06/30/2007 - OneEighty Networks Offers Ethernet Innovation

The quest for new and innovative technology never stops at OneEighty Networks. “We are always ‘peeking over the edge’ to see what’s out there to better serve our clients,” says Terry Sticka, COO. To do this, OneEighty is constantly upgrading its infrastructure in a methodical fashion. Some of the upgrades are through acquisitions and some are made by adding the latest hardware and software technology platforms.

This May, OneEighty formed an alliance with Hatteras Networks of Research Triangle Park, N.C., allowing use of Hatteras’ Mid-Band Ethernet to provide higher-speed and greater bandwidth connectivity for their customers who are not on a fiber connection. Mid-band means telecom speeds that are faster than phone lines, but slower than broadband networks. Mid-Band Ethernet operates on multiple copper pairs and provides a logical structure inside the platform that allows for higher bandwidth. This is layer-2 Ethernet that is flexible and robust. It works up to three cable miles from any of OneEighty Networks co-location facilities. With the Hatteras platform, OneEighty can cost-effectively deliver up to 45 Mbps of Mid-Band Ethernet services over existing copper facilities, enabling businesses to migrate from legacy T1/E1 connections to transparent Ethernet services for voice and data business connectivity, infrastructure backhaul, and mobile wireless backhaul. "Hatteras Networks' Mid-Band Ethernet solutions enable us to deliver a comprehensive and feature-rich set of Ethernet service offerings over our existing copper infrastructure," says Sticka.

OneEighty Networks has rolled out Mid-Band Ethernet in Washington with plans to deploy in Idaho. End users can use the technology for the secure symmetric bandwidth required to deliver feature-rich applications for business intranets and extranets, and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Target Mid-Band Ethernet users are schools, hospitals and other institutions as well as businesses.

OneEighty Networks is a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) of facilities-based communications, delivering private line, data, and broadband Internet services over high-speed, fiber optic connections. They have thirty-five employees in Spokane and Walla Walla. Technical support is primarily based in Walla Walla, with field technicians placed throughout the region. OneEighty has peering agreements at the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX) and PAIX facilities with over 50 other ISPs (such as Microsoft MSN, Yahoo and numerous university networks) which facilitates an efficient, low-latency handoff of voice, data, or video. Locally they have a partnership with SafeDesk Solutions for remote storage of data – both consumer and business -- that could be a personal photo album or essential business data such as financial or medical records. Under the product name of SafeStor, OneEighty Networks will offer the off-site remote data storage at a price that both consumers and the SMB markets will support.
