- This is the first movie with a 100% authentic network. Belden (the #1 manufacturer of Cabling & Fiber Optics) trained the cast on how properly to run and set up their network, as it is done in real life. Anything not seen done by the cast was completed by Belden, making the Fiber Optic network 100% functional. This is the first time in the history of movies where a network was built in accordance with all government and industrial regulations.
