ADTRAN and Telefónica Demo Open, Converged 10G Services

BARCELONA — ADTRAN, a provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience solutions, announced its participation in Telefónica’s 10G PON demonstration at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This will be Telefónica’s first demonstration leveraging an SDN-enabled broadband access (SEBA) architecture, including a virtualized control plane, to deliver converged residential, business and mobile backhaul services. ADTRAN will supply its SDX 10G PON OLTs to aggregate multi-vendor ONTs as part of the demonstration.

Subscribers demand premium services that are delivered rapidly and at a low cost, and service providers will meet these expectations with innovative and flexible networks that leverage the latest broadband technologies and standards for open, multi-vendor environments. Telefónica’s demo at Mobile World Congress is the next step in evolving the operator’s global FTTH coverage of more than 30 million homes.

Improved Bandwidth and Customer Support
The network upgrade will improve bandwidth and enhance support for business, residential triple-play and mobile network services. ADTRAN SD-Access 10G PON solutions will provide Telefónica with an open, disaggregated network by utilizing virtualized access software from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF). This capability enables multiple OLT and ONU vendors to seamlessly interoperate in any environment and allows Telefónica to more easily accelerate the deployment of programmable, software-based service architectures.

“As an ONF partner, ADTRAN provides access solutions for the open networking ecosystem so that service providers around the world can streamline the creation and deployment of revenue-generating services,” ADTRAN Americas CTO Robert Conger said. “Telefónica is leveraging ADTRAN’s SD-Access portfolio with flexible 10G PON to support existing FTTH subscribers while seamlessly providing a path to higher-bandwidth services.”
