Corning Provides Fiber Optic Network Cabling and Connectivity for Final Presidential debate on Oct. 22 at Lynn University
Corning is providing the fiber optic network cabling and connectivity for the final presidential debate on Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, will discuss foreign policy issues for 90 minutes with CBS’ Bob Schieffer serving as moderator. The presidential debate will be aired on more than 10 major networks and covered by hundreds of media members, requiring a lightning-fast, high volume of bandwidth with proven connectivity. The final debate in the 2008 presidential election was watched by 56.5 million viewers, with a similar size audience expected to watch this year’s final debate.
To meet the demand for more bandwidth, Corning has installed its LANscape Solutions. The new fiber optic network will remain after the debate for the university to use. The network includes FREEDM One indoor/outdoor fiber optic cable, newly designed Closet Connector Housings, UniCam field-installable no-epoxy/no-polish connectors, and a UniCam Connector Installation toolkit.
