California: Los Angeles' municipal power utility deploys optical Ethernet

"The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has deployed a metropolitan optical network solution from Nortel Networks to provide optical broadband services to city departments, carriers, Internet Service Providers and enterprises in the Greater Los Angeles Area. This new network -- dubbed Los Angeles Optical Network or LAON -- provides resilient, high-speed, on-demand access to virtually unlimited bandwidth for support of community and economic development initiatives."

"'As a city department, we seek new ways to serve our community,' said Bruce Hamer, director of the Los Angeles DWP Fiber Optic Enterprise. 'Our optical network gives us a unique opportunity to leverage the assets we have as an electric and water utility to accelerate business development and improve community services in Los Angeles.'"
