Long-reach, construction-less Gigabit-to-the-Basement Gfast solution
earns global recognition with prestigious Broadband World Forum accolade
BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 27, 2017--
ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation open
networking solutions, today announced its disruptive Gigabit-to-the-Basement
deployment model has been named Best Fixed Access Solution at the 2017
Broadband Awards. Presented at a special awards dinner on Wednesday,
October 25, as part of the annual Broadband World Forum event in Berlin,
Germany, the award recognises the vendor whose solution has spurred
development in fixed access and improved end user experience.
“GTTB is an innovative Gfast-based solution advancing the Gigabit
Society by enabling network operators to deliver gigabit speeds much
more widely by extending the range and reach of traditional FTTB/FTTdp
Gigabit capability by a factor of 10 while reducing the cost by seven
times,” said Gary Bolton, vice president of global marketing, ADTRAN.
“We are very pleased to receive this award and are committed to
continuing our efforts in making a significant difference to the future
of our customers’ networks.”
The ADTRAN GTTB solution, part of the ADTRAN SDX2200 series, is a 2nd
generation 212MHz Gfast DPU with both a bonded Super-Vectoring (VDSL2
35b) and fiber uplink option. The bonded Super-Vectoring uplink allows
gigabit services to be deployed up to five times faster by removing the
need for distribution fiber construction from the cabinet to the
building or distribution point, therefore expediting the rollout of
gigabit services significantly. The built-in fiber option allows service
providers to switch over to fiber-based uplink technologies supporting
10Gig/s capacities without exchanging the DPU in a later stage once
fiber reaches the building.
ADTRAN, Inc. is a leading global provider of networking and
communications equipment. ADTRAN’s products enable voice, data, video
and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures.
