PacketFront Enhances Luxury Living in California Condos with Fiber-to-the-Home Technology

    Digital Streets deploys PacketFront Technology to Provide Residents with
Complete Triple Play Services

    FORT WAYNE, IND., April 30 /CNW/ - PacketFront, the pioneer in
open-access broadband networking, has announced that Digital Streets, a
Californian services company which provides enhanced television, telephone,
Internet and community portal services over state-of-the-art networks to
residential communities, has deployed a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network,
using PacketFront technology and expertise. The network spans the prominent
Plaza Irvine project in Southern California, which encompasses two 15 story
high-rise towers of ultimate luxurious living, and gives residents complete
triple-play services with scope to open up the network in the near future. The
triple play services will be provided and maintained by Digital Streets.

    The Plaza Irvine project aims to give residents a unique style of living,
offering the ultimate in quality services and style. PacketFront's network
supports this goal by enabling the delivery of advanced television, telephone,
Internet and interactive IP services to everyone in the complex. The network
is expected to be expanded and opened up in the future to multiple competing
service providers, enhancing consumer choice.

    The key component in PacketFront's broadband solution is the
award-winning BECS(TM) control and provisioning system. BECS makes it possible
for operators to build and run fully automated broadband networks with
self-provisioning capabilities. These capabilities give users the option to
choose services for themselves without having to wait for a third party to
make the changes.

    "Working with PacketFront has enabled a swift and painless network build,
and now that it's fully up and running, we're particularly impressed by the
sheer simplicity of the BECS provisioning system," said Scott Musgrave, CEO of
Digital Streets. "PacketFront's technology is a key component in Digital
Streets' overall goal of installing state-of-the-art networks throughout
communities in the Western U.S., allowing us to provide enhanced triple play
services and more to our customer base. As part of our growth strategy, we
intend to go open-access in the near future, giving our customers even more
choices. We will be counting on the proven experience and expertise of
PacketFront to achieve this."

    "We're very pleased that Digital Streets chose to work with us on this
innovative project and look forward to working with the company more in the
future," said Tim Scott, Director of Sales & Marketing, PacketFront. "The
state-of-the-art Plaza Irvine towers are at the forefront of modern living and
we are delighted that our network is a component of the ultimate lifestyle
that the apartments aim to provide. There is no doubt that FTTH technology is
becoming more and more desirable, and this project is a key indication of
