INTRODUCTION

Corning is a Fortune 500® company and one of the world's leading innovators in materials science. With a 168-year track record, Corning has combined unparalleled expertise in glass science, ceramics science, and optical physics with deep manufacturing and engineering capabilities to develop life-changing innovations. As Corning’s business continues to grow, Optical Communications has become the company’s largest division, providing a broad range of end-to-end fiber and wireless solutions for communications networks.

THE CHALLENGE

Corning recently relocated their Optical Communications division to their headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina. Inside the brand-new, 180,000-square-foot facility, Corning was looking to standardize on a wireless-first approach with 1,100 above the ceiling network drops to create a clean design throughout the building. Additionally, they wanted to design an AV infrastructure that would not only enhance the employee’s overall work experience, but also complement the modern architecture of the building.

THE SOLUTION

Deploy a robust AV platform built on Crestron technology that would handle all content distribution and video conferencing needs at the Corning Optical Communications Headquarters.
