Zzoomm & ADTRAN Light Up a Bright, Full-Fiber Future for the UK
Broadband World News, , 1/21/2020
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, a leading provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience solutions, announced today that Zzoomm, an innovative alternative full fiber network provider in the UK, is now delivering multi-gigabit services in one of the UK's brightest communities. Zzoomm is leveraging ADTRAN's 10G Symmetric XGS PON portfolio to initially offer up to 2Gbps symmetric residential services.
Zzoomm's deployment lights the way to future-proof the UK for smart homes, and businesses, laying the foundations for a media-rich collaborative world of possibilities. These possibilities include remote education, collaboration and entertainment, all utilizing bandwidth-intensive and latency-sensitive applications that demand connectivity like Zzoomm's so all UK citizens can fully participate in the global Gigabit Economy.
"Today, less than 11% of the UK has Full Fibre coverage, and we're addressing that head-on by building the broadband network of the future with ADTRAN," said Matthew Hare, Chief Executive of Zzoomm. "Henley-on-Thames is a tech-savvy town with a great digital community, many remote workers and a mix of population demographics. Like the rest of the UK, residents of Henley love bandwidth-intensive applications and online gaming. Our Full Fibre network provides the infrastructure needed to ensure that every person gets the optimized broadband experience they crave, both today and in the future."
Zzoomm is leveraging a full suite of ADTRAN's market-leading fiber broadband and home networking solutions tailored to maximize the customer broadband experience. One of the challenges for residential subscribers in the UK is that many of the residential homes are older and are built using materials that can block Wi-Fi signals.
To overcome this challenge, Zzoomm intends to offer multiple services to the home where ADTRAN SmartRG residential gateways are leveraged to extend the WiFi coverage across a home or use a second broadband service of 100Mbps to separate home and work networks. Together these devices ensure that each customer can fully utilize the capacity purchased to support remote workers or even teenagers looking game or stream 4k videos. These devices are part of a fully integrated cloud service delivery platform that optimizes the subscriber experience and reduces the complexity of the home network.
At the core of its full-fiber network is ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 (TA5000). With it, Zzoomm can easily and seamlessly scale services within Henley-on-Thames, and beyond, by upgrading the switch fabric to 100G, this platform ensures their customers have the network they need today and across future decades.
"Zzoomm is taking the UK a giant step forward with its full-fiber service roll out, making 10G a reality for residential customers," said Stuart Broome, Vice President of International Sales, ADTRAN. "ADTRAN prides itself on being able to help any carrier, architect, plan, build, provision and manage their best network, and we're pleased to have been able to play such a key role in Zzoomm's network design and deployment."

As we have for the past two years, Light Reading will present our Cable Next-Gen Europe conference as a free digital symposium on June 21.
Charter has sparked RDOF work in all 24 states where it won bids. The cable op booked about $19 million in RDOF revenues in Q1, and expects to have about $9 million per month come in over the next ten years.
As we have for the past two years, Light Reading will stage the Cable Next-Gen Technologies & Strategies conference as a free digital event over two half-days in mid-March.
Launch of 2-Gig and 5-Gig FTTP tiers in 70-plus markets puts more pressure on cable ops to enhance their existing DOCSIS 3.1 network or accelerate their upgrade activity centered on the new DOCSIS 4.0 specs.
