BERLIN, July 7 /PRNewswire/ --

- Seminar Attendees to get First-hand Experience With LANscape(R) Pretium(R)
EDGE Solutions

Corning Cable Systems GmbH Co KG, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW)
Telecommunications segment, will feature its new LANscape(R) Pretium(R)
Evolved-Density, Growth-Enabled (EDGE) Solutions, high-density preterminated
optical solutions for the data centre environment, at the Corning Data Centre
Seminar in Munich on July 9.

The conference in Munich opens the 2009 Corning Data Centre Seminar series,
which will also visit the Netherlands (Eindhoven, Sept. 24) and the United
Kingdom (London, Oct. 15).

The Munich Corning Data Centre Seminar will gather professionals involved in the
design, operation and management of data centres. Corning Cable Systems will be
joined by other prominent vendors in a series of presentations to address
critical issues facing today's IT managers, from next-generation data centre
design to energy-efficient, future-proof solutions for data centres.

In its interactive product fair, Corning Cable Systems will showcase its Pretium
EDGE Solutions, which allow for up to 35 percent faster deployment; enable up to
25 percent faster moves, adds and changes (MACs); and offer up to 100 percent
more density than traditional preterminated solutions.

Enabled by Corning(R) ClearCurve(R) multimode fiber,
( )Pretium EDGE Solutions feature
preterminated and tested multi-fiber assemblies, or trunks, with a minimum bend
radius as small as five times the outer diameter of the cable, compared to 10
times in traditional trunks. Pretium EDGE Solutions trunks are an average of 30
percent smaller than traditional trunks.

The cable can be more tightly routed around corners and bends, and extra slack
can be coiled without causing attenuation that may adversely impact system
performance. Pretium EDGE Solutions interconnect cables offer a minimum bend
radius of up to eight times the outer diameter, meaning more cables can be
routed and stored in the same amount of space without interfering with initial
installation or MACs.

Pretium EDGE Solutions Housings are available in both 1U and 4U sizes and mount
in 19-inch racks or cabinets. When combined with Pretium(R) EDGE Solutions
trunks and jumpers, they provide an industry-leading LC connector termination
density of 576 fibers within a single 4U housing. Pretium EDGE Solutions
Housings contain 12 individually sliding trays that can accommodate as many as
four 12-fiber LC modules or four 24-fiber MTP(R) Connector panels per tray. The
trays allow for improved finger access of connectors and offer individual access
without compromising the optical connectivity of other ports.
