BURLINGTON, Ontario -- Light Management Group Inc. (LMGR - OTC:BB) announced today that it has reached a new milestone, having signed a Letter of Intent with Empyrean Communications, Inc. (``Empyrean''), of Houston, Texas, to form a business-and-technology alliance in which Empyrean will employ LMGR's revolutionary fiber-optical switch over Empyrean's United States-wide broadband networks, starting with that company's Atlanta-to-New York network.

LMGR's fiber-optical switch, originally designed by LMGR Chief Engineer Gennadii Ivtsenkov, Ph.D and employing LMGR's unique acousto-optic designs, can form the basis of an optimal fiber-optical line communication network. The optical lines utilizing LMGR's proprietary switch can carry 10 Gigabytes of information per second, in comparison to 50 Kbyts over phone lines -- i.e., two million times as quickly. LMGR's Fiber-Optical Line Switch does not have any mechanical parts and uses the electronically and computer-controlled acousto-optical deflector set, which can randomly connect the channels from the array to the single fiber-optical line, resulting in extremely fast switching times - of not more than a few microseconds.
