Carrier Ethernet Equipment Is Very Much Exciting These Days

2:45 PM -- Those wallflowers over at Hatteras Networks Inc. asked me to please, please, please run some photos of the cocktail party they threw at Bellagio in Las Vegas last week.

I didn't go to the party. I was in my room, in bed, covers drawn, hiding from the razor-sharp fangs of telecom recession. But I'm glad to see not everyone shares my delicate constitution.

Another thing: I'm not sure who to credit for the photos, but I told my attorney to keep checking the mail in case we hear from them.

Meanwhile, enjoy the barely-safe-for-work pics:

About the Author(s)

Phil Harvey

Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading

Phil Harvey has been a Light Reading writer and editor for more than 18 years combined. He began his second tour as the site's chief editor in April 2020.

His interest in speed and scale means he often covers optical networking and the foundational technologies powering the modern Internet.

Harvey covered networking, Internet infrastructure and dot-com mania in the late 90s for Silicon Valley magazines like UPSIDE and Red Herring before joining Light Reading (for the first time) in late 2000.

After moving to the Republic of Texas, Harvey spent eight years as a contributing tech writer for D CEO magazine, producing columns about tech advances in everything from supercomputing to cellphone recycling.

Harvey is an avid photographer and camera collector – if you accept that compulsive shopping and "collecting" are the same.
