New 1RU form factor enables service providers to knock out high-impact FTTH services over Gigabit Ethernet and GPON
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 4, 2012– ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN, news, filings), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today added the Total Access® 1600 series to its industry-leading Fiber to the Home (FTTH) portfolio. The new Total Access 1600 is a family of 1RU form-factor optical line terminals (OLTs) supporting either Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) or Ethernet FTTH (Active Ethernet). These 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. While the new solutions occupy less space, they are not limited when it comes to functionality, offering 40Gbps per system network uplink capability, Ethernet ring support, multi-system link aggregation, and stacking options.
“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,” said David Emberley, Research Manager for IDCs Telecommunications Equipment practice. “The ADTRAN Total Access 1600 should be a welcome addition to these operators given its value proposition, compact size and service density.”
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. 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. In addition, ADTRAN’s award winning Service Management System, provides service level management for the entire Total Access portfolio of Broadband Access solutions, simplifying the management of broadband services while decreasing the associated operational costs.
“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 manager. “As part of ADTRAN’s complete Total Access family of products, the Total Access 1600 is optimized to meet deployment needs and keep costs to a minimum – a valuable asset in today’s market as customers look to maximize service offerings and minimize capital expense.”
