FIBER OPTIC PROJECT.

Corning Inc. on Dec. 10 announced that fiber optic cable and connectivity products from Corning Cable Systems are now being installed for use in Panama's 400-km national fiber optic backbone project:

In Nov. 2002, Consorcio Andino awarded Corning Cable Systems a multimillion dollar contract for its fiber optic cable and connectivity products. The installation of these products recently began. Etesa is a state-owned full-service power and telecommunications provider in Panama. Consorcio Andino, based in Panama, was awarded a turnkey contract with Etesa for delivery and installation of equipment for the optical transmission technology needed to construct a link connecting several cities in Panama;

The project connects Guasquitas to Panama City, crossing the Panama Canal and providing fiber connectivity throughout the network. It is part of an overall project by Etesa to build transmission lines to distribute power and telcommunications from the western part of the country to other areas within Panama, including Panama City.
