Virginia: World Wide Packets supplies gear for Danville Power & Light's municipal backbone system

"Feb. 10, 2004--World Wide Packets, the leading provider of Ethernet Access networking solutions, today announced that its LightningEdge suite has been selected for deployment by the City of Danville, Virginia to provide access to a fiber optic network serving 100 local government, public school and utility locations throughout the City. The current deployment is capable of growing into a network to ultimately serve over 50,000 residents and 8,000 businesses. The network will also connect into Virginia Tech's eCorridors as that project is deployed. By covering an entire geographic region with a fiber optic network, eCorridors creates a compelling competitive advantage for communities. The network is supported by Danville Power & Light, which is responsible for installing the fiber optic cable network."

World Wide Packets' LightningEdge equipment uses active Ethernet technology.
