ADTRAN intros cloud-managed WiFi solution for service providers

ADTRAN introduced a cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution that enables service providers to enter the large, underserved small business market.

Cloud-managed Wi-Fi services have been one of the fastest growing segments for enterprise cloud.

ADTRAN’s enterprise Wi-Fi offering includes the following:

  • 100% cloud-managed IT: No required subscriptions or licenses. No installation or management of on-premises controller or software.
  • Zero Touch AP Provisioning: APs automatically discover the cloud and download firmware configuration.
  • Zero-IT Setup: Fully functional employee and guest network in five minutes or less with just a few wizard-driven key strokes and mouse clicks.
  • Powerful enterprise-class APs: Efficient pricing at 75% lower than typical enterprise-class APs and licenses.
  • A “just right” feature set: Focused on robust enterprise connectivity and security with seamless upgrades to ADTRAN advanced features and flexible deployment options
  • Machine learning-powered Wi-Fi: Self-optimizing and healing technology that includes DynamicRF for automatically adjusting optimal radio settings, DynamicSteering for automatically steering clients to the best AP or radio within an AP; and DynamicMulticast,  whichprevents multicast traffic typically sent at low data rates from impacting overall performance by learning about traffic patterns and automatically adjusting optimal multicast settings.
  • Interactive support community: Optional upgrades to enhanced support
  • Every AP is a starting point: Scale from a handful of APs to thousands across multiple locations and customers

“Subscribers are increasingly judging the quality of their internet experience based on the quality of their Wi-Fi,” ADTRAN Manager of Wi-Fi Technology and Strategy Ken Fernandes said. “ADTRAN’s new enterprise-class Wi-Fi allows service providers to help their cost-conscious micro and small business customers by simply bundling ADTRAN APs, while reducing costs and complexity. Service providers can now upsell and seamlessly upgrade their subscribers to enhanced services and features, further increasing ARPU.”

Google's Super PON could be a game changer

Google is working on a "Super PON" architecture that could improve the economics of fiber-to-the-home deployments, said Claudio DeSanti, Architect at Google Fiber, speaking last week at ADTRAN's Broadband Business Solutions event in Huntsville, Alabama.

Google's foray into last mile fiber access networks dates back to 2010 when it announced plans to challenge the incumbent telcos and MSOs in the U.S. with a Google-branded and delivered gigabit broadband and TV service. Google Access picked Kansas City for its first deployment and opened a public comment process to identify future rollout locations. Nearly 1,100 communities across the country expressed interest in participating in the Google project and nearly 200,000 individuals submitted comments.

DeSanti presented the timeline that eventually took Google Access to 11 cities

Then, in October 2016, the Google Fiber project officially hit the pause button. Craig Barratt, who was CEO of Access, stepped down. The said it would continue rolling out in the cities in it was already present, but that is was pausing operations and laying off workers in many cities where it had once anticipated deploying an FTTH network. Google said its effort had spurred AT&T and others to get serious about FTTH, while holding out the possibility of reentering the market if and when new technology options became available.


De Santi said the major lessons learned from this undertaking were that building infrastructure is complex, especially the lengthy permitting process that varies from city to city, and that last mile construction and outside plant costs represent the bulk of spending, mostly because of labor. Google found aerial FTTH to be prohibitively expensive due to policy restrictions of pole sharing with utility companies.

Regarding future rollouts, DeSanti said Google is now taking a more practical perspective on running the business for profit and sustainability.

In February 2018, Dinesh (Dinni) Jain ws been appointed CEO of Access, the new name for the Google Fiber and Webpass business. Jain most recently served as Chief Operating Officer of Time Warner Cable.

DeSanti said the Super-PON architecture that his team is developing could be a game changer for several reasons. First, it targets a 50 km reach from the Central Office to the subscriber, rather than the 20km target of the current technology. The longer reach is achieved with amplification. This means a larger serving area per CO, and few COs needed to cover a whole city. For a mid-sized U.S. metropolitan area, the current PON architecture requires Google to operate 16 COs. The Super PON might need as few as 3 COs to do the same job. These CO could also be CDN distribution points. No active equipment is deployed outside the CO. It operates over a passive ODN.

