ADTRAN’s advanced broadband services delivery solution awarded ‘Best Fixed Access Product’ for innovation and excellence in enabling high-bandwidth, next-generation networks worldwide
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May. 8, 2012– ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN, news, filings), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced its Ultra Broadband Ethernet (UBE) services delivery solution has been awarded “Best Fixed Access Product” by Terrapinn’s 2012 World Vendor Awards. ADTRAN’s UBE was recognized for its innovative, unique and commercially-compelling ability to address the needs of the booming fixed broadband market worldwide. The solution’s revolutionary architecture enables service providers to quickly and affordably deliver the most advanced, high-bandwidth broadband services across the entire network. ADTRAN was honored Thursday, April 26, 2012 at the 2012 World Vendor Awards Gala Dinner in London.
The 2012 World Vendor Awards recognize excellence amongst the vendor community, focusing on telecommunications hardware, software and solutions that are fundamental in driving the advancement of global communications. The global winners were ultimately judged for industry impact on addressable markets, innovation, commercial benefits, as well as ease-of-deployment and compatibility with existing equipment and solutions.
The ADTRAN UBE architecture was uniquely developed in close cooperation with Tier 1 carriers in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America to deliver a unique ultra-high performance FTTH option. By driving fiber to the Distribution Point (DP), UBE allows operators to deliver broadband Ethernet over existing subscriber drops, dramatically reducing the cost and time associated with deploying FTTH in high-cost locations like MDUs or areas with buried cable plant without sacrificing performance. Additionally, UBE’s ultra-low power consumption enables it to leverage distributed power from the homes it serves instead of complicated and expensive network sourced powering—a capability that is unique to ADTRAN and a first in the market.
“In order to remain successful and competitive in the marketplace, service providers around the world are seeking to accommodate new and exciting high-bandwidth services and applications. Traditional FTTH has been a successful solution for some, but limits availability in many serving areas due to cost and deployment time constraints,” said Jay Wilson, general manager for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “UBE offers service providers a flexible, scalable and cost-effective complement to deploy an advanced, next-generation hybrid FTTH network where revenue-generating services can be turned up in days, compared to weeks or months.”
