Products/Services: Active Electronics – Wireline, Passives – Inside Plant, Customer-Premises Equipment, Other Managed Services

 ADTRAN introduces the world’s first bonded, super-vectoring (35b) solution that allows service providers to effectively deliver to MDUs near-gigabit broadband speeds while addressing Wi-Fi congestion issues that impact MDU subscriber experience. MDU market penetration is particularly challenging because of restrictive building entry processes, retrofit costs, building size variation and Wi-Fi interference issues. This turnkey solution accelerates broadband penetration goals by addressing these operational challenges.

This ultra-broadband solution includes a highly scalable, 192-port ADTRAN sealed remote node system to deliver 500-plus Mbps service. The ADTRAN 48-port bonded 35b remote node requires no cabinets or power construction to deliver ultra-low TCO and rapid time-to-market, and it eliminates building owners’ issues regarding tenant disruption. The comprehensive solution is paired with the SmartRG bonded 35b Wi-Fi 5 gateway, which includes cloud-based Wi-Fi auto-optimization and self-healing tools to address the growing number of smart home devices and amplify subscriber experience.

 Because of the high variability of MDU architectures, extensive engineering has typically been required to ensure proper cable lengths for fiber-to-the-premises deployments. The 4.5” (114.30 mm) FieldShield StrongFiber Deploy Reel minimizes pre-engineering because it allows StrongFiber to be pulled from the reel directly to an access point. The small form factor of the 900 µm fiber makes slack storage minimal and easy to accommodate, and the exceptional pull strength of StrongFiber makes it craft-friendly and easy for technicians to handle without fear of fiber damage. Lower cable weight means reduced coefficient of friction. This results in quicker installations because there is minimal friction as the cable is pulled through bends and turns throughout a microduct routepath. Reducing the size requirements of the access point (above or below grade) provides a more aesthetically pleasing solution.

 We aim to assist or be a leading partner to set up an affordable yet highly reliable and robust broadband network in a community. We have strategic partnerships with companies that include Ocean Cable and Communication Japan and Corning. Our fiber optic cable is welded steel tube armored with Corning glass that can be laid without any specialized equipment. We can lay the cable in many ways, including shallow direct burying, aerial wiring, submerging and conduiting, without splicing up to 10 miles. The cable has been designed for DIY laying without heavy machinery or high-tech fiber splicing. It can be laid with a little guidance from a technical person, and the community can be involved in cable laying, troubleshooting and repairing. Such an initiative not only reduces the cost and duration of installation but also results in lower opex in the long run.

 The COYOTE HD Dome Closure is engineered to support high-density splice applications up to 1,728 or 3,456 while offering the same space-saving footprint as our existing 9.5” x 28” COYOTE Dome Closure. The seven-port patented, segmented end plate provides independent access to each cable port without disruption to surrounding cables. In addition, grommet ranges now allow fiber optic cable entry up to 1.38” in diameter, providing support for a broad range of cable counts. The COYOTE HD Dome Closure is ideal for 432 through 3,456 applications and is rated to withstand 20 feet of waterhead, an IP68 rating. Two new flip tray designs were developed to support mass fusion splicing, single fusion, or a combination of both. The modular tray design permits trays to hinge upward or be removed from the stack to allow multiple splicers to work simultaneously, ultimately leading to greater deployment velocities.

 The TIN40-1000 is a one-way fiber optic node for CATV, SMATV, FTTx, MDU or private business applications. The TIN40-1000 has a wide optical input range from 1200 to 1600 nm, making it ideal for either 1310 nm or 1550 nm systems. The fiber optic receiver has an AGC circuit to maintain a RF output over a -6 to +2 dB optical input level. The high RF output level of 40 dBmV eliminates the need for a separate RF amplifier for distribution. A 0-18 dB gain control makes system balancing easy without external pads. The GaAs E-pHEMT push-pull hybrid provides superior performance with low distortions. The node uses an external 12VDC power supply (included) which can be connected directly or diplexed on the RF output cable for remote powering. The optical input is an SC/APC connector and features a multicolor LED for input level reference.
