C-COR.net Wins Malaysian Contract
STATE COLLEGE, Pa., June 25 -- C-COR.net said that it was part of a successful consortium bid to develop a broadband network in Indonesia for Pt. Indosat Mega Media (IMM). During the first phase of the contract, C-COR.net will supply equipment for the construction of a hybrid fiber coax (HFC) system passing 15,000 Indonesian homes from two headends -- one in Jakarta and one in Surabaya.

The network will offer video and cable modem service to subscribers. IMM anticipates eventually expanding the project to include more than 400,000 homes passed.
The winning consortium includes Fujikura Ltd. of Japan serving as the optical fiber manufacturer; Pt. Sumitomo Indonesia of Indonesia and Sumitomo Corp. of Japan serving as the main contractor to IMM and total project coordinator; and Pan Asian Systems (PAS) of Hong Kong supplying signal distribution equipment.
