Corning highlights at the show: The Building Access Terminal (BAT) is a wall-mountable building distribution point that supports a high-capacity cabling infrastructure to deliver high-speed digital communications to users within a building. It is used in conjunction with Passive Optical LAN (POL) technology to replace traditional data network electronics and copper cables with passive optical splitters and fibre cables. The BAT houses these splitters and terminates and distributes the fibre connectivity through the building.
This gigabit infrastructure provides services to users, rooms and desks over a single building network. The unit can be deployed in the basement and/or on each floor, depending on building layout and size. Its technology represents an evolution in communications within buildings, marking a departure from congested ducts full of copper cables and the need to provide power to network devices.
To demonstrate the full Passive Optical LAN (POL) solution Corning are sharing the booth with Zhone Technologies.
Besides meeting Corning representatives, Corning invite you to participate at the daily drawing for a brand-new smartwatch, simply answering three questions and leaving your business card at the booth.
