ADTRAN Adds Active Ethernet FTTP

ADTRAN has added an advanced Active Ethernet solution to its Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) offering, allowing operators to deploy point-to-point fiber infrastructure to provide up to 1 Gbps bidirectional bandwidth per subscriber. ADTRAN already offered a GPON solution.

The Active Ethernet solutions include a new Total Access 5000 Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and an enhanced suite of new Total Access 300 Series Optical Network Terminals (ONTs). The solution uses Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) optics enabling services to be deployed over a single fiber or a pair of fibers at distances of 10, 20, 40 or 80 km. The Total Access 5000 24-port Active Ethernet OLT uses a simplified provisioning model and is fully integrated into the Total Access Element Management System (EMS) for plug-and-play operation, ease of troubleshooting, and complete performance monitoring.
