ADTRAN And CT Communications Deploy Advanced Technologies To Increase Bandwidth 30x For Ohio Residents And Businesses

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, announced today that CT Communications has increased the throughput of their high-speed broadband services by more than 30 times by leveraging ADTRAN’s Total Access® broadband platform. Optimized for premium services, ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 has enabled CT Communications to deliver a full range of next-generation services, like IPTV with full SD, HD and DVR capabilities, over both copper and fiber architectures for residential and business customers in western Ohio.

The flexibility and innovative design of ADTRAN’s broadband platform allowed CT Communications to economically deliver tomorrow's services today. CT Communications’ previous network equipment solution only allowed subscribers 1.5 Mbps internet download speeds and no video capabilities. After deploying the Total Access 5000, bandwidth service speeds have significantly increased with some customers having the ability to experience download speeds up to 50Mbps using the latest generation of copper technology, VDSL2. On the fiber side, ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 also offers CT Communications a high-capacity optical Ethernet access network that easily scales to handle the most bandwidth intensive services, enabling CT Communications to support compelling customer applications requiring 1Gbps upload and download speeds. This flexible point-to-point Active Ethernet architecture allows CT Communications to provide a more diverse product offer for both their premium residential and business services, increasing their overall services revenue potential.

“Our previous service speeds put us at a disadvantage in the marketplace, but now we are able to deliver competitive products and services to our customers by utilizing reliable, next-generation technology,” said Tim Bolander, Chief Technology Officer at CT Communications. “ADTRAN’s Total Access broadband platform has allowed us to provide high speed Internet and high definition video to meet our customers’ demands, while also providing us the flexibility to expand our product and service offer in the future.”

“Triple-play customers have a choice between service providers that offer an array of high-speed broadband services, so it is critical for service providers to deploy the most advanced technologies possible to stay competitive,” said Mitch Fleming, vice president of sales for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 makes it possible for service providers like CT Communications to exceed both their residential and business customer expectations both in bandwidth speeds and diverse product sets.”
