to come.”

To meet the demand for more bandwidth, Corning has installed its LANscape® Solutions. The new fiber optic network will remain after the debate for the university to use. The network includes FREEDM® One indoor/outdoor fiber optic cable, newly designed Closet Connector Housings, UniCam® field-installable no-epoxy/no-polish connectors, and a UniCam® Connector Installation toolkit.

Corning has become an industry leader in expanding the communications capabilities in large venues such as M&T Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens, and for events such as Super Bowl XLVI, CTIA WIRELESS 2012, and multiple venues associated with the 2012 Democratic and Republican national conventions.
