The Evolant portfolio for FTTH includes a range of optical fiber, cable, hardware and equipment designed to make deployments faster, easier, more reliable and less costly. PorchLight, a fiber-optic network service provider installing the latest in ultra-high-speed convergent communications and entertainment networks in single-family and multi-family residential neighborhoods, is deploying Corning Cable Systems' tip-to-tip passive optical FTTH solution.

Corning Cable Systems also introduces PorchLight as the newest member of the Corning Connected Community™ Program, which will benefit both parties as they continue to bring the life-enhancing benefits of FTTH to the home to developers and homeowners.
