Customer Case Study: Ohio's Arthur Mutual Telephone Switches To ADTRAN's Total Access(R) 5000 For A Next-generation Rural FTTH Network. (http://bit.ly/QIIM5g)

Stock quotes in this article: ADTN

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Arthur Mutual Telephone Company (“Arthur”), a cooperative telephone company serving rural northwest Ohio, has selected ADTRAN to power its next-generation Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) network. After realizing its former incumbent vendor’s DSL platform could not deliver the desired bandwidth necessary for triple play services, like IPTV, Arthur modernized its network with ultra-high speed broadband over fiber through a Rural Utilities Service (RUS) loan from the US Department of Agriculture. Arthur chose the ADTRAN Total Access® 5000 platform as the foundation for this upgraded network for its scalability and flexible point-to-point Active Ethernet architecture, enabling Arthur to deliver services to residential and business customers over one of the most advanced networks in Ohio.

One of the critical factors for Arthur during the selection process was choosing an ultra-flexible, high-capacity fiber solution that could help them future-proof the network and maximize their investment. ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 helps Arthur ensure they can cost-effectively accommodate current and future bandwidth challenges by providing the flexibility to deploy fiber from either the central office or remote terminals. Grouping fiber terminations from the home at a remote terminal saves the additional costs of running fiber all the way back to the central office from each subscriber. In addition, the platform’s central office equipment and remote terminals will be interconnected through a 10Gbps ERPS ring where, if congested, Arthur can easily expand to multiple 10Gbps links over existing fiber using ADTRAN’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) solution, providing Arthur with virtually unlimited bandwidth.

“During our trials and analysis for the FTTH roll-out, ADTRAN stood out amongst all the companies we evaluated. The flexibility and robustness of the Total Access 5000, as well as ADTRAN’s reputation for working closely with service providers to ensure success of the deployment, gave us no doubt that ADTRAN was the right partner for us,” said Eric Roughton, general manager for Arthur. “We know we are well positioned to meet future growth in services and subscribers and have greater peace-of-mind knowing we’ve made a future-proof investment.”
