When Corning first developed break resistant glass in 1962, the company had trouble finding an application for it! Today, Corning’s chemically strengthened Gorilla Glass, based on that earlier invention, provides impact and scratch resistance for high-end consumer electronic devices such as Iphones and IT applications. Corning have over 150 years of experience in the world of telecommunications, as one of the original pioneers and now an experienced partner in the field of fibre optic cable technology. Corning also helped a young inventor named Thomas Edison make his electric light a commercial success by producing the first glass light bulbs in 1879.
Recently Corning Cable System introduced the LANC system, an innovative fibre optic cabling solution for Local Area Networks applications. Corning Cable Systems LANC product family provides an economical solution fulfilling the basic requirements for a cabling solution in the Enterprise LAN applications. The system design allows configurations for different connectivity for fibre optic links. The Corning LANC system provides solutions for field installed connectors as well as pigtail splicing.
The LANC adapter and connector modules enable a free combination of multimode and single-mode fibres with LC, SC and ST compatible connectors in one patch panel. All adapters are equipped with metal ferrules. The Corning LANC patch panel housing for 1RU (rack units) provides a removable top lid and cable entries for strain relief with M-glands. The system is complemented with UniCam connectors in combination with 12 and 24 fibre tight buffer (TB3) iMUC cables with Corning bend-insensitive ClearCurve® optical fibre for fast and easy high-quality field termination for wide temperature ranges. Fusion splicing is made easy with Corning Loose Tube or Central Tube Cables and pre-assembled, colour-coded pigtail kits.
