Horizon is leveraging the Adtran broadband solution to expand its service footprint, monitor its growing network and bring symmetrical broadband to rural communities. Horizon is a multi-state service provider in Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Illinois.

Horizon selected the Adtran 10G fiber access platform along with the Adtran intelligent SaaS software to deliver the highest quality fiber broadband services while optimizing network operations and increasing service velocity. The ability to monitor network uptime and congestion enables Horizon to respond to potential issues before they become a subscriber issue.

“We’re leveraging the best architecture so that we can build a resilient network to deliver the best user experience. Because of partners like Adtran, we have the expertise and capability to support high-quality residential broadband services and large-scale Ethernet services for businesses and carriers,” Brian Riley, Senior Vice President of FTTP at Horizon, said.

With the new fiber network, Horizon can deploy multi-gigabit services that are 900x faster than before and will be the first symmetrical services ever offered in these communities. Horizon also chose the Adtran 10G fiber access platform because it simplifies migration to future technologies, said Craig Stein, Vice President, Americas, and Head of Global Business Development at Adtran.
