CHICAGO -- Hatteras Networks, the leading provider of high-bandwidth, last-mile Ethernet bonded copper access service platforms, today announced the general availability of an Ethernet over DS3 (EoDS3) uplink module for the HN4000. The HN4000 modular IO slot supports DS3, E3 and native Ethernet (copper and fiber) uplinks making the HN4000 the most cost effective service creation platform for carriers that need to deliver Ethernet business services directly from their existing SONET/SDH infrastructure. Ideal for carriers that aggressively deployed add-drop multiplexers (ADMs) over the last several years and have untapped DS3 connections, the HN4000 delivers the ability to turn services up directly without any changes to their existing infrastructure.

“Hatteras Networks is delivering products that solve real problems for service providers that want to introduce new Ethernet business services into their networks,” said Michael Howard, principal analyst and co-founder of Infonetics Research. “The new DS3 uplink opens up the Ethernet service opportunity to any provider, while avoiding the cost of upgrading existing ADMs to support Ethernet.”

Ideal for facilities-based competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) and independent operating companies (IOCs), the HN4000 now enables them to rapidly deploy Ethernet services from their existing infrastructure at the lowest total cost of ownership over costly hardware and software upgrades to existing ADMs and other equipment.

Hatteras Networks’ HN4000 is the first Ethernet over copper services platform to include modular network uplinks to streamline the introduction of Ethernet services into any carrier network. Featuring a wide range of redundant connectivity options that are ideal for carriers with a significant SONET/SDH infrastructure that are moving to Ethernet and IP-based services including Ethernet over SONET/SDH connectivity, software configurable Ethernet-over-DS3 and Ethernet-over-E3 connections, and software configurable for X.86 and Generic Framing Procedure (G.7041) encapsulation. For carriers with large metro Ethernet networks in place, the HN4000 supports100/1000Mbps Ethernet uplinks - CAT5 options for connectivity within the CO, and optical options for inter-office or remote terminal/cabinet applications.
