2 December 2003 Atlanta, GA Lightwave -- Wave7 Optics today announced that their Last Mile Link fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) system has been selected to provide voice, video, data, telemetry and security monitoring services for the 10,000 residences at the Bosque Real golf course development just outside Mexico City.

2 December 2003 Atlanta, GA Lightwave -- Wave7 Optics today announced that their Last Mile Link fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) system has been selected to provide voice, video, data, telemetry and security monitoring services for the 10,000 residences at the Bosque Real golf course development just outside Mexico City. The first phase of the Bosque Real project is almost exclusively residential. Phase two will include school, shopping, recreation, medical facilities and mixed-use commercial development. Telecommunications service provider Acelera is developing the Bosque Real FTTx network.

"We are designing Bosque Real to be the most technologically-advanced development in Latin America," said Victor Barreiro, vice president of Bosque Real Country Club Services. "For this technology showcase, we chose the Last Mile Link from Wave7 as the most economical and technically-advanced platform for advanced optical broadband services."

"Interest in the LML [Last Mile Link] outside the United States is growing rapidly," said Tom Tighe, chief executive officer of Wave7 Optics. "Wave7 has established a worldwide network of VARs [value-added resellers] and OEMs and these channel partners are proving very successful in gaining international interest in our solution."

The LML is an IP and Ethernet standards-based passive optical networking (PON) system that provides all traditional "carrier-grade" telephone services, high-speed data and both analog and digital video. Featuring privacy and security encryption techniques and quality of service mechanisms designed for business applications, the LML overcomes the high-fiber counts, limited distance range and high central office equipment costs that have stymied the growth of FTTx systems.

The LML provides up to 300 times more capacity than competing broadband systems, such as DSL or cable modem, at the same or lower installation cost. It also provides twice the sustainable downstream bandwidth per subscriber and eight times the sustainable upstream bandwidth per subscriber compared to ATM PON FTTx solutions. Commercial customer high-speed bandwidth applications can range up to much greater speeds, potentially to Wave 7 Optics' 500-Mbit/sec capability. The LML uses standard data and telephone interfaces at its customer premise devices accommodating existing home and business telephone and computer systems, meaning customers do not have to buy new equipment to get on the new network.
