3/31/00 Enron Broadband Services Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Enron Corp. (Houston, TX), announced a multi-year contract to lease high-capacity bandwidth to Datacom's carrier services division, Orbis1.

Enron offers long-haul bandwidth capacity--in several dense wavelength increments and between major city pairs that exist on the company's coast-to-coast network--in a product line called Advanced Fiber Transport Solutions (AFTS). AFTS leverages DWDM technology to expand the capacity of the existing fiber in Enron's optical network.

Orbis1 will use the leased capacity to serve their customers through a new optical fiber corridor from Houston to New Orleans, connecting points of presence in Houston and Beaumont, TX, and Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans, LA.
