3D Printing Technology And 3D Printers - How They Are Changing The World Computer Technology - How Laptops, Personal Computers And Tablets Are Changing The World As the number of mobile phone users grows each year, every network provider scrambles to be the number one broadband company in the country. Verizon announced an agreement with Corning to a three-year deal worth $1.05 billion. Corning will provide Verizon with fiber optic cables from 2018 through 2020. With AT&T's acquisition of Straight Path, and T-Mobile's bidding at FCC airwaves auction, it is Verizon's turn to make sure it will not lose out in the mobile network race. This Corning deal can ensure stable connection and coverage at the very least for the next three years. Verizon made the announcement via its official press release. The agreement entails Corning to provide Verizon with up to 20 million kilometers (12.4 million miles) of fiber optics each year from 2018 to 2020. The minimum purchase commitment is priced at $1.05 billion. Verizon wrote that it is revamping its network architecture using a next-gen fiber platform as the backbone of all the company's businesses. Verizon aims to improve its 4G LTE coverage and provide high-speed broadband both to commercial and residential markets. The company also plans to speed up the deployment of its 5G technology with this deal. "Corning's unique combination of capabilities delivers solutions that provide us with performance and cost advantages as we continue to expand our network coverage and capacity," said Roger Gurnani, Verizon's chief information and technology architect. In 2016, Verizon initially launched One Fiber Project in Boston; it is backed by a six-year, $300-million investment plan for the city. The deal is to ensure that Verizon won't experience a shortage of fiber supply, a scenario that Verizon itself has identified, according to Viju Menon, Verizon's chief supply chain officer. "Securing the required volume of optical fiber and hardware solutions with Corning will ensure we meet our planned rollout schedules," Menon said. Corning is a company with a history etched on glass, so to speak. Incorporated in 1936, this New York-based glass company provides glass, ceramic, and other related materials for use in industrial, electronic, and scientific applications. Its most famous product is the Pyrex, the high-strength, low-thermal glass used in laboratory glassware and kitchenware. In this age of smartphones, the Gorilla Glass is Corning's most famous product, as it is used by most flagship phones. This clear and thin but strong glass is designed to function as protective glass for many portable electronic devices. Corning also dabbles in communications with its optic fibers. Corning announced several plans for expansion and investment of $250 million in optic fibers to meet the demand of its customers, according to the press release. These capacity expansions will be fully operational in 2018. "Verizon's purchase commitment supports necessary capacity investments across our manufacturing footprint," said Clark Kinlin, executive vice president of Corning Incorporated. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved.

BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS – Today, Menlo Micro, announces its revolutionary Digital-Micro-Switch (DMS) technology platform. Now qualified for production, this next-generation wafer-level process enables the fabrication of micro-mechanical switches for both power and RF applications. With the DMS process, Menlo has demonstrated an industry leading R C performance below 50 fs, and will sample devices at 10 fs, a 10x improvement compared to traditional switches, in the next 12-18 months. R C is the key figure-of-merit used by the semiconductor industry to quantify the quality or performance of an RF switch. With the proliferation of new frequency bands, including much higher frequencies, the performance of the RF switch will become an increasingly important factor in enabling higher data-rates, longer battery life, and much more flexible architectures for 5G applications. Menlo Micro will demonstrate this technology at Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona, Spain, Hall 6, Meeting Room, 6O24MR. Using proprietary materials, designs, and wafer-level processing techniques licensed exclusively from General Electric, Menlo’s DMS technology has proven reliability and can not only handle kW of power, but can be scaled down in size and cost to making it cost-competitive with silicon-on-insulator (SOI). The switches are made from proprietary metal alloys, plated onto glass wafers with through glass vias (TGV) from supplier and investor Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW), resulting in extremely high reliability and improved RF performance. “We see the DMS platform, our re-invention of the switch, as a true revolution in the industry,” said Menlo SVP Product Development, Chris Giovanniello. “The fully-isolating substrate, combined with the elimination of the transistor, allows us to achieve performance previously unattainable with purely solid-state technologies such as SOI. We’re not talking about small, incremental improvements to R C , but more than an order of magnitude of improvement in the next 18 months over what is in production today.” In addition to the key figure-of-merit R C , Menlo has demonstrated linearity above +90dBm, which is 15-20dB better than what is traditionally considered best-in-class performance. Switches that the company now has in development will have insertion loss < 0.3dB at 12GHz and cover bandwidths from DC-18GHz, with the ability to extend up to even higher frequencies, including mmWave. Menlo and Corning are working together to establish a supply chain for high-performance semiconductor glass wafers with TGV technology, and scale-up of the manufacturing processes. “Trends around higher speed, miniaturization and interconnectivity are all driving the increased use of glass in many electronics applications. Menlo’s new products, enabled by Corning’s TGV solution and the inherent properties of our glass, have the potential to revolutionize whole subsets of the industry,” said David Velasquez, business director, Corning Precision Glass Solutions. “We expect many other new applications to take advantage of the superior properties of our precision glass solutions in the near future.” In addition to the performance advantages, the Menlo DMS process is typically 12 metal layers, thanks to advancements in high-temperature, high-reliability alloys. With only half of the manufacturing steps required of a typical CMOS wafer, the process can be scaled to be cost-competitive with SOI, enabling high-volume applications such as antenna switch modules (ASM), filters, tuning networks, and band-switching for next-generation 5G smartphones and communications systems. Menlo is actively engaged with a number of technology partners to license the DMS technology into the consumer mobile handset market. Headquartered in Irvine, California, Menlo Micro is reimagining one of the most fundamental building blocks of electronic systems – the electronic switch. The company’s Digital-Micro-Switch platform is a game changer for those who design electronic systems, serving multiple industries including next generation 5G mobile networks, industrial IoT markets, battery management, home-automation, electronic vehicles and medical instrumentation. Menlo Micro is backed by GE Ventures, with investments from Corning Incorporated, Microsemi Corporation, and Paladin Capital Group.
