HUNTSVILLE, AL - Network equipment provider ADTRAN added three new high-performance, multiservice, modular routers to support Carrier Ethernet services. The NetVanta 3450, 3458 and 4430 enable sustained throughput of up to 250 Mbps.

Broadband Properties recently had the opportunity to view the product line and its management interface. We were impressed with the continued ability of ADTRAN to maintain a clean interface while adding features. Another observer, Michael Howard, principal analyst at Infonetics Research, says, “These new platforms will allow service providers to have a single vendor lineup that reaches from the Central Office to the enterprise desktop. We believe that service providers will want to consider this new lineup in order to achieve a simplified network topology and management in their quest for greater operational efficiency.”

ADTRAN's growing Carrier Ethernet portfolio meets deployment needs up to 750 Mbps of Carrier Ethernet for worldwide deployment. The Carrier Ethernet product suite includes the NetVanta 3400 and 4400 Series of modular, multiservice access routers, and the NetVanta 800 Series of Ethernet access devices, along with Ethernet switches. Together with ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP), this solution set offers ubiquitous Ethernet services for a complete end-to-end solution.

The NetVanta 3450 and 3458 are the newest additions to the NetVanta router family. These dual-slot performance-enhanced platforms provide support for multiple T1s or E1s of bandwidth and 45 Mbps of Carrier Ethernet. The NetVanta 3458 offers the added benefit of an integral eight-port Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch. These platforms deliver high packet throughput, making them well suited for IP telephony, corporate connectivity and Internet access.

The NetVanta 4430 simplifies deployment for higher-bandwidth Carrier Ethernet services while addressing the need for efficient, cost-effective solutions, with support for up to 750 Mbps. Priced to deliver industry-leading total cost of ownership, the NetVanta 4430 allows customers to speed deployment, reduce capital and operating expenditures and increase network utilization.

NetVanta 3400 and 4400 Series platforms offer innovative features designed to address Carrier Ethernet services. These features include

  • SLA support through end-to-end quality of service

  • SLA and network health measurement via inherent network quality monitoring

  • Advanced VoIP monitoring and easy troubleshooting via voice quality monitoring

  • Simplified service deployments with quicker installations and more effective circuit diagnostics via connectivity fault management and operations and maintenance functionality

  • Enhanced security with firewall and VPN support

  • Ease of management and installation via time-saving features like auto-configuration and auto-install, which automate configurations speeding large deployments

  • The ability to be combined with products such as ADTRAN's Ethernet switches enabling Gigabit-to-the-desktop, Wi-Fi and VoIP deployments


These platforms are complemented by the NetVanta 800 Series of Ethernet access devices, which are used for Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM). These solutions work in conjunction with DSLAMs or Multi-Service Access and Aggregation Platforms, such as ADTRAN's Total Access 3000 and Total Access 5000, to deliver enhanced data rate capabilities via a variety of technologies including, e.SHDSL, DS3, or TDM.
