The Optical Networks Group (ONG), a world leading research group within UCL's Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department, has been collaborating with Corning, a global innovator in material science, since ONG's inception in 1994 to address the biggest challenges facing the communications sector.
Among many successes from the collaboration, is the development and demonstration of long-distance transmission in challenging terrains, such as forests and deserts. Corning and UCL continue to jointly anticipate and address the sector's biggest future challenges, developing technologies to lead on the evolution of optical communications infrastructure.
