HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - ADTRAN, Inc., a leading provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience solutions, announced today that Openreach has selected ADTRAN's SDX Series of OLTs and Mosaic Cloud Platform to help it achieve its ambition of making gigabit and multi-gigabit services available to 20 million homes by the mid-to-late 2020s with its Full Fibre network. More than 600 retail carriers across the United Kingdom rely on Openreach to deliver the wholesale capacity to support a broad portfolio of services to enterprise, small-to-medium businesses and residential customers.
By delivering the industry's highest OLT port density per rack, ADTRAN's SDX platform will enable Openreach to economically scale its GPON and XGS-PON network with a level of flexibility that could not be realized with traditional access solutions. The platform's disaggregated, flexible design provides the framework to support Openreach's vast number of customers by delivering the granularity of interconnect speeds required to meet the needs of retail service providers of all sizes. Capable of supporting gigabit and multi-gigabit access links on the same OLT port, Openreach's retail customers can deliver the right mix of enterprise, business and residential services based on their own demographics, industry type and residential interests.
