Vancouver, BC (July 9, 2014) – The new fibre-optic ELITE certification of AGC, addresses the growing green-technology demand in Canada for the design, build and expansion of POL networks. With a mandate to grow industry awareness within the natural resource, education, tourism, hospitality, healthcare, retail, business, government and entertainment sectors in Western Canada, while showcasing the company’s tactical expertise, AGC has aligned with Zhone Technologies and its FiberLAN brand. This elevated expertise will support the growing demand for greener technologies (i.e., POL – Passive Optical LAN) in BC, Western Canada and beyond. To achieve the recent certification, the AGC team collaborated with Zhone via numerous online training seminars in early 2014 and on-site exams in Oakland, California USA.
