WASHINGTON, DC - December 11, 2001 - Enikia™, the fabless semiconductor manufacturer for powerline communications, used the occasion of the first Powerline Communications Conference to present the incredible new business opportunities now open to utility companies. The conference, hosted by the legal firm Troutman Sanders LLP, was held today in Washington, D.C.
Carmen Branca, Enikia's Executive Vice President of Operations, Powerline Services, emphasized how utility companies have substantial opportunities to develop their existing powerline infrastructure into a medium for broadband communications. When combined with the infrastructure owned by local utility companies, Enikia's technology enables valuable digital services to be delivered directly to the home.
Consumers consistently rate their local utility company as one of the most trusted and reliable providers of services. This new business opportunity will allow utilities to compete head-to-head with cable and DSL providers in the race to provide consumer-friendly access to broadband services.
