HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, today announced its 10G Fiber Access Portfolio was honored by the Lightwave Innovation Reviews as a high-score recipient. 10G PON offers the scale and mass market economics that service providers need to support the demands of residential and business customers, as applications for cloud, IoT and 5G become a bigger part of the way we work, live and play. ADTRAN’s 10G portfolio offers an open and flexible approach for service providers of any size to deploy future-proof fiber networks supporting their communities of today and the future.
“Network operators are looking for ways to increase their ROI while achieving greater customer reach, higher customer take rate and supporting higher-value services. While in many areas of the world, FTTH penetration is low, often due to the challenging business case that deploying fiber presents,” said Robert Conger, CTO and Head of the Broadband Access Portfolio at ADTRAN. “ADTRAN is helping its customers build the next generation of fiber networks with flexible and easy-to-scale solutions, so that service providers of all sizes can support the way people and businesses connect.”
While traditional 10G solutions subscribe to a “one size fits all” approach, forcing any customer to buy solutions designed for large carriers, ADTRAN offers a more flexible alternative. Its proven 10G Fiber Access Portfolio uniquely provides three architectural variations (integrated, disaggregated, remote) aligned to respectively support service providers of any size.
“The Lightwave Innovation Reviews program recognizes technology developers who are demonstrating excellence in serving the optical networking community,” said Stephen Hardy, Editorial Director at Lightwave. “The high score ADTRAN’s 10G Fiber Access Portfolio received reflects the strong impression it made on members of our judging panel, one of whom called it a ‘WOW’ product.”
