Corning Inc. will highlight products for access networks at the first Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council Conference, “Faster than the Speed of Life” next week in New Orleans.

“FTTH is the long-term network solution for meeting growing subscriber bandwidth needs,” said Wendell P. Weeks, Corning’s president and COO. “High bandwidth consumer applications continue to stress existing networks and competing broadband technologies. Optical fiber is the answer to future-proof systems and enable bandwidth intensive applications and products as they become available.”

Corning will deliver several presentations at the conference, including an overview of international FTTH and broadband deployment, and a comparison of fiber installation techniques for FTTH applications.

“Customers, end users and network owners are starting to understand that FTTH is a viable, ready business,” said Bob Whitman, manager, global broadband market development for Corning Optical Fiber and FTTH Council Board Member. “The FTTH Conference will provide those planning or constructing a broadband network with solid information on FTTH equipment, systems and solutions available today that can be implemented cost-effectively.”

The Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council is a non-profit organization established in 2001 to educate the public on the opportunities and benefits of fiber-to-the-home solutions. FTTH Council members represent all areas of broadband industries, including telecommunications, computing, networking, system integration, engineering, and content-provider companies, as well as traditional telecommunications service providers, utilities and municipalities.
