CORNING, N.Y. -- Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced it will invest more than $20 million to significantly increase its manufacturing capabilities for two PurePath wavelength management products, based on liquid crystal technology. This expansion will increase the level of current capacity by a factor of six times for the PurePath Dynamic Spectral Equalizer and Wavelength Selective Switch products. Both products provide high channel-count bandwidth management, and extend the reach of long-haul and metro Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks by improving signal quality.

"The level of functionality and performance provided by these liquid crystal devices has generated significant interest in the marketplace over a very short period of time," said Doug Eccleston, newly appointed business manager for Corning's Wavelength Management Products group. "Expanding our manufacturing capabilities will enhance Corning's ability to meet the demand for product samples while supporting early adopters of the technology."
