TheClarksville Department of Electricity(CDE) will use the Company's LightningEdge® Carrier Ethernet solution to connect the City's residents and businesses to its electrical utility, creating a true "Broadband Community" that will improve quality of life and spur economic development. The FTTH network will reduce Department of Electricity operating costs on existing utility services while enabling the City to deliver new, revenue generating quad-play (video, voice, data, and mobility) broadband services.

In addition, the architecture facilitates the deployment of advanced automated control and management systems being deployed by utilities worldwide.
