SDX 6330 Disaggregated OLT: The SDX 6330 10 Gbps Combo PON fiber access platform enables service providers to rapidly and cost-effectively connect homes and businesses with fiber-based broadband. The new open and disaggregated solution offers the industry’s highest port density and is the first optical line terminal (OLT) with integrated 400 Gbps uplinks. It will empower operators to accelerate fiber rollout and easily scale their networks to support dense urban, suburban, and rural deployments. With enhanced energy efficiency, the highly compact, temperature-hardened fiber access platform will be important for meeting sustainability targets and addressing market demands for both retail and wholesale providers.

The SDX 6330 is Adtran’s third generation of open and disaggregated OLT devices. With 48 ports of Combo PON in a compact and power-efficient design, it sets a new benchmark for lowering the total cost of deployment for 10 Gbps services. Designed to deliver network simplicity and sustainability at scale, the solution offers deployment versatility and improved reach. Featuring open interfaces, it provides the freedom to build best-in-class infrastructure with technology from multiple vendors. Its versatile architecture supports a wide range of network topologies and coherent optics. The SDX 6330 also helps meet corporate sustainability objectives by reducing power demand and landfill requirements.

Our SDX 6330 offers the network simplicity, sustainability, and scalability needed to power the gigabit society. That’s what makes it a compelling alternative to chassis-based architectures. It’s the solution many operators are searching for as they look to expand their market share while improving customer experience.
