The ONE solution was recognized for its raw innovation, unique features and ground-breaking contributions towards improving next-generation networks and communications technology. The solution, which allows traffic from multiple service offerings to be managed in a single platform, enables service providers to successfully optimize their network assets and grow their market opportunity in mobile and residential backhaul applications. “ADTRAN’s ONE helps service providers address the growing demand for premium, high-bandwidth video and data services. The one-of-a-kind solution provides the scalability and flexibility needed to address the bandwidth challenges required for business and residential services,” said Mano Nachum, Packet Optical Networking Product Line Manager for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “ONE simplifies users’ ability to address current and future network needs by eliminating multi-box complexity and the need for expensive overlay builds. As a result, service providers can realize quicker time-to-revenue and improve market competiveness.” In order to meet the growing bandwidth demand to deliver business services up to 10Gbps, service providers are leveraging ONE to cost effectively bridge the gap between their access and transport networks and extend the efficiencies of the core to the optical edge and middle mile applications. ONE’s service separation functionality enables service isolation for network operators to simultaneously offer residential and business Ethernet along with wholesale backhaul services without compromised quality of service. Combined with the ADTRAN Advanced Operational Environment (AOE), ONE also enables service providers to meet the strict service level agreement (SLAs) requirements of their customers and partners. “ADTRAN has been recognized for their exceptional work in advancing next-generation services and technologies.
