RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Silver Star Telecom has turned up a new level of advanced Ethernet services using the Hatteras Networks Mid-Band Ethernet platform to "fatten up" copper lines with fiber-like capacity. Now available to wholesale and retail customers throughout select metro markets in Oregon and Washington, Silver Star Telecom's advanced Ethernet service will cater to speed-starved business customers at copper-fed locations.

Adopting the Hatteras' Mid-Band Ethernet solution to serve business and enterprise customers over twisted-pair copper readily complements Silver Star Telecom's existing Ethernet offerings over DS1 and DS3 circuits and to fiber-connected locations. Silver Star Telecom provides this Ethernet service to single-site locations within its copper footprint, and can connect multiple local area networks (LANs) across metro boundaries to create wide area network (WAN) connectivity.

"Our initial Ethernet deployment with Hatteras Networks in the Portland area has been highly successful and very well-received by our wholesale and enterprise customers," explained Clint Warta, president and founder of Silver Star Telecom. "Hatteras Networks' carrier-class Mid-Band Ethernet solutions enable us to provide Ethernet and IP services in excess of 36Mbps symmetrical to customer locations without access to fiber. This new service is a huge benefit to those business customers who desire advanced Ethernet services but have been previously constrained by existing copper facilities."
