Telecom Lead America: ADTRAN is keen to leverage the
growing BYOD market.
The company has launched its BYOD Network Suite to enable
businesses to handle the network demand created by the proliferation of Wi-Fi
Main benefits of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) concepts
include the elimination of upfront investment, lower support and upgrade costs,
access to the latest technology and higher user satisfaction.
BYOD also creates issues for the enterprise’s network as
it must scale to accommodate the rise in devices and higher-bandwidth
According to IDC, by 2015, 55 percent of all devices used
for business purposes will be owned by employees rather than the corporation.
The rise in BYOD in every market segment we cover has
been a tremendous growth engine for us as our customers look to scale their
wireless LAN infrastructure to accommodate the rise in smart phone, tablet and
other Wi-Fi-enabled devices on their networks,” said Troy Holwerda, president,
ADTRAN’s new solution combines the power of its Ethernet
routers and switches with the benefits of its cloud-based, virtualized approach
to scaling the wireless LAN infrastructure to handle the surge in traffic
today, in 2015 and beyond.
Part of the challenge enterprise IT managers face is how
to scale their wireless and wired IT infrastructure to handle the increase in
bandwidth and broad range of service support a BYOD environment requires when
they are forced to manage their network resources as two disparate networks,”
said Ted Cole, vice president of channel sales for ADTRAN.
What makes ADTRAN’s integrated BYOD Network Suite so
attractive is that it bridges the gap between wireless and wired access to
create one seamless network that is easily managed, maintained and expanded –
an advantage that cannot be delivered by any other vendor in the market today,”
