Aktino Expands Sales Team for EMEA

Aktino, a supplier of Carrier Ethernet and broadband services over bonded copper, has retained members of the same sales team previously responsible for Worldwide Packets' presence in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The team of experienced sales directors and sales engineers is led by Andy Charalambous, the former international vice president at Worldwide Packets when it was bought by Ciena in March 2008. With him on the team are Marco Berkheij and Dolf Godlieb.

Aktino has been recently building a presence in Europe, and its bonded copper systems have been in trials at three Tier 1 carries there. With the addition of this team, the company is now placing as much emphasis on the global market as it does in North America.

Aktino systems can provide up to 100 Mbps of bandwidth over existing copper infrastructure to a distance of 12,000 feet (3.7 km) from the central office, with fiber-like reliability. This enables symmetric or asymmetric Ethernet services. The reach can also be doubled using the company's latest repeater solutions.
