Corning to Showcase Latest Wireless Solutions at Mobile World Congress 
DAS, Fiber Connectivity and Fiber-to-the-Antenna Products Create a
Powerful Platform for Enhanced Wireless Coverage 
HICKORY, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/24/13 --  Corning Incorporated's
(NYSE: GLW) Telecommunications segment today announced it will
showcase its full suite of wireless products at Mobile World Congress
in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28. Corning will highlight how its
multi-operator, multi-service distributed antenna systems (DAS),
fiber connectivity and fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) solutions
cost-effectively and efficiently enhance wireless services. 
Corning will showcase several products offered by Corning Cable
Systems and Corning MobileAccess. Those include the MobileAccess2000,
MobileAccessHX, and MobileAccessVE DAS solutions, and connectivity
and cabling solutions utilizing multi-fiber connector technology,
including low-profile FTTA hardened interconnect and terminal
solutions.  
Corning's wireless solutions are designed to help carriers meet
growing demands for wireless coverage and capacity. The company's
fiber-to-the-cell site products are high-bandwidth solutions that
ensure carriers' backhaul needs are met, while its FTTA solutions
offer reduced installation time and cost savings compared to
traditional coaxial-based cabling. The Corning DAS supports all core
technologies, including 4G LTE, and helps carriers provide
high-quality voice and data services indoors.  
"Over the past few years, we've seen the demand for Corning's
wireless offerings grow as carriers increase investments in DAS,
fiber connectivity and FTTA solutions," said Mike O'Day, vice
president, Wireless Networks, Corning Cable Systems. "We expect this
to continue throughout 2013 and beyond, particularly as people
continue to use multiple devices, and data consumption increases."  
Demonstrations and examples of all Corning telecommunications
solutions will be displayed at the company's booth, #6E13, Hall 6, at
the Fira Gran Via conference center. Mobile World Congress will be
held February 25-28.
