MTA employs Hatteras for wireless backhaul, business services

Matanuska Telephone Association (MTA), a 57-year old Alaskan-based telephone cooperative, is tapping into its already well-established copper resources to fulfill its EVDO wireless backhaul and Ethernet services goals.

MTA is leveraging Hatteras' mid-band Ethernet and Pseudowire Plus products, including its HN6100 and HN600, which can deliver simultaneous native TDM Voice and Ethernet traffic over copper, delivering greater volumes of carrier-class Channelized DS-3 and DS1/E1 based services, as well as high-speed Ethernet services.  

Each of these products will enable MTA to deliver point-to-multipoint symmetrical Ethernet bandwidth over its existing copper network infrastructure.

What MTA's deployment of Hatteras' EoC gear means for wireless backhaul and business services means that they can meet immediately in areas where they might not be able to justify the business case today for fiber, but gain the efficiencies of using Ethernet.
