CORNING, N.Y. -- Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced that Verizon Communications Inc. has purchased Corning's ClearCurve™ rugged drop cable solution as part of the telecommunications company's effort to roll out its FiOS services.

Corning's ClearCurve product suite helps overcome the installation challenges in multiple-dwelling units (MDUs) by providing a bend-resistant fiber optimized for the strenuous deployment conditions in apartment buildings and condominium complexes. Verizon qualified the ClearCurve technology as an optimal solution for MDU applications following a successful series of field trials.

"This is the year that Verizon moves into high gear in deploying FiOS TV and FiOS Internet to apartment buildings, condos and similar multiple dwelling units," said Claire Beth Nogay, senior vice president and chief network officer for Verizon Telecom. "Corning's bendable optical fiber cable is particularly valuable in the tight spaces typical of these sorts of buildings. ClearCurve rugged drop cable is an initial product in what promises to be a family of specialized bendable fiber products we expect to use across our network going forward."
