ADVA Teams with Hatteras Networks on Ethernet Access

ADVA Optical Networking is enhancing its FSP 150 family of Ethernet access devices with the addition of Hatteras Networks' Ethernet-over-copper solutions. Hatteras Networks' solutions are fully integrated with ADVA Optical Networking's FSP Network Manager, and the integrated solution has been proven in global deployments.

The FSP 150 family provides devices for Ethernet demarcation, extension and aggregation to support the delivery of intelligent Ethernet services both in-region and out-of-region. The family enables providers to deliver profitable and differentiated Ethernet services over a wide range of transport options. Hatteras Networks' components deliver increased broadband over existing copper facilities.

"We are excited about our existing partnership with ADVA Optical Networking," said Kevin Sheehan, chief executive officer of Hatteras Networks. "They have strong relationships with many tier one carriers, a long and successful history and a world-renowned reputation for delivering value to these carriers. Together, we offer a true, end-to-end carrier Ethernet access solution."
