Crowthorne, UK – 18 May 2009: Fibre Technologies Ltd (FTL) provide first line maintenance support to its installations on the Hertfordshire County Council cross-campus network. Fibre Technologies will provide a first line support service for the MRV Coarse Wave Division Multiplexer (CWDM) equipment deployed by FTL to maximise capacity on the Council network, and will ensure commitment to delivery of a four-hour-to-site service level agreement to the customer.
