LayerOne Enters Agreement With TXU

DALLAS -- LayerOne, Inc., a global provider of layer one optical transport exchange facilities and services, today announced it has signed a master service agreement with TXU Communications to connect the company's extensive regional fiber network to LayerOne's optical transport exchange facilities. TXU Communications plans to take advantage of the cost- effective distribution technology within LayerOne's NEXUS Optical Distribution Exchanges(TM), and tap a ready pool of potential buyers for its wholesale bandwidth and dark fiber services. TXU Communications initially plans to deploy in LayerOne's Dallas Exchange, gaining immediate access to some of the country's largest fiber optic networks, with options to extend its network into any of LayerOne's fourteen additional facilities, including two additional Texas facilities currently under construction in Fort Worth and Houston.

"Our Exchanges provide telecommunications companies, like TXU Communications, a very cost-efficient way to leverage their existing fiber assets and an easy way to begin selling optical tributaries," said Alexander Muse, president and CEO of LayerOne. "With TXU Communications, we now have three major utility/telecom providers using LayerOne Exchanges to buy and sell connectivity services. The reason is simple -- we provide the ideal one-stop shop for local, long-haul and Internet optical transport."
