Stratospheric expansion for Adtran

Share this on social media:

Adtran has quintupled its VDSL port shipments in EMEA over the last 18 months following increased demand for its vectoring capabilities. The announcement follows news that Dr. Eduard Scheiterer has been promoted to senior vice president and managing director for international markets, to lead Adtran's global market expansion.

'Over the past two years, Adtran has achieved exceptional growth in its EMEA-based business,' said Tom Stanton, chairman and CEO. 'Service providers across EMEA and the rest of our international markets are continuing to see premium broadband services as an integral component of their future opportunities.'

Adtran says it is investing in its global solutions portfolio to provide the necessary innovations to move the marketplace into the next generation of broadband access and networking solutions. Scheiterer said: 'Our strategy is to continue engagement with new and existing customers around their next-generation access requirements with a view towards enhancing their vectoring capabilities as well as future gigabit broadband options.'

Adtran recently introduced frequency division vectoring (FDV) technology enables carriers across EMEA to significantly broaden its G.fast addressable market in the region. By enabling both G.fast and VDSL2 vectoring to better coexist by working in tandem across a single subscriber line in the service provider's network, service providers are able to preserve investments in its fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) infrastructure.

FDV doubles data rates and increases the reach of intermediate-rate services - between 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps - which allows for delivery of cost-effective premium broadband to 80 per cent more subscribers.
