Spain's SARENET Selects Overture for Ethernet-over-Copper

SARENET, an Internet service provider based in Spain, has selected Overture's 4000 and 400 platforms as the cornerstone of a new Ethernet-over-Copper deployment.  The service will offer customers up to 20 Mbps  (with capabilities up to 60Mbps) over unbundled local loops.

Overture’s EoC  enables Carrier Ethernet services over existing copper infrastructure. The Overture 400 demarcation device enables service providers and network operators to deliver feature-rich business broadband services to the last-mile, while the 4000 pay-as-you-grow aggregation platform delivers centralized management and switching for up to 120 of the Overture 400s.

“This new EoC deployment was a very heavily vetted product decision for us, as SARENET is extremely dedicated to customer satisfaction,” said Alberto Alvarez, director tecnico at SARENET.  “The Overture Carrier Ethernet solution provides increased bandwidth capability, flexible QoS and superior reliability as well as a number of service management tools that ensure we can deliver on our commitment to our valued customers.”
