CommScope sells fiber products biz to ADTRAN

Telecom equipment maker ADTRAN today announced its deal with CommScope to acquire key fiber products, technologies and service deals.

This acquisition will enhance ADTRAN’s solutions for the cable MSO industry and will provide cable operators with the scalable solutions, services and support they require to compete in the multi-gigabit service delivery market.

ADTRAN said the active EPON and 10G-EPON product platforms include infrastructure and customer premises equipment that deliver CableLabs DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE) certification. ADTRAN will sell, support, and develop these product lines for new and existing MSO customers.

ADTRAN will leverage HFC and FTTP bridging technology — Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) product line including patented optical beat interference (OBI) mitigated versions — to help customers deliver high-bandwidth services and applications in specific situations, including rural and low-density greenfield deployments.

CommScope will continue providing passive PON solutions to the MSO and service provider market, including its optical closures, optical terminals and drops, and other passive accessories, along with its robust portfolio of innovative fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) offerings.

CommScope claims that it has a strong commitment to helping MSO and telecom service providers evolve their networks.

“Our goal is to help customers build and offer competitive broadband solutions, and this acquisition demonstrates our commitment to the MSO customer base,” said Robert Conger, associate vice president, Cloud and Portfolio Strategy at ADTRAN.
