Ethernet Direct Selected as Official Supplier of Ethernet Switches for New World Trade Center
Ethernet Direct (News - Alert), a provider of industrial Ethernet switches, has announced a key role in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center as the selected Ethernet vendor for the project.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the tragic event, Ethernet Direct plans to donate five percent of all gross profits made in the month of September to the Twin (News - Alert) Towers Orphans Fund.
The Fund was founded on September 11, 2001 for the sole purpose of providing educational and welfare assistance to the children who were orphaned by the terrorist attacks. The Fund aims at providing long-term higher educational assistance and mental and physical healthcare assistance for children who lost parents in the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon, or onboard the four downed airliners, as well as the children of victims of future terrorist attacks.
Ten years after the 9/11 attacks destroyed the World Trade Center, an 80–story glass and steel tower is rising from the ashes of Ground Zero. After years of inertia, and prolonged disputes between government agencies, insurers and a developer who had just taken out a 99–year lease on the towers when they were toppled, the development of the trade center is substantial, and the tallest tower can now be seen for miles, according to a press release.
