CORNING, N.Y. -- Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) and Nortel (NYSE/TSX: NT) have developed technologies that improve performance and lower installation and maintenance costs for regional and long-haul networks. By integrating Corning's new ultra-low-loss optical fiber technology with Nortel's optical networking equipment, the companies are making it possible for service providers to transmit information over longer distances with less equipment.

Corning and Nortel will demonstrate these advanced long-haul and regional network application products at OFC/NFOEC from March 25-27 in Anaheim, Calif. The demonstration of product solutions will be shown at the Corning exhibit, booth #2549, at the Anaheim Convention Center.

"Working with Corning has yielded a solution aimed at simplifying the deployment and operation of optical networks for customers while providing the foundation for new network services," said Philippe Morin, president, Metro Ethernet Networks, Nortel. "The ability to transfer information across greater distances with less equipment drives greater simplicity and reliability for operators. Corning shares our commitment to delivering products that enable high performance, inherent flexibility and value for optical networks."

"Combining Corning ultra-low-loss fiber technology with Nortel's eDCO and CPL equipment in this demonstration represents a truly flexible solution which can greatly help our customers in building new long-haul networks or reconfiguring their existing networks," said Clifford L. Hund, division vice president, sales and marketing, Corning Incorporated. "The integration of these products results in enhanced capability, new design opportunities and cost-savings for customers."