Second, the Super PON targets up to 1,024 subscribers, up significantly from the maximum 64-subscriber split available on its current technology. With Super PON, DWDM is used to multiplex multiple channels over a single feeder fiber. DeSanti said few fibers would be needed to support the same number of customers, enabling the deployment of small cables (12-48 fiber cables versus 432-fiber cables). The advantage of smaller cables is that micro-trenching techniques can be used, cutting the time and cost of deployment. Repairs to a fiber cut could also be handled much faster for a 24-fiber cable (under 2 hours) versus 8-hours to repair a 432-fiber cable.

DeSanti noted that Super PON standardization began in January 2018 with a presentation at the New Ethernet Applications group of IEEE 802.3. Last month, IEEE 802.3 approved the formation of a Super PON Study Group. In parallel, Super PON has also been presented to both ITU-T and FSAN, possibly as an NG-PON2 extension. Google has a pre-standard implementation deployed in the field.

An open question is whether Super PON economics leads Google to unpause its Access ambitions.

ADTRAN heads Broadband Forum’s Application-Level Traffic Generation Testing

ADTRAN is leading an initiative within the Broadband Forum that will leverage application-level traffic generation for advanced broadband testing.

The idea is to develop standardized testing of dynamically reconfigured virtualized services, which can challenge traditional methods of performance characterization.

The first project in the Application-level Traffic Generation for Advanced Broadband Testing Project Stream is expected to be completed in late 2018, with follow-on projects in early 2019. It will deliver on the following principals:

  • Define and specify a model for the generation of test traffic at the application level that emulates real-time domain behavior of multiple applications from multiple subscribers.
  • Create a reference implementation for use in test cases in Open Broadband Labs and in other test environments as developed by the Broadband Forum and other industry stakeholders.
  • Primarily address high-speed internet access for residential use. In a later phase, business applications could also be addressed.


“This initiative will benefit service providers, vendors and testing labs by fundamentally allowing them to manage the increasingly complex subscriber traffic on the network as application and service parameters change and evolve,” Broadband Forum CEO Robin Mersh said. “The project stream will have far-reaching positive effects on the entire industry and is why the Broadband Forum is championing it. ADTRAN’s domain experience in helping the industry transition to a more flexible, scalable and secure software-defined access network is certainly appreciated.”

“As carriers invest in upgrading the access infrastructure and look to leverage the service creation capabilities now available, it is critical that testing evolves to keep pace and ensure that the promises of software-defined access are realized,” ADTRAN Senior Staff Scientist and Project Stream Leader Ken Ko said. “ADTRAN has played an instrumental role in bringing this work forward and we look forward to collaborating with our peers within the Broadband Forum to advance this important work.”

Tunisie Telecom deploys ADTRAN's outside DSLAMs

Incumbent operator Tunisie Telecom (TT) is deploying ADTRAN's sealed outside plant (OSP) DSLAMs, which feature unique Discrete Multi-Tone (DMT) capabilities to deliver next-generation copper-based broadband services to locations where laying fiber is cost-prohibitive and/or electrical power sources are unreliable or unavailable.

In trials conducted with TT, ADTRAN said its 1148VX OSP DSLAM delivered broadband rates in excess of 90Mb/s on loops of several hundred meters.

In extreme cases, where customers on loops exceeding 2 km in length were historically without service, the 1148VX OSP DSLAM is able to deliver reliable 20 Mb/s services and higher. ADTRAN also demonstrated the ability to reliably remote power its 1148VX OSP DSLAM through existing copper pairs from a central location several kilometers away.

Tunisia Telecom is also planning on bonding up to 8 existing twisted pairs of copper as data uplink plus remote power to expedite time to market and minimize cost of fiber uplink. The 1148VX is fiber-ready and will accept fiber uplink when fiber becomes available.

“By harnessing next-generation access technology in innovative and sustainable ways, TT can transform communities and boost local economic growth among residential and business subscribers,” said Werner Heinrich, director broadband solutions at ADTRAN. “Having already deployed over 130,000 of these nodes in some of the world’s harshest climates, ADTRAN is the market-leading choice for accelerating affordable broadband service deployment in these environments.”
