ADTRAN Advances its Optical Networking Edge

ADTRAN has broadened its Optical Networking Edge (ONE) portfolio to support scalable, multi-ring architectures and extend optical networking.

ADTRAN's Optical Networking Edge (ONE) integrates network access and aggregation with optical edge metro transport using the company's flagship Total Access 5000 platform. This is achieved using a mini-ROADM transport module card with advanced network management capabilities.

The new enhancements combine Packet Optical Transport System (P-OTS) with Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) and Ethernet LAN (ELAN). This enables the operator to extend resilient any-to-any Ethernet services across middle mile networks.

"ADTRAN's ONE solution provides unmatched network edge scalability that can now be extended to middle mile applications for delivery of both legacy and innovative new business and residential services, as well as handle the increasing traffic from 4G/LTE mobile services,�? said Mano Nachum, packet optical networking product line manager, ADTRAN's Carrier Networks Division. "Our customers rely on ADTRAN as their strategic network evolution partner and we are committed to delivering the solutions that enable them to grow in a capitally efficient and operationally simplified manner with best-in-class technologies."

Separately, ADTRAN announced that Consolidated Telephone has chosen to expand their existing Total Access 5000 infrastructure with ONE to provide an edge-optimizes Packet Optical Transport Solution. Consolidated Telephone serves business and residents in central Nebraska. http://www.adtran.com
