ATLANTA -- Wave7 Optics Inc., the world's leading supplier of point-to-multipoint Ethernet FTTP (fiber-to-the-premises) systems for residential and business services, today announced that the Scott County Telephone Co-Op (SCTC) of Virginia is now installing the Last Mile Link (LML) system to provide the community of Duffield a state-of-the-art FTTP network delivering a complete "triple play" suite of digital IP (Internet protocol) video, extremely high-speed Internet and VoIP (voice over IP) telephone services. SCTC's initial installation will comprise both residential and business customers, including the Duffield Industrial Park. SCTC is "overlaying" existing copper lines with fiber and plans to complete the project by December 2004.

"This project will be an economic boon for the community by helping to expand our existing businesses and attract new ones," said Bill Franklin, CEO of SCTC. "As for the system, we are impressed by Wave7's technically superior approach to FTTP, as demonstrated by the fact that we have had no integration issues with our other vendors on this projects, such as the Siemens Class 5 switch, the Occam voice gateway, Cisco router and the Optibase IP video headend."

"We are pleased to announce our first customer in Virginia and look forward to more installations in the Commonwealth," said Tom Tighe, CEO of Wave7 Optics. "The Scott County project has been a very good one on a number of levels, in terms of demonstrating the LML's flexibility and interoperability with a number of equipment vendors and in delivering the highest-quality FTTP system possible for SCTC's customers."
