New Part Number Scheme for European Fibre Optic Cables
All Corning fibre optic cable part numbers manufactured in Europe are changing to make them more
consistent and globally aligned.
To ease the transition, Corning’s online catalogue and ordering system will carry references to the
former part number scheme for the next 12 months. Only customised cables will continue with their
existing part numbers.
We have recorded an online webinar that provides a simple introduction to the part number changes as
well as other amendments.






All European cables will have a new 14 digit part number.
The cables will get a new standard coding according to the European EN 60794-1-1 norm.
New brand names will be introduced for some cables.
Short and long text associated with the part numbers will change as well as the actual cable
printing.
Our online catalogue already reflects the changes as of Monday, 14th of April 2014.
Our ordering system will change on the 5th of May 2014.
