ADTRAN Powers United Communications’ Broadband Upgrade

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that its Total Access ® 5000 broadband platform is enabling United Communications to upgrade its network to deliver high-bandwidth triple play services to its subscriber base in central Tennessee. With over 20,000 access lines deployed, United Communications is now able to deliver a rich set of Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) services - including video, voice and data - that rival any found in any metro network across the country.

United Communications chose ADTRAN to meet the growing demand from residential and business customers for next-generation services like IPTV and to increase network bandwidth for popular activities such as online gaming, photo sharing and video streaming, and critical business communications. One advantage of leveraging ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 for this broadband deployment is that United Communications is now able to perform this upgrade over both its existing copper and new fiber infrastructures, scale higher value services quickly and reach a broader set of customers with these advanced services.

The flexible and innovative design of ADTRAN’s broadband access platform allows United Communications to economically address both legacy and next-generation services. By reducing loop lengths to maximize the performance of the VDSL and ADSL2+ copper access technologies in their network, United Communications can deliver ultra-broadband speeds over their copper infrastructure with ADTRAN’s Total Access 1100 series sealed Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) broadband access solutions. The combination of the Total Access 1100 series and the Total Access 5000 platform gives United Communications a migration path toward a converged network architecture which will reduce both capital and operational expenses moving forward. As United Communications continues to deploy even more fiber in their network, they are now able to expand the availability of faster broadband speeds of up to 10Gbps all from a single platform. The Total Access 5000 system functions as a full featured FTTH and FTTN aggregator and flexible access platform that enables United Communications the ability to meet a variety of legacy and emerging service requirements while accommodating growth in their network.
