Ethernet over Copper Products

Reach more customers with greater symmetric bandwidth using Overture’s industry-leading bonded copper solutions to rapidly turn up services from 1Mbps to 100Mbps.

Overture’s Ethernet over copper solutions can increase the market opportunity for high-speed business services, mobile backhaul and cloud connectivity to your customers by ten-fold based on the current penetration of fiber optics—an attractive value proposition in any market environment.  In addition to traditional Carrier Ethernet applications, Ethernet over copper solutions improve resiliency and deliver significantly higher bandwidth for network infrastructure applications such as DSLAM backhaul and small cell access.

Overture’s Ethernet over copper solutions are Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Certified and consist of both edge and aggregation elements that work together to speed deployment and simplify operations.  With Overture solutions, service providers and network operators can bond up to 32 copper pairs and, depending on the distance, can get 15Mbps on each pair. Theoretically, you can achieve nearly 500 Mbps on copper with this solution. In practice, our customers typically deploy services and transport from 10Mbps - 100 Mbps using these solutions. Performance assurance is delivered with industry standard OAM protocols such as ITU Y.1731, IEEE 802.1ag and ITU Y.1564.
