The Rural Utilities Service branch of the United States Department of Agriculture has granted "RUS Technical Acceptance" to the Fujitsu Network Communications FLASHWAVE 7500 ROADM, adding the platform to the RUS List of Acceptable Materials (Telecommunications).

The RUS provides independent and rural utilities and telecommunications service providers with low-interest financing to assist in the purchase of new equipment. The financing serves to keep deployment costs down, and the savings can be passed to consumers and foster competition with services offered by larger regional and national carriers. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 includes an allocation of more than $7 billion for broadband initiatives, and all Fujitsu platforms on the RUS List of Acceptable Materials are eligible for purchase using federal stimulus funds.
