CTS Telecom Selects ADTRAN for Stimulus-Funded Fiber Rollout

  • FTTH
HUNTSVILLE, AL - CTS Telecom, an ILEC and CLEC that serves southwestern Michigan, has selected ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 platform for a complete network upgrade. The upgrade will allow CTS to address demands for higher-speed data and support VoIP with its new softswitch. ADTRAN will also provide the core technology for a major fiber rollout in its ILEC territory funded in part by a broadband stimulus award. (The company already provides fiber services to businesses in its CLEC territory.)

Because it needed to offer a variety of services in the same geography, CTS found the Total Access 5000's ability to provide multiple services from the same platform to be a major benefit. This project will give CTS residential customers access to triple-play services, including premium HD channels and VoD. Business customers will be served via active Ethernet, which provides dedicated service and guarantees high bandwidth, low delay and high reliability.

“We needed to upgrade the legacy DLCs in our ILEC territories and replace line units in conjunction with the softswitch migration at our CLEC. The Total Access 5000 was the perfect solution for both applications,” says Chad Colliver, project manager, CTS Telecom. “This platform provides the flexibility and scalability we needed to increase the efficiency of our network, provide faster DSL services to our customers, all while positioning us for future growth with next-generation services.”
