Hancock Telephone Selects ADTRAN For Broadband, Carrier Ethernet And Mobile Backhaul Services Upgrade

Stocks in this article: ADTN

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Hancock Telephone, an independently owned telephone company servicing New York and Pennsylvania, has chosen ADTRAN for next-generation Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) and Carrier Ethernet over fiber (EoF) solutions. Deploying these fiber-based solutions at this time enables Hancock customers to gain access to high-speed broadband content anywhere in the network – whether at home, at work or using a mobile device. To support the growth in demand for both 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 today, Hancock is looking for ways to increase the variety and quality of services for its customer base while, at the same time, maintain incumbent services revenue running on their legacy network architectures like TDM and Copper. ADTRAN understands this need and has developed innovative solutions that maximize the services lifecycle of incumbent access while benefiting from low-cost, next-generation Ethernet architectures. With the Total Access 5000 and NetVanta 8044M platforms, ADTRAN offers scalable optical Ethernet solutions that support service migration as providers continue to examine the customer demand for greater bandwidth and new services. Scalability was a critical decision factor for Hancock as they migrate existing residential services to FTTH and upgrade mobile backhaul services to Carrier Ethernet over Fiber, leveraging the industry-leading flexibility of the Total Access 5000 solution.

“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.”
