Medicine Park Telephone And ADTRAN Deliver First FTTH Service For Remote Oklahoma Communities

ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Medicine Park Telephone is deploying ADTRAN’s comprehensive broadband portfolio in its Broadband Stimulus funded, Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) high-speed broadband service. Currently served by a variety of Tier 1 and Tier 2 providers for telephony voice service, residents in these communities are vastly unserved – up to 100% of the households in some of the regions – by any type of high-speed broadband accessibility. Medicine Park’s FTTH service opens up connectivity to thousands of households in these remote access communities – some of which are isolated by a national wildlife refuge and others that reside in the former Kiowa-Comanche-Apache Reservation in southwestern Indian Territory.

Medicine Park Telephone is leveraging ADTRAN’s Total Access™ 5000 broadband access platform to deliver high-speed broadband, IP telephony and high-definition television services for the first time to residential customers plus high-value business Ethernet services to small business customers. The Total Access 5000 delivers these services over an all-Ethernet access platform with the GPON infrastructure providing up to 2.5Gbps of bandwidth. Medicine Park is also utilizing ADTRAN's modular Ethernet access gateway, the NetVanta ® 8044M, in combination with the Total Access 5000, for a complete end-to-end Ethernet access migration solution for 4G/LTE cell-site backhaul to further increase accessibility for its underserved customer base.

“For so long, residents in our remote communities have been lucky just to have reliable phone service, let alone any sort of high-speed broadband capability. Now, for the first time, we are able to deliver any mix of telephone, internet and television services that our residential and business customers need to be connected with the rest of the country,” said Eddie Hilliary, president, Medicine Park Telephone. “With ADTRAN, we are able to do this with the latest optical network technology and can provide our customers with the most advanced, next-generation services and infrastructure.”
