NOVEMBER 28, 2007 -- INX Inc. says it has been selected to design and deploy an optical network for a major U.S. metropolitan area. The location of the network was not revealed.
As part of an effort to increase business continuity and improve services for its citizens, the city selected INX to design and deploy a citywide Cisco Systems-based optical network that will provide transport services to over 200 locations throughout the city. INX says the fully resilient network will help control costs and increase efficiencies by providing network redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities to key city offices for applications including voice, video, and data. The city-owned private network will comprise Cisco ONS Equipment and provide an OC-192 backbone ring with multiple OC-48 sub-rings.
The contract is valued at approximately $3.8 million in product and $500,000 in services revenue for INX.
