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."
STC, Comcast and NTT Communications are among the operators interested in using Cisco's Silicon One, part of the vendor's newly unveiled unified single silicon architecture for routers that is designed to slash testing costs and time.
Many Tier 1 MSOs have yet to choose between EPON and GPON, and their natural ties to IEEE standard-based technologies plus EPON's accelerated future timeline, could make this an attractive standard for large cable ops, ADTRAN engineering exec Jess Beihoffer tells BBWN.
The federal watchdog agency recommends the FCC consider eliminating the old cost-accounting program since it's more prone to fraud than the alternative reimbursement method among small, rural providers that receive about $2.5 billion annually to deploy broadband.
The ongoing debate around GPON vs EPON can get as heated as discussions around politics and religion, but both technologies offer some advantages over the other depending on the needs your network is servicing.
In this webinar, we will focus on the facts around the GPON vs EPON debate and how that technological decision is almost always made based on factors outside the technology itself.
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.
