IRVINE, Calif. -- Aktino, a leader in delivering high bandwidth Carrier Ethernet and broadband services over bonded copper, has retained members of the same sales team previously responsible for the market success of the former Worldwide Packets to lead the expansion of its presence in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The team of experienced sales directors and sales engineers is led by Andy Charalambous, a 20-year telecommunications industry veteran and former international vice president at Worldwide Packets when it was bought by Ciena in March 2008. With him on the team are Marco Berkheij and Dolf Godlieb.

“We are seeing a tremendous demand for Carrier Ethernet over copper in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and we chose to move decisively to capture this high growth market” said Lonnie Martin, Aktino’s CEO. “It was serendipity and good fortune that enabled us to land in one fell swoop a team with this kind of Carrier Ethernet selling experience and success in EMEA markets.”
