HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – ADTRAN, Inc., a leading provider of next-generation innovative fiber and fiber extension broadband access solutions, today announced that its SDX Series of open, disaggregated fiber access solutions was awarded by the Broadband World Forum as the winner of the 2020 Multi-Gigabit Service Delivery Award. This industry-leading portfolio offers a broad range of solutions to support various operator use cases and lower the total cost of ownership for next-generation fiber access networks.
ADTRAN's SDX solutions are architected to shift from previous network approaches that have relied on closed, monolithic systems managed by vendor-specific management solutions. ADTRAN's SDX portfolio enables operators to deploy open, disaggregated fiber access platforms that support forward-looking SD-Access reference architectures without compromising on carrier-grade features or form factors. By combining data center scalability and programmability with fiber access connectivity, the SDX portfolio provides a future-proof approach to residential, enterprise and backhaul connectivity.
The Broadband World Forum Award highlights ADTRAN's leadership in fiber access, 10G PON and Combo PON. The ADTRAN SDX Series portfolio includes Combo PON OLTs, 10G micro ONTs and multi-terabit aggregation switches. Additionally, these industry-leading capabilities, such as 10G PON and Combo PON, are also available on ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 (TA5000) Fiber Access Platform. The TA5000 platform is the highest density 10G PON solution in the U.S. market and serves as the foundation for the industry's most comprehensive RDOF portfolio.
A budget of $61 billion to $118 billion would enable the US to bring 1-Gig to all locations that get less than 100/20 Mbit/s service that aren't tied to RDOF phase I, ACA Connects/Cartesian study finds.
Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.
Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.
