Case Study: Corning

Building a secure, efficient wireless workplace

When it came time to update Corning's RD&E campus, the New York-based manufacturer worked with Cisco to create a modern, high-bandwidth wireless experience. Using Cisco products and Corning ONE, a fiber-based network topology, the company reshaped its workspace and created a more efficient and scalable network.

Summary

Challenges

  • Provide reliable wireless access to RD&E campus employees.
  • Introduce a more efficient, easily scalable network architecture.
  • Deliver high-bandwidth connectivity for older wired lab systems.

Results

  • Complete wireless connectivity to all employees and guests.
  • Saved more than 16,000 square feet of closet space.
  • Cut installation time from years to months.
  • Saved an estimated 60-70% on network installation costs.

What they're saying

"Cisco's wireless access points deliver the performance and security we need to power a 100-percent wireless office environment."

Glenn Bleiler, IT Director, Corning
