ADTRAN Receives Mobility Tech Zone Wireless Backhaul Distinction Award

ONE portfolio honored for innovation in network scalability and advanced multi-service delivery

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 26, 2012– ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN, news, filings), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Mobility Tech Zone, a global, integrated media site dedicated to mobility and communications sponsored by TMC and Crossfire Media, has presented ADTRAN’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) portfolio with a 2011 Wireless Backhaul Distinction Award for innovation and commitment in the evolution of the wireless industry. ADTRAN’s ONE supplies service providers with the flexibility and capacity needed to evolve to an advanced packet optical network as they scale to support increasing amounts of backhaul traffic; accommodate bandwidth-intensive, revenue-generating services; and grow to address mobile as well as business and residential backhaul applications.

The ONE portfolio offers unmatched scalability and flexibility by unifying multi-service access, aggregation and packet optical transport technologies needed to support the traffic explosion driven by video, mobile backhaul and cloud services. The solution supports residential broadband, business solutions and cell-site backhaul services, allowing customers to get increased value out of network assets and eliminate the need for capital-intensive overlay builds to support advanced 4G backhaul services.

By combining ONE’s right-sized wavelength service capabilities with an intuitive web-based service level agreements (SLAs) monitoring tool powered by the ADTRAN Advanced Operational Environment (AOE), customers can guarantee and manage each traffic type at the right quality-of-service level. The integrated solution enables service providers to deliver advanced services to residential customers, business customers and cell cites over a common network infrastructure. The SLA is assured through an innovative service separation approach with the proactive collection, analysis and presentation of the network data.

“ADTRAN solutions are enabling the promise of mobile broadband. ONE allows service providers to meet customer demand for high-bandwidth applications, avoid network bottleneck, and improve quality-of-experience as they deploy and maintain next-generation services,” said Robert Conger, Product Line Manager for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks. “Not only does ONE offer superior scalability and simplified operations, but the solution’s pay-as-you-grow modularity enables superior CapEx and OpEx savings for a faster time-to-revenue.”

“ADTRAN has demonstrated achievements in advancing wireless and providing genuine solutions in the marketplace. ADTRAN’s ONE portfolio is impressive and its customers have experienced success from employing its wireless backhaul technologies,” said Carl Ford, co-founder and community developer, Crossfire Media.

“It is a pleasure to present ADTRAN with a Wireless Backhaul Distinction Award. ONE has impressed our panel of judges by demonstrating superior capabilities. I look forward to seeing more innovation from ADTRAN in the future,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.
