The award will be presented September 15 at the 2010 FTTH Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.

"The FTTXcellence Award has recognized outstanding and deserving winners in the past six years from a variety of market segments, and we expect the same quality of nominations for the seventh annual award," said Clark Kinlin, president and CEO of Corning Cable Systems. "As the leader in passive solutions for FTTx, Corning is proud to recognize those who lead to its success."

"The success of FTTx within the U.S. broadband stimulus program has highlighted this technology’s strength in providing high-speed services to homes and businesses across North America," added Stephen Hardy, editorial director and associate publisher of Lightwave, which has been the leading source of technical information for optical communications strategists worldwide for more than 25 years. "We at Lightwave are pleased to work with Corning to recognize those who have used FTTx to bring the benefits of broadband services to consumers and other end-users."

To be eligible for the award, candidates must be nominated by a peer. Nominees may include individuals at carriers and system operators, home developers, utilities, municipalities, or other organizations that have launched a FTTx project; individuals at vendors or research organizations whose work has benefited FTTx technology development; politicians or other policymakers who have made a significant positive impact in the regulatory or legal arena; and other deserving individuals. You may submit nominations online at www.lightwaveonline.com by Aug. 6, 2010.

A panel of judges from Lightwave and Corning will select the winner from the submitted nominations. In addition to an awards ceremony at the FTTH Conference, the winner will be honored with a donation in his or her name to One Economy Corporation, a global non-profit organization that maximizes the potential of technology to help low-income people improve their lives and enter the economic mainstream. The winner will also receive an award of Steuben glass, crafted by the world-renowned glass artists of the Steuben Glass studios in Corning, NY, and will be profiled in an issue of Lightwave.
