Nortel Bundles ANDA CPE into its Metro Ethernet Solution

Nortel has expanded its relationship with ANDA Networks to include the provision of its Ethernet network termination equipment into the Nortel Metro Ethernet Networks portfolio. This will allow Nortel to provide an end-to-end solution for service providers to offer hosted E-VPN services to businesses.

Specifically, Nortel's Metro Ethernet solutions now include ANDA's EtherReach portfolio which provides an extension of E-VPN services over fiber and copper-based networks. The ANDA products can be bundled with Nortel's Carrier Ethernet portfolio -- which has over 100 customers globally. They can also be bundled with Nortel's Optical Ethernet portfolio which features the Optical Multiservice Edge (OME) -- which has over ten thousand units deployed.http://www.nortel.comhttp://www.andanetworks.com
