Gallatin, MO, 10 May 2002 – WideBand Corporation (OTCBB: ZWBC) and GovConnection, Inc. have joined forces to offer WideBand Networking products to State and Federal Government users. WideBand’s Gigabit Ethernet products allow users to upgrade to Gigabit speeds without the need of rewiring their premises. Now, for the first time, these products are available on GSA through GovConnection.
WideBand Corporation has developed a new line of Gigabit Ethernet products which have the ability of working over older cables, saving users the cost of rewiring. Some government facilities have Category 3 cable in place and cannot upgrade their wiring, since the building walls contain asbestos, which would be exposed during the rewiring process. WideBand products will now allow these users to upgrade to Gigabit Ethernet without rewiring.
“We are thrilled,” explained Dr. Roger Billings, President of WideBand Corporation, “to be entering this market with GovConnection. They have distinguished themselves as the market leader for rapid response and solid support. They are the ideal partner for WideBand Corporation, as we expand into this important market.”
