Corning will supply Verizon with up to 20 million kilometers of optical fiber annually.
Imagine data zooming to and from your device 100 times faster than it can today, making the dreaded spinning buffering wheel a woe of the past. The ever-developing telecom industry is trending in an exciting new direction – 5G. 5G will deliver fiber-like speeds over a wireless connection. “Wireless is not that wireless,” said Clark Kinlin, executive vice president, Corning Incorporated. He added, an advanced fiber framework must be in place before progress in 5G can be made.
Corning plays a leading role in this transformation. From large datacenters to the connections to your home, Corning enables the fiber network infrastructure. This means Corning’s fiber dictates the coverage and capacity of the networks that you’re probably utilizing right now.
