Corning's RocketRibbon rewarded

Corning's RocketRibbon™ extreme density cable has been recognized as the “Data Center Physical Connectivity Innovation of the Year” at the Data Center Solutions (DCS) Awards in London. This is the seventh consecutive year that a Corning product has won a DCS award.

Corning’s unique RocketRibbon cabling design, with ribbon sub-units that are easy to manage, identify, and trace, is making a significant impact on cable deployments for large-campus data center interconnects. Its smaller, denser design enables faster implementation and easier fiber management, and it provides proven cost-saving capabilities with its capacity of up to 3,456 fibers in approximately the same area of existing lower fiber-count central tube and stranded ribbon tube designs.

“To receive industry recognition at a ceremony as respected as the DCS Awards is a testament to the hard work that our teams have put into making this ground-breaking system of ribbon protection and sub-units a reality,” said Cindy Ryborz, EMEA data center marketing manager, Corning Optical Communications. “Our first thought is always our customers, and we’re pleased with the benefits RocketRibbon delivers relating to both installation and network design.”

“The DCS Awards are designed to recognize the very best innovators and products in the data center industry. Corning has once again proven it belongs in this bracket with its win in the ‘Data Center Physical Connectivity Innovation of the Year’ category. Our congratulations to Corning,” said Stephen Whitehurst, CEO, Angel Business Communications Ltd – organisers of the DCS Awards.

Entries in the “Data Center Physical Connectivity Innovation of the Year” category included a range of leading data center cabling technologies. Products were evaluated on their ability to demonstrate competitive advantage and a clear return on investment for users.
