April 5, 2005 Denver-- Intercell International Corporation, through its subsidiary Brunetti DEC, announced today that Brunetti DEC has been commissioned by Village of Jackson, WI, to perform a preliminary fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) design and feasibility study. The study will determine the financial ramifications of installing fiber optics to the premise capable of delivering voice, video, data and wireless services to the area's businesses and residents.
"The decision to contract Brunetti DEC for this study was made in part due to their strength and experience in working with a variety of communities, large and small," said Del Beaver, Village administrator. "In addition, Brunetti can take the community all the way from feasibility study through design, engineering, construction and operation."
The Village of Jackson, located 25 miles north of Milwaukee, includes a 400 acre business district that includes a 50 acre bio incubator park that hosts several medical facilities. The combined service area is approximately between five and six square miles, with a potential market value of $400 million.
"The feasibility and design study will provide the Village of Jackson with the ability to identify the best growth opportunities for its community by detailing the economics with technical evaluations," said Charles Brunetti, chief executive of both Intercell International and Brunetti DEC. "This will allow them to make more informed business decisions and avoid potential financial pitfalls. The main advantage of a utility-owned broadband network is to give the community control of their own technology infrastructure, which in turn provides support to local job growth."
Intercell International also announced that a project awarded to Brunetti DEC and commissioned by the county of Los Alamos, NM, to pursue a $20 million fiber-optic network for the community was suspended by the county at this time.
Intercell International Corporation is a Denver-based holding company focused primarily in the technology arena.
