Hatteras sells EoC repeaters to Utah telco

Hatteras Networks has added repeaters to its Ethernet-over-copper solution to boost its transmission reach from several thousand feet to more than 25 miles. That latter distance is achieved by using the maximum number of repeaters--eight. Utah's South Central Communications is the vendor's first service provider customer for the repeaters. Telephony reports that the new capability for Hatteras is one that competitor Actelis Networks has had in place for some time. The EoC market has been seen as a potential beneficiary of a tougher economic environment in which carriers may be looking to lengthen the life of their copper and limit investments in new fiber.
