Mid-Atlantic Broadband Co-op Deploys Infinera in Stimulus Project

Mid-Atlantic Broadband Cooperative (MBC), which provides optical transport services across Virginia, has deployed Infinera for a federally-funded broadband stimulus project.

MBC won a $16 million grant in the first round of the federal broadband stimulus program for a proposal to deliver advanced open-access middle-mile services for 121 K-12 schools in southern Virginia.

MBC deployed an Infinera DTN network on its 800-mile regional network providing middle-mile connectivity in southern Virginia and to key carrier interconnection points in northern Virginia and the southeast.
