Corning MobileAccess Named Top Vendor of Distributed Antenna Systems by ABI Research

Corning MobileAccess, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, has been ranked the No.1 distributed antenna systems (DAS) vendor in ABI Research’s Competitive Assessment report for the in-building wireless market.

Corning MobileAccess was recognized in the assessment report published last month by ABI Research, a leading market intelligence firm.

“We’re extremely excited to be named the top-rated DAS vendor by ABI Research, one of the most-respected technology market intelligence firms,” said Mike Genovese, senior vice president, Wireless Networks and New Business Development, Corning Cable Systems. “This recognition is a testament to our innovative approach, which aims to provide carriers and their customers with top-flight, in-building wireless solutions that fit specific venue types.”

Corning MobileAccess’ DAS is currently in use in major locations throughout the United States. The company’s technology was instrumental in providing “always-on” wireless coverage earlier this year to several sites throughout Indianapolis, including Lucas Oil Stadium, for Super Bowl XLVI.

Also, Corning MobileAccess was the primary DAS provider for International CTIA WIRELESS® 2012, one of the world’s premier wireless conferences. The Corning MobileAccess DAS was also installed in key locations throughout Tampa and Charlotte in support of the 2012 Republican and Democratic national conventions, as well as in major hotels, hospitals, sports venues and other locations across the country.

Over the past year, Corning MobileAccess has introduced new solutions in its family of products. The company recently launched MobileAccessGX, a high-power, 40-watt DAS remote unit for campuses as well as outdoor, open-air, and underground environments.

MobileAccessHX, a 2-watt remote solution ideal for open indoor areas – such as airports, high rises and parking garages – was also recently released. Corning MobileAccess’ commitment to innovation continues to drive the company’s investments in its next generation of DAS solutions.

“Corning Mobile Access brings together the ability to offer both cabling and innovative DAS solutions, including single-cable, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) support, DAS optimization and MobileAccessVE, a unique CAT 5-based solution that was the first to deliver cellular services over a local-area-network (LAN) infrastructure,” said Aditya Kaul, practice director, Mobile Networks, ABI Research. “This approach places Corning MobileAccess as a top contender in the in-building wireless solutions market.”
