ADC and Corning Cable Systems have signed a technology transfer agreement for Corning’s OptiTap connector and adaptor line.

The OptiTap reduces the terminal and drop cable installation time for subscriber connection, thereby reducing total installed cost of deployment, said Stuart Hoiness, vice president of Hardware and Equipment Product Line Management at Corning.

Prior to manufacturing the product, ADC elected to pursue a formal technology transfer agreement to ensure full compatibility between the two companies’ products.

The agreement allows ADC to interact with Corning’s engineering and operations teams.
