ADTRAN Lights Up 10 Gbps Broadband Customer Trials

HUNTSVILLE, AL — ADTRAN, a provider of next-generation open networking solutions, announced that several 10 Gbps broadband customer trials are underway. A wide range of service providers from new market entrants to municipal/utility providers to international Tier 1 carriers are all currently evaluating Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) services based on XGS-PON architecture. Led by ADTRAN, XGS-PON is an emerging ITU 10G PON standard that bridges the gap between today’s FTTH technologies and NG-PON2. The new technology is enabling network operators to achieve greater profitability with converged residential and expanded business services for the first time.

With a near infinite demand in bandwidth from both business and residential customers, service providers must implement solutions that enable them to scale their current PON networks to meet expanding customer needs. XGS-PON, a new technology ADTRAN has developed that supports 10 Gbps symmetric fixed wavelength PON over new or existing fiber infrastructure, meets service providers’ needs by doubling the useable life span of a fiber network regardless of how fast the markets broadband traffic usage grows. Service providers can now support the capacity, reliability and flexibility needed for premium business and mobile backhaul services, while also delivering the price points and scale required for mass market residential applications. These revenue generating applications and services are resulting in substantial economic growth within gigabit communities around the world.

Improving the Return on Existing Fiber Network Investments
“Participating in ADTRAN’s XGS-PON trial was an opportunity we eagerly jumped at. XGS-PON is allowing us to exceed our customers’ bandwidth needs today while still proactively planning for future network build outs and capabilities,” said Ben Lovins, senior vice president, telecommunications division at Jackson Energy Authority. “The ability to deploy on our current fiber network while still using the same passive and active plants is allowing us to greatly improve the return on our existing fiber network investment. We have already begun to see the customer economic and business benefits of next-generation broadband services within our hospitals and school systems and look forward to enabling continued growth and development in our community.”

“ADTRAN is committed to accelerating the path to 10 Gigabit broadband with world-class solutions so service providers can have the maximum flexibility they need to deliver the services their customers are demanding today and in the future,” said Ryan McCowan, fiber access product manager for ADTRAN. “These trials are demonstrating new opportunities to converge residential gigabit broadband and premium optical business services over a common 10 Gbps access architecture. XGS-PON allows service providers to double the life of their current optical network investment while gaining a head start towards future network capabilities.”
