Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 23, 2007
Adding to the success of LS Networks' state wide Ethernet service, the company is announcing today the ability to offer Ethernet First Mile access to small to medium Oregon businesses.
LS Networks is using Hatteras Network's Mid-Band Ethernet solution to provide businesses, which currently don't have access to fiber, with access to metro Ethernet services over existing copper facilities. LS Networks will be able to connect more companies and build upon their Wide Area Ethernet (WAE) private networks. The WAE will deliver and aggregate advanced Ethernet services to retail and other business customers that are connected to the public network with copper. In addition, LS Networks is also leveraging the existing statewide optical network for backhaul and transport applications.
"While LS Networks is well known for our fiber solutions, it is not always cost-effective for the enterprise business space. Hatteras Networks' technology has enabled an alternate solution to bring the value of our services to a broader base of customers.," - said Michael Weidman President and CEO of LS Networks.
"This service is an excellent compliment to LS Networks existing Wide Area Ethernet service in the state of Oregon," said Rick Malone, Principal at Vertical Systems Group. "LS Networks is among the regional providers we're tracking due to the company's focus on delivering high-quality Ethernet services to enterprise customers."
"Mid-Band Ethernet solutions provide carriers with the opportunity to expand their offerings with higher-value Ethernet services to new business customers of any size," said Gary Bolton, Vice President of Marketing and PLM at Hatteras Networks. "By using Hatteras Networks' Mid-Band Ethernet solution, LS Networks is providing a compelling competitive offering to customers not currently connected to the fiber network."
We're pleased that LS Networks chose Hatteras HN series to supply rural Oregon business with Ethernet solutions." said Gary Bolton, Vice President of Marketing and PLM.
