HUNTSVILLE, Ala. ADTRAN, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation multi-gigabit fiber and fiber extension broadband access solutions, today announced that Three River selected ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 (TA5000) fiber access and packet optical transport platform to deploy high-capacity broadband services to rural communities in Nebraska. The service provider is leveraging ADTRAN's Combo PON technology, which delivers 10G symmetrical XGS-PON and 2.5G GPON services simultaneously from the same port onto the same single fiber strand. Three River will also utilize ADTRAN's Mosaic Subscriber Suite for advanced network insight and management capabilities. These combined solutions enable Three River to build a high-speed network with greater ROI by providing unparalleled subscriber experience, improved economics, streamlined operations and broader customer use cases.
Three River is a family of telecommunications companies operating since 1898. It planned to upgrade its entire network to fiber over a span of multiple years. However, COVID-19 accelerated its communities' need for reliable, high-capacity broadband. The service provider selected ADTRAN's TA5000 platform with its integrated transport capabilities to both modernize the fiber ring that connects its ILEC and CLEC networks and provide fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) delivery in communities that will benefit from Combo PON technology. Three River coupled its selection with ADTRAN's Mosaic Subscriber Suite, starting with Mosaic Customer Experience, Powered by Plume. The solution suite offers service providers unmatched, all-in-one subscriber insight and management through ultra-efficient, cloud-based device installation, activation, automated service optimization and restoration.
By pairing the TA5000 platform with the Mosaic Subscriber Suite, Three River is optimizing its path to a competitive broadband offering. The proactive network management capabilities will reduce maintenance operations for Three River, like expensive truck rolls that can reach 100 miles roundtrip in rural Nebraska. The operational savings can then be passed to Three River's customers, enabling aggressively priced service packages and increased value.
The ADTRAN Total Access 5000 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. To learn more about the platform's full features, please visit www.adtran.com/TA5000.
