Newport Beach, California (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
Positron Access Solutions, the leader in enabling high bandwidth over copper pairs (asymmetric/symmetric MIMO-on-DMT technology), announced today that Bruce Hammergren has been appointed Vice President of Sales for North America. Hammergren, a 30-year veteran in the telecom industry, will spearhead the rapid sales growth of Positron’s Aktino bonded-copper solutions, which deliver 100 Mbps Ethernet services over copper infrastructure. Hammergren has held senior positions in sales and marketing, particularly with copper-based telecom solutions, with PairGain, Motorola, Ericsson and Actelis.
“Positron’s Aktino bonded-copper product family is clearly the right solution at this time of exploding Ethernet bandwidth requirements for businesses, LTE wireless cell sites and to enable high-speed residential internet access,” said Hammergren. “This is an exciting time for me to come on board and bring the Aktino solution to customers across North America. Positron is the uncontested leader in delivering the highest bandwidth over copper backed by solid support and an excellent track record in bringing carrier-grade telecom solutions to the market.”
“Since acquiring Aktino in May 2009, we have experienced significant growth in North America and Europe. We are very pleased to add Bruce’s leadership and experience to our management team,” says Claude Brisson, COO of Positron. “Bruce has worked extensively with our customers in North America throughout his career and understands their priorities and objectives. He is looking forward to sharing his insights and knowledge with our customers as Positron redefines the role of copper in delivering high bandwidth Ethernet services.”
With the Aktino MIMO-on-DMT bonded-copper solution, service providers can instantly and profitably deliver up to 100 Mbps carrier-grade Ethernet in the last mile, instead of incurring the high costs and delays of deploying fiber. In today’s competitive environment, speedy service turn-up and flexibility to grow bandwidth are paramount to signing up new customers. Positron’s Aktino solution makes it possible.
