Corning Incorporated : 2012-08-28 - Corning MobileAccess Enables “Always-on” Wireless Coverage in Key Areas of Charlotte and Tampa in Support of the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions

Corning MobileAccess Enables "Always-on" Wireless Coverage in Key Areas of Charlotte and Tampa in Support of the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions Corning's distributed antenna systems enhance wireless services in key locations, including Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Tampa Convention Center

HICKORY, N.C., August 28, 2012 Corning MobileAccess, part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW)  Telecommunications segment, announced that its  distributed antenna systems (DAS) have been deployed at major locations in Tampa, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C., in support of the 2012 Republican and Democratic national conventions.

In all, Corning MobileAccess' solutions provide continuous wireless access and improved cellular coverage in 12 key places - including convention centers and hotels - in the two cities where the national conventions are being held.

"The large spikes in wireless usage can create havoc with wireless service under the best conditions, let alone inside areas that are not normally conducive to receiving strong signals," said  Mike Genovese, senior vice president, Wireless Networks and New Business Development, Corning Cable Systems. "Corning is solving this problem by greatly enhancing wireless coverage in many of the places where convention attendees will be congregating. In doing so, we're supporting carriers' efforts to provide convention goers with uninterrupted, exceptional wireless service."

The DAS in the Tampa Convention Center covers the facility's 600,000 square feet. The convention center serves as a hub for the thousands of media representatives covering the 2012 Republican National Convention.

"The DAS at Tampa Convention Center is a state-of-the-art system that allows these journalists to stay connected, file stories and more. Beyond this event, it's a system that will continue to serve all convention center guests for years to come," said Rick Hamilton, director, Tampa Convention Center.

Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) deployed the Corning MobileAccess DAS to provide cellular coverage and capacity throughout 1.8 million square feet of terminal space. Wireless Services, a company that specializes in RF design and installation, designed and installed the DAS at CLT.

"We worked very closely with representatives at CLT to provide the airport with a customized, comprehensive solution to successfully support the large influx of wireless communications that will take place during the convention and beyond," said Julio Dumas, managing partner, Wireless Services. "The Corning MobileAccess technology proved to be the best option for several reasons, including its support of the latest wireless technologies, such as 4G LTE MIMO, and its flexibility and modularity, which allows for the addition of more carriers and services as necessary without impacting existing infrastructure or services."
