RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC and BARCELONA -- Hatteras Networks, the Mid-Band Ethernet™ market, technology and services leader, today announced that it has formed a partnership with ATL, a leading value-added business development partner with offices in Hungary and Romania. ATL is the premier system integrator of fiber-based Metro Ethernet equipment in the region and a preferred supplier of Metro Ethernet equipment in Central Europe.

ATL will initially target incumbent and alternative operators that are delivering business services as well as those targeting 3G wireless backhaul applications. In particular, ATL sees immediate opportunity to replace the thousands of E1 lines used today to backhaul 3G traffic from cellular networks with Ethernet backhaul. With Hatteras Networks solutions deployed, network operators will be able to easily satisfy the bandwidth, resiliency and reliability demands 3G operators require going forward.

“Hatteras Networks Mid-Band Ethernet equipment is the ideal complement to fiber-based Metro Ethernet services network operators are deploying today throughout Central Europe,” said András Nagy, General Director of ATL. “We are at the beginning of a very large market shift for traditional as well as alternative operators as they look to better leverage the copper network to deliver valuable services to business customers and to support emerging 3G Ethernet backhaul.”
