Deutsche Giga Access picks Adtran SDX fibre access platform

Deutsche Giga Access GmbH (DGA), a regional wholesale access provider in Germany, has selected the Adtran SDX Series of fibre access platforms to offer its customers scalable FTTH service capabilities.

Adtran said its Combo PON technology and software-defined architecture were differentiators that provided DGA an expedited path to market and the flexibility to simultaneously operate 1G and 10G FTTH networks on the same point-to-multipoint fibre optic distribution network and from a single OLT port. 

“DGA wanted to quickly deploy a Gigabit-capable FTTH network to a new area in Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany, and Adtran provided the right combination of technology, products, local support and domain experience,” said Andreas Bamberg, Chief Technology Officer at Deutsche Giga Access GmbH. “We chose Adtran because its approach allowed us to build a new, open-access wholesale network for future-proof services that can be controlled by an end-to-end automatisation management system, providing tremendous operational savings and efficiencies as demand for our wholesale offering grows.”

“With its new disaggregated Combo PON access solution, Adtran provides DGA the flexibility to offer GPON and XGS-PON services via the same port and fibre strand. This gives DGA the most cost-effective solution to operate via a fibre network,” said Stuart Broome, Vice President of Sales, EMEA, at Adtran. “The German altnet market is growing rapidly as operators look to bring fibre broadband to every household in Germany, having a reliable wholesale network supported locally and ready to help scale services will be a powerful resource for local and regional operators.”

ADTRAN cites XGS-PON/10G-EPON momentum

ADTRAN reported momentum with its XGS-PON/10G-EPON portfolio as operators upgrade their network capabilities to 10G. The company points to its Combo PON technology and software-defined access (SD-Access) approach as a fiber access game changer for the largest incumbent operators, regional service providers and community broadband providers in North America and Europ.

Recent research reports from Dell’Oro and Omdia highlight ADTRAN’s market impact and growth. Both research firms show ADTRAN as ranking #2 and #3 for XGS-PON OLT shipments in North America and in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) respectively on a four-quarter rolling basis. Further, ADTRAN XGS-PON and 10G EPON shipments have reached an inflection point where 50% of its OLT ports deployed in this period were based on its open and disaggregated SD-Access platforms across a mix of large metro central offices, hardened street cabinets and strand-mounted remote OLTs.

“ADTRAN is rapidly becoming the 10G fiber access supplier of choice to an industry that is realizing that 10G PON FTTH technology paired with AI-driven optimization is the best path to realizing its broadband goals,” said Robert Conger, Senior Vice President, Technology and Strategy at ADTRAN. “It is validating to see how the unique benefits of our open, software-defined platform are being adopted at pace by every type of network operator in the U.S. and Europe – from innovative altnets and rural community broadband providers, to many of the world’s largest service providers and MSOs.”

ADTRAN cites record demand and supply chain constraints

ADTRAN announced the following preliminary financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021:

  • revenue is expected to be $138 million, gross margin is expected to be 34.5%, non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be 34.6%, operating loss is expected to be $10.1 million and non-GAAP operating loss is expected to be $2.6 million. 
  • the lower gross margin and decreased profitability, as compared to prior guidance, was attributed to approximately $9 million in quantifiable supply chain constraint-related expenses incurred during the quarter. Without these expenses gross margin would be within our third quarter guidance range.
  • overall bookings in the third quarter were up 43% year-over-year with a book-to-bill ratio of 1.43 for the quarter, and 1.34 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. 

ADTRAN also stated its belief that supply chain challenges are peaking during the second half of 2021 and should begin to normalize by mid-2022. 


ADTRAN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tom Stanton stated, “We are experiencing record demand for our solutions with Q3 setting an all-time high for bookings in a quarter. This increased demand comes from a diverse mix of global Tier 1 and regional service providers planning to deploy our fiber access platforms, in-home service delivery platforms and SaaS applications. We expect this growth to accelerate. During the third quarter we secured two additional Tier 1 fiber customers, and previously announced Tier 1 fiber customers significantly increased their bookings for our fiber access platforms. Although our revenue growth and profitability in the near-term are impacted by the supply chain issues, our long-term outlook continues to strengthen given the record demand and the supply outlook.”

