Mid-band Ethernet specialist Hatteras Networks announced at NXTcomm that it has landed two new contracts for deployment of its EtherFLEX mid-band Ethernet system. The deals involve Integra Telecom in the Northwest U.S. and NTS Workspace in Switzerland. Integra Telecom is using the Hatteras gear to launch new Metro Ethernet services over copper in Salt Lake City and Boise, offering speeds from 5 Mbps to 30 Mbps.
Hatteras also talked more at the show about its news EtherFlex operating system announced late last month. Gary Bolton, vice president of marketing at Hatteras, said during the show that the auto-provisioning and greater SLA capabilities enabled by the new operating system reflect the complexities of the ongoing carrier Ethernet expansion. "Our customers are moving to more sophisticated services and service layering with multiple SLAs," he said.
