CORNING, N.Y. -- Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) today announced a new micro-optic packaging technology that will dramatically reduce overall installation costs of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) communication systems, while improving performance.Corning’s MultiPort™ technology makes double use of each DWDM filter, dramatically increasing the density for multiplexing and demultiplexing channels. This innovation is suited for thin film filters as well as other micro-optic platforms.“This technology can radically change the way our customers design solutions because it addresses a key concern – optimizing the performance of optical components to reduce network cost,” said Ralf Faber, vice president and general manager, Micro-Optic Component Products. “Using MultiPort technology, Corning has submitted to customers fully compliant and operational samples with a 50% reduction in component count.”Corning will hold a live demonstration of a MultiPort device, Oct 1-4 during the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) 2001 in Amsterdam.Corning Inc.
