Hatteras Extends EFM to 25+ Miles with Repeaters

Hatteras Networks introduced its HN239 Repeater and HNLPM8 Line Power Modules for its EFM product family. The new repeaters enable the use of Mid-Band Ethernet beyond the traditional distance limitations of copper services, reaching sites more than 25 miles (40km) from the nearest serving office. They are designed to extend higher rates for Ethernet business services and mobile backhaul applications, enabling service providers to bring much greater bandwidth over bonded copper to remote cell towers and DSLAMs.

"With the Hatteras Repeaters now installed, we are able to more cost-effectively deliver business services to our customers living and working in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona at far greater rates and distances than traditional T1s," said Jody Davis, Inside Plant Manager at South Central Communications, one of the largest employers and telecommunication companies in Southern Utah. "Installation was very easy and efficient and we plan to deploy more Hatteras Repeaters in the future to meet growing customer demands."
