ADTRAN Enables Cloud-Based Wireless LANs For Managed Service Providers

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of cloud connectivity, virtual mobility and enterprise communications solutions, today announced a new capability of the Bluesocket® virtual Wireless LAN (vWLAN ®) solution. Leveraging the flexible control capabilities of vWLAN, ADTRAN is now able to provide service providers and value-added resellers (VARs) with multiple customer-premise equipment (CPE) deployment options including resale, managed and cloud-hosted services. These options enable service providers and VARs to create new, profit-rich, cloud-based Wi-Fi service offerings. With the ADTRAN Bluesocket solution deployed, service providers can cost-effectively scale to support hundreds of customer WLANs, offering a cloud-based WLAN service without the expense of placing a hardware controller on the customer’s site.

Today, many service providers offer a managed WLAN service using a premises-based hardware controller. In this scenario, the controller increases the cost of the service and imposes operational constraints. ADTRAN’s software-based vWLAN solution utilizes virtualization and allows the controller to be based at the service provider’s network operations center (NOC) while the data sessions remain at the end-user’s LAN, thus avoiding the need to backhaul user traffic. With the control and management based at the NOC rather than tied to the end-user’s LAN, unprecedented levels of on-demand scale can be achieved, giving the service provider the ability to profitably address the demand for cloud-based Wi-Fi services.

vWLAN also has the capability to transition between deployment models without service interruption, giving a service provider an ability to meet the demands of customers as their business needs change. If an end-user customer who originally bought the solution in a resale model wants to transition to a cloud model, the service provider can execute that transition with no interruption in service or truck rolls. vWLAN’s centralized control and management simply changes from the end-user premises to the service provider’s NOC. This transition can be done in the middle of the business day with no interruption in any of the live data sessions.
