March 16, 2004 Austin, TX--OnFiber Communications, Inc., a provider of metro network services, today announced AdaptiveBuild, an enterprise network infrastructure solution for multi-location companies with high bandwidth requirements.

As large corporations continue to face significant challenges in obtaining the optimal networking solution, OnFiber has created AdaptiveBuild as a means to provide custom, end-to-end, reliable infrastructure that supports high bandwidth business applications such as business continuity, storage and e-commerce. Because of its large metropolitan network footprint--the company owns and operates optical networks in 14 U.S. cities--OnFiber has the ability to leverage its own assets and integrate them with fiber from other providers across the country to cost effectively design and operate high performing, secure enterprise networks. The management and maintenance of AdaptiveBuild solutions are backed with service level agreements.

Several Fortune 500 companies including Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Cisco Systems and Sun Microsystems have already turned to OnFiber for AdaptiveBuild solutions to support their high capacity enterprise networking needs.

"Metro networks are complex and require extensive expertise to tie together disparate parts of the solution," said Patrick Matthews, senior analyst, Yankee Group. "OnFiber's metro expertise and supplier relationships enable them to effectively meet customer requirements by quickly delivering custom, managed, end-to-end networking solutions."

AdaptiveBuild network solutions are feasible because of OnFiber's knowledge of the metropolitan landscape and its expertise in network design and construction, as well as key competencies in ongoing monitoring and maintenance of these networks. OnFiber's access to a very broad range of assets allows the company to effectively incorporate other available fiber networks with its own metropolitan footprint to create solutions tailored to customer needs. This strategy reduces costs by minimizing the need for constructing new fiber routes and improves reliability by assuring full route diversity. Additionally, it gives OnFiber the ability to design, install and activate complex networks in as little as 60 days. Fast activation helps multi-location companies to begin transporting mission critical voice, video, and data quickly for improved return on investment.

"By using our experience and position in the metro market, we have changed the way networks are created and operated to provide a better alternative in enterprise networking," said Steve O'Hara, co-founder and executive vice president, OnFiber. "Having already proven the process with several existing customers, we expect significant future growth to come from enterprises, Internet-related companies, and carriers alike."

OnFiber utilized AdaptiveBuild for several customers across the country in 2003. In 2004, the company also plans to activate service for others currently in the network design phase.
