"After several months of working with third party communication consultants and industry specialists, we were convinced that no one company could produce an all inclusive fiber map of our four million square foot commercial real estate development.
We had decided we would have to work on our own to complete this fiber mapping when we contacted Fiberworks in hopes of taking what we knew about fiber routes and simply mapping it out for us.
Your company handled this job with accurate detail and speed.I plan to have an ongoing working relationship with the Fiberworks team."

Patricia Medlin, Director of Technology for Whiteville City Schools, coordinated the project that integrated extended-distance Gigabit Ethernet technology into a MAN.The Whiteville Gigabit Ethernet network operates at 1,000 Mbps, offering ten times more bandwidth than Fast Ethernet.The network supports voice, video and data communications, and links all four schools and the administration building into one seamless high-speed network.A school wide e-mail system, remote network monitoring, voice-over-IP telephony and distance learning are just a few features of the EMAN.By combining Gigabit Ethernet and fiber technology, the school district's network is now capable of meeting both current and future bandwidth demands.When Medlin first envisioned her integrated solution, she knew that a fiber-based network would provide the maximum performance, but she believed it would exceed the project's budget.To her delight, the premier solution of an EMAN Gigabit Ethernet network with fiber-to-the-classroom was also the most affordable.The Whiteville EMAN will provide ample bandwidth for current and impending applications and provides the added advantage of eliminating the monthly expense for leased lines through a local telephone company.

"Our E-MAN enables students, teachers and parents to access a wealth of information and brings a new level of advanced teaching methods to our school systems," said Patricia Medlin, director of technology, Whiteville City Schools."The huge bandwidth provided by the fiber network, coupled by the wire-speed routing of the Alcatel OmniCore 5000 family of routing switches provides us with the platform to cost-effectively grow as our school district embraces new multimedia technologies."

The E-MAN project was motivated by a collective need to provide networking capabilities to the district while simultaneously reducing long-term recurring costs.Integrating voice, video and data communications over a privately-owned fiber infrastructure eliminated the huge expense for leased lines.The Whiteville E-MAN is expected to pay for itself in three years and will continue to provide ample bandwidth for any new applications that come along.
...
"We looked at all the leading technologies available and decided to go with a Gigabit Ethernet solution from Alcatel because it costs less and is faster," Medlin of the Whiteville City School district adds."Alcatel provides us with an ideal solution that¹s robust, reliable and easy to manage."
