ADTRAN Doubles Capacity of Total Access 5000 to 5,376 GPON Subs

ADTRAN has doubled the capacity of its flagship Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access and Aggregation Platform enabling to support 5,376 GPON subscribers and 504 Active Ethernet subscribers per chassis. The higher density helps network operators to scale Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) service offerings.

ADTRAN is also introducing a new family of universal ONTs which bring auto-sensing support for both Active Ethernet and GPON, simplifying deployments with a single ONT for both technologies.

"ADTRAN's new additions to their FTTH portfolio and ability to support us long term were key deciding factors in our evaluation of solutions available in the market today," said Richard Cavin, senior network manager, Valley Telephone (VTCI). "The added scalability and density of the Total Access 5000 with the new 24-port Active Ethernet module made it a perfect fit for our project, allowing VTCI to reach twice as many customers from a single chassis without adding any additional complexity to our network." http://www.adtran.com
