ADTRAN introduces Total Access 1600 series for FTTH market

ADTRAN, a provider of next-generation networking
solutions, has expanded its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) portfolio with the launch
of Total Access 1600 series.


The new series is a family of 1RU form-factor optical
line terminals (OLTs) supporting either Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON)
or Ethernet FTTH (Active Ethernet).


The OLTs provide a compact addition to ADTRAN’s FTTH
product line, offering an efficient solution for deployments with lower
subscriber densities where lower port-counts are required. 


The Total Access 1600 is the right solution to
address the needs of service providers of all sizes that are looking to offer
fiber based broadband access services but have small and/or space constrained
serving locations,” said Darrell Brown, ADTRAN Broadband Access product line


The Total Access 1600 family enables deployments to fit
any network need by providing multiple cost optimized access-side interface options:
4, 8, and 16-port GPON and 48-port Gigabit Ethernet.


Additionally, the full backward compatibility with the
entire Total Access line of Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) ensures a smooth
transition for service providers interested in expanding FTTH service coverage
further into their existing network or incrementally offering the service into
new areas.


The market for bandwidth intensive applications has
pushed deeper into the Tier 2 and 3 markets with more and more IOCs and smaller
telecom operators looking at equipment that helps them compete effectively in
this demanding market. The ADTRAN Total Access 1600 should be a welcome
addition to these operators given its value proposition, compact size and
service density,” said David Emberley, Research Manager for IDCs
Telecommunications Equipment practice.


ADTRAN announced that carriers can leverage its Optical Networking Edge (ONE)
portfolio and Advanced Operational Environment (AOE) to eliminate the need for
capital-intensive overlay builds to support 4G backhaul services.
