March 19, 2012 – Graybar, a distributor of electrical, communications and data networking products and provider of related supply chain management and logistics services, has signed an agreement to distribute the full line of Corning MobileAccess’ distributed antenna systems (DAS) solutions, including the entire Corning MobileAccess DAS product line, which works in concert with Corning’s fiber infrastructure solutions.

“The increasing reliance on mobile devices and bandwidth-hungry applications, coupled with long-standing wireless coverage challenges, has made DAS an important tool for enterprise effectiveness,” said Darlene Braunschweig, senior vice president of global sales at Corning MobileAccess, part of Corning Incorporated’s Telecommunications segment. “With this agreement, Corning MobileAccess looks forward to working with Graybar on helping to solve these critical enterprise needs.”

With Corning MobileAccess’ solutions, Graybar said it can offer flexible and scalable in-building cellular solutions that deliver carrier-grade cellular service, public safety systems, wireless medical telemetry service and more to enterprise customers. The combined portfolio will provide solutions that scale for any environment; from a single service in a small building all the way up to multiple services across an entire campus, said the companies.

“As a Corning Cable Systems distributor for more than 20 years, we look forward to expanding our relationship with Corning and believe the Corning MobileAccess line of products will complement our other communications and intelligent building solutions,” said Steve Stone, vice president of electrical construction and comm/data for Graybar.
