re: Overture & Hatteras Gang Up on Carrier Ethernet

Craig, you’re spot on as usual. For both 2008 and 2009 EFM bonded-copper EADs (Ethernet Access Devices), Actelis had a substantial lead in the market, according to Infonetics Research. Read More>  Additionally, Frost & Sullivan has ranked Actelis #1 since 2007.

re: Overture & Hatteras Gang Up on Carrier Ethernet


The Hatteras and Overture *main* products don't overlap, but ... there must be corners of overlap somewhere in there. Both of them have gotten into fiber-based products, for instance; if I look at those products, would they look more similar?


Someone's pointed out that both companies do Ethernet-over-TDM, too.


Separately, about market share: Both companies call themselves No.1 in their respective markets, but Michael Howard points out that Actelis, not Hatteras, was No. 1 in bonded copper in 2009. He doesn't have the 2010 numbers done yet, so it's possible Hatteras overtook them.

It's a fair question:

re: Overture & Hatteras Gang Up on Carrier Ethernet


On Wednesday of this week, Heavy Reading is publishing our Carrier Ethernet Access Platform (CEAP) Quarterly Market Tracker, which has market share estimates for (1) Ethernet-over-fiber access switches/demarcation platforms; (2) Ethernet-over-TDM access circuit platforms; and (3) Ethernet-over-bonded copper pair platforms. Anyone interested in learning more about the Tracker can contact me at [email protected].


The estimated combined revenues of Overture + Hatteras create a CEAP market leader with significantly higher sales than the range mentioned in the above article. I think the combination makes a lot of sense from a portfolio point of view, a customer mix point of view, and a geographic market penetration point of view.


There is some overlap in terms of the Ethernet-over-TDM access capability on the Overture platforms and the Hatteras 6100 (combination of E-o-TDM access + E-o-bonded copper), but there's no E-o-bonded copper or E-o-fiber access overlap. Overture has had E-o-fiber access platforms, but Hatteras hasn't yet rolled out that capability on its multiservice platform on a GA basis.
