Switch" in Los Angeles, California and to All Mobile Video in
Carterette, New Jersey. This gives On Call's QuickSPOT clients the

video connectivity will also be used for occasional video services provided by
On Call's fleet of rental terminals and network of satellite uplink service providers.
On the West Coast, On Call installed a terrestrial
connection to The Switch in Los Angeles from its teleport location in Orange
County. The Switch Los Angeles serves as

their teleport with direct connectivity to major New York POP's such as

additional facilities greatly expand the reach of On Call's QuickSPOT satellite bandwidth on demand network. While the service has offered its customers
tremendous flexibility in terms of access to space and automated operations, it
has been limited in its ability to deliver video to diverse locations due to
the use of proprietary hardware. The fiber connectivity now allows delivery of
video content originating within the QuickSPOT network to virtually any
organization connected to a terrestrial fiber network in the US and many
international destinations in SDI format in both standard and high definition.
QuickSPOT satellite bandwidth on demand network operates on Intelsat's Horizons
I and Horizons II Ku-band satellites. The network provides domestic service to
affiliate stations around the country including affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC and
