The IEEE's award is presented for "outstanding and exemplary contributions in the field of electro technology by an industrial entity, governmental or academic organization, or other corporate body." ClearCurve technology, says Corning, is an ultra-bendable fiber that can be handled like copper cables, but provides the near limitless bandwidth of optical fiber.
