ADTRAN Commits to Open FTTH

ADTRAN is delivering on its open interface commitment and decoupling the closed equipment “lock-in” from fiber broadband access solutions.

The company said it is providing a standards-based carrier-grade set of products and solutions spanning the entire access network from the central office to the cabinet and the customer premises. Until now, carriers have been forced to choose  the same vendor for the fiber aggregation and the optical network terminal (ONT) equipment, limiting the available solution set.

ADTRAN multi-service access nodes (MSAN) seamlessly interoperate with its portfolio of ONTs, residential and business gateways, as well as MDU switches. The open interfaces of the ADTRAN MSANs also support third-party developed ONTs and Wi-Fi integrated residential gateways. ADTRAN G.fast Fiber-to-the-Distribution Point and 10G FTTH MDU solutions supporting TR-301 defined YANG and RESTful interfaces and making them both interoperable within an open multi-vendor MSAN network.

Finally, the ADTRAN customer premises equipment portfolio – which includes FTTH-enabled IP business gateways, FTTH Wi-Fi integrated residential gateways and micro ONTs – are compliant to BBF.247 in order to deliver a higher level of interoperability across multi-vendor access networks.

“The pace of network innovation and new services introduction has been slowed due to proprietary network connections and disparate operational models between different vendors. This is driving the need for a fully open, software defined programmable network,” said Chris Thompson, director, customer device portfolio, ADTRAN. “ADTRAN has helped build more open residential, business and backhaul networks than any other access supplier in the world and is committed to delivering the framework that will support the next-generation of broadband network deployments and services.”
