Zzoomm taps ADTRAN for fibre broadband network

ADTRAN, a supplier of networking and subscriber experience solutions, said Zzoomm, a fibre network provider in the UK, is deploying ADTRAN’s 10G Symmetric XGS PON to initially offer up to 2Gbps symmetric residential services in Henley-on-Thames.
ADTRAN and Zzoomm“Today, less than 11 percent of the UK has Full Fibre coverage, and we’re addressing that head-on by building the broadband network of the future with ADTRAN,” said Matthew Hare, chief executive of Zzoomm.

Zzoomm is leveraging ADTRAN’s fibre broadband and home networking solutions tailored to maximize the customer broadband experience. Zzoomm aims to offer multiple services to the home where ADTRAN SmartRG residential gateways are leveraged to extend the Wi-Fi coverage across a home or use a second broadband service of 100Mbps to separate home and work networks.

Zzoomm is using ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 (TA5000), which is at the core of its full-fibre network, to scale services within Henley-on-Thames, and beyond, by upgrading the switch fabric to 100G.

“Zzoomm is taking the UK a giant step forward with its full-fibre service roll out, making 10G a reality for residential customers,” said Stuart Broome, Vice President of International Sales, ADTRAN.
