Ontario Provider Selects ADTRAN for FTTH Deployment

  • FTTH
HUNTSVILLE, AL - Wightman Telecom, an independent telco serving southern Ontario, Canada, selected ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 platform for FTTH deployments throughout its service area.

Tom Sullivan, Wightman Telecom's vice president and general manager, says, “We needed a flexible platform that would provide an evolutionary path and maximize the ROI of our copper base while allowing us to transition to FTTH without a forklift upgrade. We needed a vendor that would provide a robust product with an aggressive roadmap and long-term support. ADTRAN and its Total Access 5000 were the perfect solution. Because of the flexibility of this next-generation platform, we will realize operational expense savings and increased revenue streams as we continue to roll out triple-play services to our customers. Today, we are exploiting our existing copper infrastructure, retiring an end-of-life switching platform and continuing our evolution to FTTH.

"We see FTTH as the end game, and ADTRAN with its Total Access 5000 provided us the best path to achieve this over the long term.”

The Total Access 5000 is designed to enable service providers to protect their current investments and future-proof their networks. With a multiterabit backplane, it offers unmatched capacity and scalability. Using the industry’s widest range of access and transport modules, it is extremely flexible, allowing service providers to easily launch multiple new services from a common platform.
