ADTRAN Continues Driving Gigabit Broadband Evolution

ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today unveiled the latest component of its market leading Gigabit broadband portfolio, designed to accelerate service provider adoption of Gigabit Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH). ADTRAN is making it easier for service providers to drive down costs of FTTH installations with a new series of micro Optical Network Terminals (µONTs) that eliminates truck rolls, simplifies installations and eases upgrades while improving end user satisfaction. The new solutions are the latest example of how ADTRAN is addressing the challenges service providers face as they look to embrace next-generation broadband with Gigabit services.

A new era of broadband is forcing service providers worldwide to make decade-long network decisions without clear visibility into the future requirements of their customers, making network flexibility paramount. ADTRAN delivers a Gigabit services architecture that offers service providers of all types – including utilities, municipalities and cable MSOs – unprecedented flexibility, scalability and performance as they look to migrate from FTTN or DOCSIS or deploy greenfield FTTH infrastructures. ADTRAN is helping service providers address four critical issues that will allow them to successfully deliver scalable, symmetric Gigabit services:

      1.  

Low-cost, no-touch Gigabit fiber end-points reduce FTTH electronics capex by up to 60%

FTTH access termination devices, or ONTs, represent the bulk of the overall electronics cost for FTTH network operators. ADTRAN’s new µONTs reduce overall capital outlay while supporting Gigabit services performance. The µONTs also support the same operational simplification of zero-touch services provisioning enjoyed by ADTRAN’s entire FTTH solution.

2.

Gigabit optimized PON architecture allows more Gigabit services per port to be deployed

Many operators use GPON for Gigabit services delivery. However, sharing multiple Gigabit services over a single 2.5Gbps PON port presents a challenge. ADTRAN’s Advanced Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation enables intelligent oversubscription of the PON resource. This allows operators to guarantee a premium user experience to high-end gigabit subscribers.

3.

Non-blocking services platform needed to support premium real-time video applications

High-end quality of experience demands that no capacity bottlenecks occur within the FTTH platform. This type of non-blocking architecture is inherent to the advanced native Ethernet design of the ADTRAN Total Access 5000 family of products.
4.

Highly scalable services aggregation/transport required to support converged services

The growth of Gigabit services is leaving service providers looking for a way to cost-effectively address 10Gig aggregation and find a better solution to exhausted 10Gig rings in need of dedicated fiber to support cell towers and business locations. ADTRAN is enabling service providers to more efficiently address the bandwidth challenges created by Gigabit services with the Optical Networking Edge platform that delivers unmatched network access and edge scalability.
 

“Sycamore Telephone was looking to expand FTTH service into a larger community adjacent to our existing service area, effectively increasing the addressable market by 5X. We have a long working history with ADTRAN and we knew that the Total Access 5004 in the Crossover Enclosure would be the right solution for this deployment,” said Rick Ekleberry, broadband operations manager at Sycamore Telephone. “We have seen first-hand the benefits our FTTH service has brought to the community and know it is a critical requirement for the economic development of the area. ADTRAN is enabling us to future-proof our network investment as we look to scale our services now and into the future.”

“The long term demand for broadband is infinite with consumers wanting instant access anywhere, on any service and any device. This era of next-generation broadband is requiring service providers to effectively evolve, change and grow at a pace faster than ever before,” said Robert Conger, director, global carrier strategy and solutions, ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “In a time where service providers are making decisions without a roadmap of what their future service requirements will be, ADTRAN offers our customers unmatched flexibility and scalability so they can accelerate Gigabit service delivery and achieve their deployment goals.”

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...
