Corning Cable Systems to Provide Solutions to Kazakhstan

March 16, 2011

Corning Cable Systems GmbH & Co KG, part of Corning Inc.’s Telecommunications segment, will supply its passive optical solutions to Astanatelecom for the historic initiative to bring fiber to the home (FTTH) to the residents of Astana, the capital and second-largest city of Kazakhstan. Astanatelecom plans to connect 1000 single-family units in the growing city of Astana.

Corning’s flexible, interchangeable Evolant® Solutions for FTTx networks help to make SFU deployments easier and faster with preterminated solutions, no-epoxy/no-polish connectors, and Corning’s bend-insensitive ClearCurve® single-mode fiber.

“Corning has a long history of innovation, and we are proud to be part of this ground-breaking project,” said Gilbert Chorosz, senior vice president, carrier networks for Corning Cable Systems. “Our technology and design expertise help ensure the project will provide state-of-the-art broadband in a seamless, reliable and cost-efficient manner.”

“We’re excited to have this opportunity to deploy Corning’s top-quality fiber optic solutions for our new network,” said Abylai Seitzhanov, technical director of Astanatelecom. “This fiber optic network will virtually ‘future-proof’ these communities, enabling them to access state-of-the-art broadband services.”
