November 29, 2005 Spokane Valley, WA -- OnFiber has selected World Wide Packets' LightningEdge Carrier Ethernet platform to provide its business customers with a carrier-grade network access infrastructure supporting on-demand Ethernet service. OnFiber says the platform will allow it to provide multiple gigabits of service while also enabling an alternative to T-1 and other legacy services.
OnFiber says it selected the World Wide Packets platform because of the platform's unique ability to provide automated provisioning for simplified integration and maintenance. OnFiber's Ethernet services range from 10 to 1000 Mbit/sec; with the platform's rate limiting feature, increasing customers' bandwidth from the low end of the service offering can be accomplished remotely.
"Our implementation of World Wide Packets equipment enables us to offer our growing business customer-base both scaleable and fixed Ethernet services at a competitive price point," comments OnFiber vice president Paul Niezgoda. "We are seeing continued demand for Ethernet services, and World Wide Packets was able to meet all of our criteria, which ranged from scalability and reliability to provisioning and cost."
"OnFiber's selection of World Wide Packets continues to demonstrate our ability to provide service providers with cost-effective and scaleable Carrier Ethernet services," concludes David Curry, president and CEO of World Wide Packets. "OnFiber's business model continues to impress, and we are excited to be playing such a strategic role in their current and future growth with business customers."
