Hancock Telephone Selects ADTRAN for Fiber Upgrade

  • FTTH
HUNTSVILLE, AL - Hancock Telephone, an independent telephone company in New York and Pennsylvania, has chosen ADTRAN for next-generation fiber-to-the-home and Carrier Ethernet over fiber solutions. To support the growth in demand for its LTE backhaul business with Tier 1 mobile operators and its own broadband service offering, Hancock selected ADTRAN’s NetVanta 8044M Ethernet Access Gateway and Total Access 5000 FTTH solutions.

Like many local carriers, Hancock is looking for ways to increase the variety and quality of services for its customer base while maintaining its legacy network architectures. With the Total Access 5000 and NetVanta 8044M platforms, ADTRAN offers scalable optical Ethernet solutions that support service migration. Scalability was a critical decision factor for Hancock as it migrates existing residential services to FTTH and upgrades mobile backhaul services to Carrier Ethernet over fiber.

“We were looking for an Ethernet and fiber-based solution that not only met our needs for a scalable, lower-cost operational model, but also provided us with the stringent quality-of-service and SLA management that is required by our Tier 1 mobile operator customers,” said Robert Wrighter, Jr., vice president at Hancock Telephone. “ADTRAN’s solutions allow us to successfully deploy Ethernet backhaul services in conjunction with premium FTTH services delivery. This helps us remain competitive in our market, and also allows us to offer better and more advanced services than we previously could.”
