Hatteras Merges with Overture

"Carrier Ethernet market leaders Overture Networks and Hatteras Networks announced today they have signed a definitive agreement to merge the two companies. Individually recognized by industry analysts as the number one vendors’ in their respective markets, the merger creates a formidable global solutions provider for telecommunications carriers and service providers. Operating as Overture Networks, the combined company establishes a clear market leader in one of the most dynamic segments of the communications industry: Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation platforms," according to the press release [pdf].

I was wondering how long Hatteras would be stand-alone, especially with so many companies rolling out EoC. MegaPath announced that it will upgrade over 300 CO's with new gear that will deliver up to 90 Mbps via EoC.
