SCN Standing Committee on Nutrition (UN) (TM)) system for both copper and fiber broadband deployments has been accepted for listing by the United States Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service (RUS). Acceptance on the RUS List of Materials means that qualified RUS borrowers can use long-term, low-interest loans funded by the U.S. federal government to purchase Pannaway's SCN, which enables the delivery of "Triple Play" voice, video and data services to rural subscribers - over a single broadband connection.
The RUS broadband program may provide rural loans to Independent Operating Carriers (IOCs) at interest rates and terms that are more favorable than those generally available from the private sector. The program is designed to keep costs down, enabling customers in rural areas to have access to the same advanced broadband services as those offered by the larger regional and national carriers.
"RUS provides a great service to rural carriers and their broadband subscribers and we are honored to be a part of such a groundbreaking initiative," said Mike Skubisz, CTO (Chief Technical Officer) The executive responsible for the technical direction of an organization.

"Our award-winning SCN system and all of its inherent next-generation capabilities can now be made available to rural IOCs regardless of their plan to fund the project."
"RUS acceptance is an important milestone for Pannaway," said Kermit Ross, president of Millennium Marketing. "Having Pannaway's products listed as acceptable for use on RUS-financed projects opens the door to the most dynamic and proactive part of the industry when it comes to applying IP technology to telecommunications. The independent telcos always grasp, accept and apply new technologies much more rapidly than the big telcos. They get a lot of encouragement and guidance from the RUS, NECA NECA National Electrical Contractors Association
NECA National Exchange Carrier Association
NECA National Electrical and Communications Association (Australia)
NECA National Electricity Code Administrator (Australia) and some of the smartest consulting engineers in the industry. Pannaway's product is scaleable and versatile enough to fit just about any independent telco's network. With the RUS credential in hand, I think Pannaway will take off like a shot."
