A New Wired TAC on the DNCC

A New TAC on the DNCC
CNET Article:

Now you would think Denver was a pretty wired city to begin with, but a whole new infrastructure
had to be in
place to handle the new technolgy demands of this Democratic Convention.

For example:
"The upgrades required approximately 3,344 miles of single strands of fiber and 140 miles of single strands of copper and coaxial cable.

Qwest also added approximately 2,600 additional data lines and 3,400 voice grade circuits to serve both the Pepsi Center and Invesco Field. Both venues are installed with video equipment with the capacity to to handle 130 simultaneous video feeds."

"As part of its planning process, the DNCC created a Technology Advisory Council, made up of representatives from Qwest, Microsoft, Cisco, Google, AT&T, Level3, Comcast, EchoStar, Hewlett-Packard, Symantec, as well as Denver city officials and Colorado state officials."
