Consolidated Telephone selects ADTRAN to expand access infrastructure

provider of networking solutions, announced that Consolidated Telephone, a
provider of integrated communications services to business and residents in
central Nebraska, will expand their existing Total Access 5000 access
infrastructure with Optical Networking Edge (ONE) to provide an edge-optimized
Packet Optical Transport Solution (P-OTS).

using the Total Access 5000 to migrate its legacy network to voice and data
services, Consolidated will evolve to a service-aware transport solution.

service awareness is delivered by the management integration of both the
service delivery and transport infrastructures. By implementing ONE,
Consolidated will be able to simplify operations and improve customer
quality-of-service as they offer and maintain high-bandwidth and high-value
services such as mobile backhaul and video.

“Over the
past year, we have seen tremendous growth in our network and the Total Access
5000 has facilitated a smooth transition from our legacy to next-generation
services with the flexibility and scalability we needed each step of the way,”
said Jason Axthelm, CTO, Consolidated Telephone.

portfolio allows service providers like Consolidated to benefit from converged
network scalability for service delivery, aggregation and transport
applications. The operator easily removes network bottlenecks associated with
network aggregation by simply inserting ONE blades into the Total Access 5000
platform. This allows efficient network capacity expansion in 10G increments up
to 440G.

Telephone has been a great partner to ADTRAN and we are pleased to extend that
relationship with the addition of the ONE portfolio into their network
infrastructure,” said Mitch Fleming, regional vice president, sales, ADTRAN
Carrier Networks Division.

provides the pay-as-you-grow modularity Consolidated needs to allow them to
accelerate the time-to-market for new high-bandwidth revenue opportunities and
at the same time eliminate multi-box cost and complexity, while simplifying
operations,” Fleming added.
