HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, the leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, today announced it has acquired SmartRG Inc -- a pacesetter and accomplished innovator of carrier-class, open-source connected home platforms and cloud services for broadband service providers.
Based in Vancouver, Wash., SmartRG brings long-standing industry leadership and expertise in open-source software development, plus a comprehensive portfolio of cloud-management, analytics, WiFi-enabled residential gateways and its SmartOS software platform. The company’s executive team and employees will remain in place to ensure a seamless transition and accelerated market share growth, while leveraging ADTRAN's global reach and resources into the popular, growing market for connected homes.
Together, ADTRAN Mosaic and Smart OS provide full end-to-end management and orchestration solutions from cloud edge to subscriber edge. Service providers understand bandwidth must now be delivered not only to the doorstep but down to every device within a home to meet consumer expectations. This acquisition emphasizes ADTRAN’s commitment to helping broadband providers lower operating expenses and connect everyone, everywhere and everything -- the Internet the way it should be.
SmartRG has more than 3 million devices in service and over 1.3 million devices under management in North America, the Caribbean and South America. The company expects to scale and drive growth through its differentiated software solutions as more customers shift from closed, proprietary options to SmartOS, its open-source-based, cloud-enabled solution suite.
