42 | BROADBAND COMMUNITIES | www.broadbandcommunities.com | JULY 2016 FIBER-TO-THE-HOME TOP 100 LIST Andrew Corporation and SYSTIMAX, made CommScope a leading communications infrastructure provider that offers end-to-end passive network equipment to meet the growing demand for network bandwidth. CommScope's broadband and broadband network solutions segments reported more than $1 billion in revenue for 2015. Corning / Corning Optical Communications www.corning.com; www.corning.com/opcomm 828-901-5000 Key Products: Optical fiber, optical fiber cable, FTTH cabinets, splitters, terminals, connectors, cable assemblies, MDU products, other telecommunications hardware and equipment, engineering services, training Summary: Corning is one of the world's leading innovators in materials science. For more than 160 years, it has applied its expertise in specialty glass, ceramics and optical physics to develop products that have created new industries. Corning Optical Communications develops and manufactures optical fiber, wireless technologies and connectivity solutions that enable high-speed communications networks. It developed the first commercial low-loss optical fiber in 1970. Its preconnectorized solutions, such as the OptiTap connector, introduced a new way to deploy FTTH networks, and its ultra- bendable ClearCurve product suite opened the way for cost- effective installation of fiber in MDUs and other challenging environments. Corning SMF-28 Ultra Fiber, designed for high performance across the range of long-haul, metro, access, and fiber-to-the-home network applications, combines the benefits of low attenuation and improved macrobend performance in one fiber. e Corning ONE Wireless Platform, the first all-optical converged cellular and Wi-Fi solution, supports cellular service enhancements and other building applications, including Wi-Fi, video surveillance and building automation, and the Centrix optical connectivity solution combines high termination density with an intuitive jumper routing system and superior cable management. Corning's sales were $9.8 billion in 2015, of which Optical Communications accounted for just under $3 billion.
