, (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, announced today a significant addition to the company’s market leading ultra-broadband portfolio, the Total Access
5004. Designed to address limitations commonly found in competitive small form-factor products, the Total Access 5004 provides separate data and control planes, carrier-class redundancy, complete non-blocking architecture, and the ability to scale to meet future needs. The compact solution is a multi-service access platform (MSAP) system designed to deliver higher rate premium services over fiber or copper deeper into the network. With this addition, the Total Access 5000 Series remains the industry’s most flexible ultra-broadband platform, enabling service providers to rapidly capture new revenue opportunities and reduce their capital and operating costs.
The new platform leverages ADTRAN’s Advanced Services
Architecture to deliver next-generation residential and business services onto a converged infrastructure. This provides service providers unprecedented architectural scalability with true carrier-class availability and performance at every scale point, from dozens to thousands of subscribers. The solution lowers the customer service take rate threshold for delivering premium services in underserved or other hard to reach areas, thus expanding the addressable service market and growing the top line of service providers. The ability to consolidate services onto a common access infrastructure provides operational cost savings due to a single network, all services approach.
“Service providers have been challenged to deploy next-generation broadband beyond the most profitable portions of their networks. As regulatory broadband targets loom operators need innovative carrier-class platforms that are cost-optimized for premium services delivery in not only dense urban areas but allow for profitable multi-service delivery in more far flung, hard to reach areas,” said Teresa Mastrangelo, principal analyst, Broadband Trends. “The Total Access 5004 has the ability to address two key growing market segments over a common converged infrastructure: providing for success-based migration from FTTN to FTTH in underserved, remote markets while also delivering high-performance broadband, cloud and backhaul services in expanding metro markets.”
