HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- During its 2019 CONNECT Press & Analyst Event, ADTRAN today announced several additions to its 10G PON portfolio.
Once deployed, operators can shift focus from capacity creation to delivering an enhanced customer experience capable of supporting extreme bandwidth applications for any type of customer. From game streaming services like Google Stadia, to 8k video, 12k courtside VR, and the rising tide of Internet of Things (IoT) devices—ADTRAN's comprehensive 10G solutions ensure a premium broadband service experience for everyone.
Leveraging ADTRAN's Mosaic™ software suite to provide end-to-end integration and visibility, operators will be able utilize the expanded portfolio to roll out services faster, monitor and optimize service quality, and make better decisions about network operations as they look to meet growing customer demand for Gigabit services.
"10G PON delivers the service quality and reach we need to maximize the revenue opportunities across all of our of markets, including the residential, business and industrial segments, delivering a robust multi-gigabit service structure that exceeds our customers' expectations," said Sven Huster, Engineering Director at Zzoomm, a full fiber network operator in the UK. "We're focused on delivering a differentiated broadband experience for our customers and believe that 10G PON gives us the foundation we'll need to grow and thrive in the Gigabit Economy."
The ADTRAN 600-Series of 10G PON ONTs, which serve all business and residential broadband applications, now includes the:
The SDX 620s & 640s XGS-PON and 10G EPON SFP+ ONUs
Simplifies service delivery and enables flexible WAN technology options for SFP-based residential gateways
Provides a variety of 1G and 10G Ethernet port options with integrated carrier class VoIP and built-in optics for residential applications
"The fiber broadband access network needs to support the onslaught of extreme-bandwidth applications to preserve a network operator's ability to monetize smart home and business opportunities," ADTRAN Director of Portfolio Management for Subscriber Solutions & Experience Jeremy Harris said.
"Making one piece of the network go faster, without addressing the other elements in the service delivery chain, can actually compound customers' problems," he said. "Taking an end-to-end portfolio approach is the best way to ensure a best-in-industry customer experience."
It would cost about $70 billion over 10 years to bring all-fiber fixed-access broadband to rural and small-town America, writes Fiber Broadband Association President and CEO Lisa Youngers in this month's exclusive BBWN column. The ROI? Priceless.
In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
The cable industry took a major step in the battle for Gigabit broadband supremacy with the announcement of its 10G Platform vision. The key to realizing this vision hinges on leveraging the right access technologies and network architectures to provide the best balance of benefit versus cost.
One network path has the MSO embracing Next-Generation Hybrid Fiber Coax (NG HFC), which includes:
Distributed Access Architecture (DAA)
Full Duplex DOCSIS (FDX)
Virtual Cable Converged Access Platforms (vCCAP)
Fiber-to-the-Home/Business (FTTH/B) is another network option, affording gigabit broadband scalability and 10Gbps service capability. How is an MSO to decide where which option works best and what to do now to prepare its networks for the onslaught of high-bandwidth residential and business applications?
During this webinar, Jack Burton, principal of Broadband Success Partners, outlines current and new access network architectures. Additionally, he will examine the facts and debunk some common misconceptions surrounding both fiber and NG HFC network deployment and maintenance.
