We have it on good authority (Hélène, our designer, has just returned from her vacation there) that the 'High Roller' Ferris wheel is rapidly taking shape on the Las Vegas skyline. The multi-million dollar wheel – 100 feet taller than the London Eye – is our main story this issue, or more the fact that Colorado Wire & Cable Co has provided wire and tray cable for the wheel, located between the Flamingo and Harrah's hotel-casino. Denver-based Colorado supplied the electrical wire and control cable that will help power the 44,000lbs observation pods – all 28 of them. Read the full story on page nine. Don't miss the story of Alcatel-Lucent and SaskTel successfully trialling a fiber-optic data transmission of speeds up to 400G over a network originally built for 10G traffic. Catch this on page 14. We also turn our attention to the staging of IWCS in Charlotte, North Carolina, from 10 th to 13 th November. Some of the companies exhibiting can be found in our feature, which starts on page 44. Feel free to stop by our booth and pick up free CDs of wiredInUSA and copies of sister publications EuroWire and Wire & Cable ASIA. David Bell Editor #28 EDITOR
