En-Touch Selects Wave7

ATLANTA and LAS VEGAS -- Wave7 Optics Inc., a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home or -premises (FTTH/FTTP) equipment for residential and business services, today announced that En-Touch Systems, Inc., a “quad play” provider delivering service to over 11,000 homes and businesses in southeast Texas, has selected the Trident7™ Optical Access Platform for multiple FTTP networks. As En-Touch’s exclusive provider of FTTP systems, Wave7 Optics has begun deploying and will continue deploying over the next five years the Trident7 in “master-planned” communities for both residential and business services.

The initial FTTP network expansion is projected to pass more than 28,000 homes and businesses. En-Touch currently has the Trident7 operational in the Telfair community in Sugar Land, Texas and will soon connect other communities in Fort Bend and Harris counties. All networks will offer a “quad play” package of traditional (“POTS”) telephone service, RF television (currently 239 channels, including HDTV), 5 to 15 Mbs high-speed Internet and security monitoring services.

“We evaluated a number of systems during the course of this year and came to the conclusion that the Trident7 best meets the needs of our customers now and gives us a solid footing going forward,” said Jason Bone, En-Touch Director of Engineering. “Given its many deployment and operational advantages, such as the ability to offer a tremendous variety of service offerings with on-demand and interactive features, we believe the Trident7 will help us establish a clear competitive edge over other operators in our service area.”
