ATLANTA, Ga. and BRISBANE, Q.L.D. –- Wave7 Optics announced today that they, in conjunction with Delfcam, the network installer and operator, have won the contract to install a FTTP (fiber-to-the-premises) network in the prestigious Sanctuary Cove residential development, on Australia’s Gold Coast, 45 minutes from Brisbane. The two companies expect to connect more than 1500 homes by the end of 2006. The initial phase, which has already begun, consists of 130 homes.

Sanctuary Cove, a Mulpha Australia Limited project, will be one of the first Australian developments of its kind to provide FTTP-based services and will use the Last Mile Link to offer: digital video including local over-the-air, cable and satellite television channels, video-on-demand services, wi-fi hotspots, the highest-speed Internet service in the country, multiple telephone lines per residence, a community intercom and security system featuring closed-circuit television and gate access control, and home automation services.

"We were impressed by the team of Delfcam, Wave7 Optics and Sanctuary Cove’s consultants, RightICT, who were able to configure the network at an economical $1950 AUD [approximately $1500 US] per home,” said Geoff Grady, Chief Executive Officer, Sanctuary Cove. “Furthermore, the service capabilities of the Last Mile Link are simply stunning. One of the most attractive aspects of the Last Mile link is the capability to provide an up to 500 Mbs symmetrical service, which gives us ‘future-proof’ peace of mind. We feel the Last Mile Link will make the finest development in Australia that much more attractive."
