Community Fibre has selected Adtran as its technology partner to deliver 10G residential and business services in the UK.
Optical access equipment specialist Adtran has expanded its software-defined access (SD-Access) portfolio with an environmentally sealed and compact 10G-EPON virtual remote optical line terminal (R-OLT) unit.
Aimed at cable operators looking to upgrade their networks with fibre to the home and distributed access architectures (DAA), these new elements make it possible for them to implement the latest technologies, while seamlessly integrating into their existing DOCSIS back office provisioning and operational systems.
Adtran has announced that US operator CenturyLink is using its virtualised optical line terminal (OLT) in a field trial of next-generation access services.
This is the first US deployment of a disaggregated software-defined access (SD-Access) system, the vendor claims. The virtualised OLT can be programmed to deliver different technologies – in this case XGS-PON and NG-PON2 – from the same hardware, creating a more flexible, manageable and scalable access network infrastructure.
Call Flow wants to make a name for itself as the first operator in the UK to offer symmetric multi-gigabit access speeds.
The alternative broadband operator has been building out 100Mb/s fibre-to-the cabinet-based services across Southern England via sub-loop unbundling. To allow services to scale further, it has now decided to adopt a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) strategy based on the XGS-PON architecture.
To this end, Call Flow has chosen XGS-PON equipment from US optical access systems provider Adtran.
HUNTSVILLE, AL – ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, today announced that the Board of Directors has appointed Gregory McCray, CEO of Alphabet’s Access Company, the Alphabet subsidiary that oversees Google Fiber, as a director. Mr. McCray’s extensive background in driving the connected future will be a tremendous asset to ADTRAN’s Board as the company continues to focus on expanding Gigabit broadband speeds to support the broader demands of smart cities, the Internet of Things and software-defined networking.
Access systems provider Adtran has launched an open software defined access architecture capable of supporting rapid service creation and delivery for both business and residential broadband services.
Dubbed ‘Mosaic’, the new architecture combines modern web-scale technology with open source platforms to facilitate rapid innovation in multi-technology, multi-vendor environments, according to the vendor.
Adtran has unveiled its plans to add NG-PON2 capabilities to its broadband product portfolio. The upcoming product release will use the latest 10G per wavelength symmetric ITU/FSAN standard-based technology on a single, common architecture that supports both residential and business applications.
Adtran, a leading provider of cloud connectivity, enterprise communications and mobility solutions, has unveiled its NetVanta® 4660 Integrated Layer 2/3 Carrier Ethernet Services Router.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
