8 October 2003 Austin, TX, and Vancouver, Canada Lightwave -- Metro optical solutions provider OnFiber announced today its plan to offer customers solutions that include fSONA Communications' SONAbeam optical wireless technology.

"OnFiber's ability to respond to customer needs quickly is a key component of our success," asserts Michael Guess, chief operating officer of OnFiber. "fSONA's wireless solution is an important tool for OnFiber in cases where we need to extend the network, but cost or geography prohibit the use of fiber infrastructures. In addition to being quick and economical to deploy, SONAbeam's optical wireless technology has the bandwidth potential to maximize the benefits of OnFiber's metro networks," he adds.

fSONA's optical wireless systems provide carrier-class availability, giving service providers like OnFiber an effective option for extending their network to remote customer locations. fSONA's advanced technology is virtually impossible to intercept, say company representatives, making it secure to the standards of government, military, and corporate entities.

"Wireless solutions based on optical technology are able to transmit at very high bandwidths--up to 2.5 Gbits/sec--that exceed traditional wireless capabilities, making them ideal for extending high-speed fiber-optic networks," reports Theresa Carbonneau, president and chief executive officer of fSONA. "OnFiber has established metro networks in key areas that can be rapidly extended with fSONA's solution for broadband access. Working together, fSONA and OnFiber quickly respond to customer demands."
