BERLIN, Germany, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Corning Cable Systems GmbH Co KG, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, will demonstrate its leadership and innovation in Plug and Play(TM) Universal Low-Loss Systems at the second 2009 Corning Customer Day at Berlin European Headquarters on Apr. 22.

Corning Cable Systems Plug Play Universal Low-Loss Systems are preterminated optical fibre cabling systems designed to dramatically improve performance for the increasing demand for high speeds in the data centre, enterprise building backbone and fibre-to-the-desk applications.

The factory-terminated solutions provide improved system performance, ensure component compatibility and yield consistent quality. Plug Play Universal Low-Loss Systems components are simple to configure and can be installed, connected and made operational in a fraction of the time when compared to using conventional, field-termination methods. Universal wiring provides a simple migration path between two-fibre and parallel applications, and with the use of modular components, enables fast and simple networking moves, adds and changes without concerns associated with special polarity-compensating components.

Plug Play Universal Low-Loss Systems, consisting of modules, trunks and extender trunks, harnesses and jumpers, features MTP(R)-to-LC Connector and MTP-to-SC Connector modules and harnesses with a maximum loss of 0.5 dB. The system provides architecture design flexibility while providing additional loss margin.

Corning Cable Systems Plug Play Universal Systems are 100G Ethernet ready, capable of reliably supporting transmission speeds up to 100G with laser-optimized Corning(R) InfiniCor(R) 50 micrometres multimode (OM3) fibre. The deployment of Plug Play Universal Systems today will support the migration path to 100G Ethernet in accordance with the IEEE 802.3ba Standard.
