CES 2014 Self-Guided Tour Exhibitor: Corning


CorningCorning Incorporated is the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. Drawing on more than 160 years of materials science and process engineering knowledge, Corning creates and makes keystone components that enable high-technology systems for consumer electronics, mobile emissions control, telecommunications and life sciences.

Corning has products in many different areas: glass substrates for LCD screens, ceramic substrates for mobile emission control systems, optical cable and more. But now, Corning is doing something else for the consumer. They are helping us communicate better when we’re in a large complex like setting.

How many times have you tried to make a phone call from a major sports arena? Sometimes when you go to use your phone in a big stadium the experience is less than ideal, and that’s putting it nicely.

Corning’s distributed antenna systems deliver always-on wireless coverage in more than 50 major sports venues and arenas across North America. Now, as many as 2.4 million spectators have access to super-fast voice, texting and data coverage – at the same time.

Corning’s technology can be found at 12 NFL football stadiums, seven Major League Baseball parks, and 14 college stadiums and arenas. There are an additional eight stadiums and arenas in Canada and Mexico, including one of the world’s largest bullrings, located in Mexico City. The next time you go to make a call at a ballgame – and the call goes through – thank Corning for making it possible.
