ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named ADTRAN’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) solution a recipient of the 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award. The 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award winners are published on the INTERNET TELEPHONY and Customer Interaction Solutions Websites. Recognized for its vision and leadership, ADTRAN’s ONE provides service providers with a flexible and efficient network architecture that easily scales to support bandwidth-intensive applications and services for residential and business subscribers. As a result, service providers are able to improve their market responsiveness to the ever-changing service and network requirements caused by growth and changes in traffic patterns within the network. “ONE has the ability to tackle the critical need for an efficient solution that can successfully address multiple broadband markets while continuing to deliver superior customer experience,” said Mano Nachum, Packet Optical Networking Product Line Manager for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “ADTRAN has a continued commitment to providing solutions that simplify operations, accelerate time-to-revenue and reduce costs. ONE is allowing service providers to unleash next-generation service capabilities through a solution with unprecedented scalability to address new subscriber markets and maintain critical quality-of-service for a better bottom line.” ONE is the only solution on the market that combines and accommodates Packet Optical Transport System (P-OTS) functions with advanced access and aggregation capabilities within a single device. By merging multiple optical services into a single platform, ONE helps service providers to eliminate the need for capital-intensive overlay builds usually required to support multiple service offerings. ONE’s service separation approach, for example, enables important service isolation for each mobile network operator that may share single cell sites or concurrently offer residential and business customers Ethernet as well as wholesale backhaul services.
In addition to addressing the effects of services growth on the access and aggregation points of the network, in August 2012 ADTRAN announced an expansion to the solution’s agile photonic capabilities. The new transport capabilities reduce operational complexity deeper into the network extending the ONE solution benefits from the access and edge down to the metro and middle-mile.“ADTRAN was chosen to receive a 2011 Product of the Year Award for creating outstanding advancements in communications,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “ONE has proven benefits for its customers and provides ROI for the companies that use it. Congratulations to the entire team at ADTRAN. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the coming year.” The 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award winners are published on the INTERNET TELEPHONY and Customer Interaction Solutions Websites.
