ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced the expansion of its award-winning Optical Networking Edge (ONE®) solution. The Total Access® 5004 ONE platform is a right-sized, access-optimized packet optical transport solution that provides service providers with a more versatile, highly-dense packaging design to help meet the growing needs of backhaul, business and residential customers. Available in a temperature-hardened, modular, compact two rack unit (RU) form factor, the new platform leverages the same ONE enterprise and broadband modules and software as ADTRAN’s premier Total Access 5000 platform. This capability enables services providers to easily, cost-effectively and seamlessly scale services and delivery footprint as the market continues to develop.
ADTRAN’s ONE solution suite provides the capacity upgrades desperately needed at the edge of the network by integrating key packet optical technologies into a single, common access and aggregation platform. This allows service providers to quickly and cost-effectively handle the network impact of future gigabit and 10G services growth. The ONE platform supports high service availability capabilities such as hardware redundancy and protection, resilient Ethernet, OTN and optical ring architectures and 1+1 carrier grade configurations. The compact solution, along with the higher capacity Total Access 5000, are supported by ADTRAN’s Advanced Operational Environment (AOE) services management, a non-service-affecting, portal-based tool to provide intuitive, proactive reporting on items such as SLA compliance, customer bandwidth and other performance statistics.
“Emerging applications, such as LTE-Advanced, high-capacity video and cloud services, are pushing packet optical technologies deeper into the access network to meet the mounting packet capacity requirements,” according to Rick Talbot, Principal Analyst, Optical Infrastructure, at Current Analysis. “The ADTRAN Total Access 5004 packaging of ADTRAN’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) architecture combines high packet switching capacity with the broad service support of the ADTRAN Total Access 5000 family, making it well suited to meet the unique requirements of next-generation services access at the network edge.”