ADTRAN adds 60GHz mmWave mesh portfolio for access and backhaul

ADTRAN introduced a 60GHz mmWave mesh wireless access and backhaul solution designed to deliver a wide range of revenue-generating services from residential access, SMB Gigabit and multigigabit neutral host/open access applications for public Wi-Fi, and 5G small cell densification. 

The ADTRAN MetNet 60GHz solution—which includes the new Gen 2 mesh node, Gigabit-ready CPE and cloud-management—delivers twice the capacity and up to four times the reach of competing mmWave products, according to the company. It features self-organizing, self-optimizing and self-healing (SON) technology that extends Gigabit coverage up to 600 meters, is deployable in under 30 minutes and delivers high-capacity (15+ Gbps capacity per node) for wireless access and backhaul. 

ADTRAN says the MetNet 60GHz solution could be used to deliver Gigabit tier services to RDOF census block groups (CBGs), as well as support applications such as Gigabit to MDUs, smart city applications, 5G small cell backhaul or offer low-cost Gigabit point-to-point campus LAN extension.

“The ADTRAN MetNet 60GHz solution is the only solution that economically extends Gigabit service wirelessly to deliver both residential and business services where terrain, population density and regulations limit the deployment of fiber,” said Robert Conger, Senior Vice President, Technology and Strategy at ADTRAN. “Now more than ever, service providers are looking for innovative and reliable solutions that simplify the deployment and maintenance of Gigabit service architectures that create new revenue streams while lowering the total cost of service.”

Highlights for the ADTRAN MetNet 60GHz Gen 2 Mesh Node:

  • Dynamic bandwidth allocation capability for preserving spectrum resources, delivering deployment flexibility, and doubling the capacity available for users.
  • Support for all six channels in the 60GHz spectrum (57GHz-71GHz), cutting atmospheric attenuation by 90% and offering 50% greater channel selection and coverage.
  • Unique channel selection per sector and support for channels 5 and 6, delivering up to four times the reach of other new to market 60GHz mmWave products.
  • Four times more client connections per mesh node (up to 120 CPE or remote nodes) enabling faster network scale with fewer costly fiber drops.
  • Power consumption 80% lower power per Gigabit connection, requiring fewer mesh nodes, compared to competing 60GHz products.
  • Cloud-management for remote mesh topology setup, management, service configuration and upgrades, resulting in a network that is simple to deploy and manage.

ADTRAN's Combo PON been adopted by more than 100 operators

 ADTRAN's Combo PON technology, which launched in June 2020, has been adopted by more than 100 operators worldwide, including every type of service provider—from altnets, RDOF recipients, multinational Tier 1 operators and cable operators.

Combo PON makes upgrading to symmetrical 10G PON services simple by seamlessly supporting the installed base of GPON subscribers while blanketing the entire FTTH network with the higher speed and capacity of symmetric 10 Gbps XGS-PON. ADTRAN’s Combo PON technology is available across the company’s OLT portfolio, whether it is the disaggregated SDX 6000 series, integrated Total Access 5000 family of 10G fiber access platforms or its low-density remote OLTs (including the recently announced Micro-Cabinet).

“ADTRAN introduced Combo PON to close the debate on whether to deploy GPON or XGS-PON FTTH technology by providing a simplified and cost-effective network strategy just as carriers of all sizes, in all markets were focused on building new fiber networks,” said Robert Conger, SVP, Technology and Strategy at ADTRAN. “The proof of how relevant and impactful ADTRAN’s Combo PON has been in addressing this market demand is the unprecedented customer momentum we are witnessing.”

ADTRAN refreshes its line-up of Service Delivery Gateways

ADTRAN introduced a portfolio of Service Delivery Gateways (SDGs) featuring Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6.

The new line-up includes Ethernet, GPON and 10G XGS-PON residential gateways and Wi-Fi mesh access points (APs), all with a consistent elegant design.

ADTRAN said its SDGs are the first in the industry to leverage both EasyMesh, a standards-based approach to Wi-Fi networks that utilize multiple meshed APs, and OpenSync, an open-source interface that is a true differentiator due to its open approach and ability to accelerate deployment of services without reliance on customer premises equipment (CPE) silicon or integration partners.

The portfolio will integrate with ADTRAN's Mosaic One, which provides ISPs with a single pane view of their access and smart home network. Availability for these SDGs will begin Q4 2020, with additional solutions launching in 2021.
