Wave7 Goes Indy

ATLANTA -- Wave7 Optics Inc., a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home or -premises (FTTH/FTTP) equipment for residential and business services, today announced that the City of Auburn, Ind. has selected the Trident7™ Optical Access Platform for a new municipal FTTP network. Construction will begin this month, with first priority given to connecting the school system. All parties expect that by the end of November 2006 approximately 4000 students, teachers and staff across four school facilities will be learning, teaching and collaborating over a 500Mbps secure Wave7 Optics powered network. The increased bandwidth also is allowing the school system to roll out a much anticipated attendance application.

Subsequently, upon completing the rest of the site engineering and related logistics, the City of Auburn will begin construction of the network’s second phase in 1Q 2007. The new network will provide telephone and high-speed data services to all of the City’s business districts, including more than 1200 homes and businesses. Deployment is expected to be complete by the end of 2007. During the final stages of this phase, the City will evaluate and determine whether to offer similar services to all residents.

The City of Auburn decided to proceed with a city-wide FTTP deployment after much public interest and a successful year-long run providing FTTP-based services to several businesses with Wave7’s Last Mile Link™ (LML) system.

“Wave 7’s LML has provided a rock solid network for our inaugural customers since first brining them online over 20 months ago,” said Chris Schweitzer, Auburn’s IT Manager. “The reliability, quality and low total cost of ownership of the Wave7 solution were determining factors in further deploying the product with our community wide business deployments. We are very excited about the Trident7 platform and the added functionality and flexibility it will provide in our community’s network deployment.”
