Hatteras Networks, a provider of broadband solutions over last-mile networks, has received certification from the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF).

Hatteras Ethernet products had to meet 262 “test cases” as conducted by Iometrix, a testing lab.

“Hatteras continues to play an active leadership role in the development of the key industry standards that will shape the carrier Ethernet services market,” said Matthew Squire, Hatteras Networks’ chief technology officer and an MEF board member. “Hatteras Networks is committed to delivering standards-based solutions to our global carrier customer base to help them streamline the introduction of high-bandwidth, high-value Ethernet services into their networks.”

Hatteras Networks enables network providers to deliver Ethernet Private Line (EPL), Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) and E-LAN (Ethernet multipoint-to-multipoint) services that meet MEF technical specifications.

Iometrix also certified Hatteras Networks for first-mile specifications in 2004.
