HICKORY, N.C. -- Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, introduces Plug & Play™ OSP Systems. The innovative system allows for quicker and more cost-effective installations in the outside plant local area network (LAN).

The Plug & Play OSP System consists of an optical cable pre-installed with network access points at customer-specified intervals and a tethered, environmentally hardened MT connector. Once distance measurements for network access point locations are obtained, the Plug & Play OSP System is manufactured and tested. The entire system is then packaged and shipped to the customer on a cable reel for immediate deployment.

The MT network access points consist of a patented, flexible pre-installed overmold closure. A flat drop tether cable is attached to the network access point and terminated with an environmentally hardened and factory-tested MT connector. When network connection is required at the drop location, the customer has several drop options: a 12-fiber MTP® Connector, standard connector type (LC, SC, etc.) or an OptiSheath™ Advantage MultiPort Terminal (which can be configured with four, six, eight or 12 drop cable ports).

Compatible with both below-ground and aerial applications, Corning Cable Systems’ Plug & Play OSP Systems allow network installation to be completed much more efficiently and at speeds up to 50 percent faster than traditional field installations, with total deployment cost savings of up to 20 percent.
