ADTRAN says over 60 telecoms use broadband solutions

ADTRAN says more than 60 telecom service providers across six continents have utilized broadband solutions.

BT, the telecom operator in the UK, is one of the telecoms to conduct trials. The BT trials in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, reaching over two thousand premises are the latest to include the ADTRAN 500G Series solutions. broadband technology is allowing carriers to deliver up to five times the broadband speed currently offered by the most progressive UK cable providers.

The company claims that ADTRAN solutions are changing the way broadband is transmitted, moving from more costly FTTP deployment models to emerging Fiber-to-the-distribution point (FTTdp) models and now Fiber-to-the-Cabinet (FTTCab).

This, coupled with ADTRAN’s intention to increase the port density of equipment in the future, offers potential savings for large service providers for every 50 meters of additional customer reach.

“Providing fiber to every home or business in a given community can be a logistical and financial challenge. Rather than relying on fiber for the entire network, solutions such as ADTRAN’s utilize existing copper assets for the last step of the journey,” said Mike Galvin, managing director of service, strategy & operations at BT.

“This allows us to provide the ultra-fast broadband that customers demand, while reducing the time and cost of running fiber all the way to the premises,” said Galvin.

Eduard Scheiterer, senior vice president, research and development, ADTRAN, said the company’s continued investment in includes end-user service activation through reverse powering capabilities.

“We are also working with standards bodies like the Broadband Forum to develop open APIs and interfaces allowing simplified, rapid deployment into any broadband network, regardless of FTTx vendor or OSS incumbency,” said Scheiterer.

ADTRAN’s solutions support open Software-Defined Network (SDN) deployment models that ensure rapid plug and play deployment capability within the multi-vendor FTTx networks that exist today.

The broadband technology company claims over 100,000 sealed micro DSLAMs in FTTdp and FTTCab deployments to date.
