Here is another press release from PLNS. I am getting a very positive feeling from these guys. They are clearly ramping up the PR machine. To me that means that they believe that they are going to have something to say as the year progesses. And if it sounds like the Wisconsin Telecomm association is small potatoes, in the world of independent telcos, it's not. Getting in at 6 seems like a great bet and one I have made.
Pliant Systems Declared WSTA Innovations 2000 Winner
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Pliant Systems Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PLNS - news) announced today that the Wisconsin
State Telecommunications Association named Pliant Systems the Innovations 2000 winner at the WSTA convention held in May. The company won the voting with
its Pliant 3000(TM) Integrated Access Platform.
The Innovations 2000 award recognizes products that provide new and innovative services to telecommunications carriers. Companies that are introducing new
products in 2000 are eligible for the award. This year's new products ranged from interface cards that provide new services to access systems such as the Pliant
3000. WSTA members from the more than 80 local telephone companies in Wisconsin participated in the voting.

designed to serve,'' said Craig Swinn, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Pliant Systems. ``The integrated ATM/TDM platform, with its distributed
deployment options providing traditional telephone as well as emerging broadband services, ideally fits the diverse network topologies of the suburban/rural local
exchange carrier market.''
