HICKORY, N.C. -- Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE: GLW) Telecommunications segment and Charles Industries, Ltd., have established a strategic relationship to provide best-in-class Telcordia and RDUP-accepted (formerly RUS) fiber pedestal solutions.

As a result of the collaboration Charles will provide their time-proven pedestal products, while Corning will continue to offer its fiber connectivity solutions within the unit.

Charles fiber pedestals are optimized for use with Corning Cable Systems fiber management, including OptiSheath™ Advantage Terminals. The two companies will also work together on current and future pedestal designs to ensure the fiber management is optimized to support Corning fiber terminals. This allows both companies to focus on their core strengths, providing the best value to the customer. Customers will be able to purchase the pedestals through both Corning Cable Systems and Charles.

"With Charles' industry-leading pedestal design capabilities and Corning's industry-leading fiber management knowledge, this relationship is a win-win for carriers using fiber pedestals in their networks," said Dr. Bernhard Deutsch, director of marketing and market development for Corning Cable Systems public networks.

"Charles' and Corning's complementary roles in this strategic relationship provide the industry the best combination of product performance, range of application, customer service and overall value for OSP fiber pedestal solutions," said Dick Hood, vice president of Charles Industries' outside plant business unit.
