ADTRAN Adds System-Level Vectoring To Widely Deployed Broadband Platforms

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced the addition of system-level vectoring to its comprehensive global broadband portfolio. Vectoring enables service providers to maximize their network infrastructure by leveraging deep fiber deployments and VDSL2 over existing customer drop facilities to deliver ultra-broadband services delivering up to 200Mbps to the home based on two-pair bonding and enabling premium entertainment services.

ADTRAN’s embedded base of more than 100,000 multi-service access nodes (MSANs) and 100,000 small form-factor DSLAM sites affords its existing customer base tremendous upgrade potential without requiring a major overhaul to existing infrastructure in order to deliver competitive speeds and services. Additionally, ADTRAN’s top three global VDSL2 market share position and early leadership with vectoring standards and technology development offers unique experience that carriers worldwide can leverage. ADTRAN has helped the world’s leading service providers deliver business services for more than 25 years, and has been a top tier provider of residential solutions for the last decade as well. Carriers are demanding converged solutions so that consumer and business services can be delivered over the same access network and, at the same time, they must also offer speeds competitive with DOCSIS 3.0 enabled networks and contain costs to insure viable business cases. These market drivers, along with the maturity of key next generation technologies in recent years and ADTRAN’s core competency of customer partnership, create an inflection point for ADTRAN and its large embedded customer base to make the most of all the benefits that vectoring has to offer.

System-level vectoring allows service providers to realize ultra-broadband speeds, delivering up to 200Mbps to the home based on two-pair bonding and enabling premium entertainment services. With the rapid uptake of high-definition television, video on demand services and consumer voice over IP (VoIP), traditional fixed access service providers have been looking for a way to remain competitive against cable MSOs. Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) deployments are being utilized for a portion of their subscriber base, but a solution is still needed to serve remaining customers, including those in the “final third” service areas. VDSL2 vectoring uses crosstalk cancellation, an advanced DSL transmission technology and improves subscriber bandwidth by up to 90%.
