Lite Access’ Yukon Based Partner, Total North, set to Install FTTH for Northwestel in Whitehorse
September 8, 2016 – Vancouver, British Columbia, LITE ACCESS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (the “Company”) (CSE: LTE, Pink Sheets: LTCCF), a total integrated fibre optic solutions provider, has been selected to deliver a Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network deployment with the Company’s certified sales and installation partner Total North Communications Ltd. (“Total North”) in the Yukon Territory, Canada.
Further to the news release dated June 23, 2016, Total North has placed a subsequent order for Microduct, fibre, tools and completion of the training for Lite Access’ proven air blown fibre technology.
The pilot FTTH rollout will enable high speed connectivity provided by Northwestel to 70 homes using the most cost-effective, timely and non-intrusive manner, namely air blown fibre deployed using micro-trench methodologies.
“Working with Lite Access has provided us with the most cost effective and innovative solution for fibre connectivity available,” states Dan Johnson of Total North. “Not only do we have a proven technology that is considered the solution of choice for fibre connectivity, we also have a team at Lite Access that supports and assists us going forward with any and all types of network designs as well as least invasive methods of installation.”
Michael Priest, Chief Commercial Officer of Lite Access, states, “Being able to present to our partners and clients a proven and future proof solution that removes issues faced by others having problems with conventional construction and inflexible technologies is our goal at Lite Access. Importantly, with more and more partners and clients realizing the benefits of our technologies and methods of deployment, cities are becoming more aware of the advantages and are now insisting on micro-trench, micro-drill installation methodologies over the traditional ‘digging up street and laying thousands of miles of cables’ approach.”
