ADTRAN introduces MetNet 60GHz fixed wireless CPE

ADTRAN introduced its new MetNet 60GHz high-powered version 2 (HPv2) CPE for extending gigabit symmetric services beyond the reach of the existing fiber network, whether it is a residential broadband, enterprise, backhaul or smart city use case.

The ADTRAN MetNet 60GHz HPv2 CPE, which was developed using technology built by Cambridge Communication Systems (CCS), uses a 90-degree phased array antenna that can now extend gigabit symmetric services out to 500 meters beyond the mesh nodes.

ADTRAN said its MetNet 60GHz solution, inclusive of both CPE and mesh nodes, delivers on the promise of a robust, self-optimizing millimeter wave (mmWave) gigabit fixed wireless network. It is designed to reach residential, campus, smart city and business customers, as well as support backhaul/midhaul small cell densification initiatives. The next-generation CPE significantly reduces the cost per subscriber connected, offering a small form factor while retaining maximum link performance. The mesh nodes automatically form multi-gigabit backhaul links to neighboring nodes, which enables multi-gigabit drop capability at the mesh node or to aggregate the subtending gigabit CPE. Additionally, mesh and CPE radios can be easily added without RF engineering to further simplify network scalability. Multiple mesh nodes can be connected into the core network at different 1GE or 10GE fiber point of presence locations to offer additional network capacity and improved resiliency.

“The ADTRAN MetNet 60GHz solution is an innovative self-configuring, self-optimizing and self-healing solution that makes it simple to deploy as well as maintain. This affords new broadband service entrants with lean operations and provides those with limited wireless expertise the ability to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy an ultra-low latency, gigabit-capable access network,” said Michael Kletchko, Head of Market Development for Fixed Wireless Access Solutions at ADTRAN. “As operators look to build their best broadband network, ADTRAN is helping to eliminate the digital divide by making gigabit services available over any infrastructure.”

This 100G transport network is required to support the ever-increasing broadband demands and bandwidth-intensive applications such as 4K video streaming, gaming and cloud-based services. Totah’s network spans rural communities in Oklahoma and Kansas, and it believes that having the 100G transport network will play a key role in improving customers’ broadband experience.

“With the 100G available, we have the scale needed to expand the range and reach of our Fiber-to-the-Premise services without the added capital and operational impact of adding a new platform to our network,” said Totah Communications President and General Manager Mark Gailey. “ADTRAN’s ability to deliver one platform with the Total Access 5000 that can scale to meet today’s needs and tomorrow’s, is the type of streamlined, operationally efficient system that makes it the ideal solution as we expand our fiber rollouts. There is no need to maintain two network infrastructures. This allows Totah to use USF dollars to continue to get the speeds our customers demand, and the FCC requires.”

In addition, ADTRAN is now providing up to 560 Gbps uplink capacity and 1.2Tbps of switching capacity as part of the TA5000 platform. It provides the scaled network capacity required by mass deployment of multi-gigabit services over 10G PON and is the ideal addition to ADTRAN’s broad 10G existing portfolio. The SM200 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) support together with the TA5000 Optical Network Edge capabilities provides flexibility for network transport, and network deployment options from both Central Office (CO) and Remote Terminal (RT) locations.

“To support multiple 10G PON service delivery, the SM200 Switch Module supports non-blocking connectivity to every access module slot,” said ADTRAN Product Line Manager Javier Lopez. “The increased capacity of the switch fabric for the Total Access 5000 SM200 allows operators to scale both network and subscriber bandwidth for years to come—without a forklift replacement.”

The Total Access 5000 SM200 Switch Module is SD-Access ready and available now.

toob selects ADTRAN for fibre rollout in the UK

toob, a full fibre broadband provider in the UK, is working with ADTRAN on the rollout of its gigabit-capable fibre network.  The goal is to deliver gigabit speeds to more than 100,000 premises by the end of 2021, with initial deployments across the South of England.

ADTRAN provided toob with full turnkey support that included the delivery, installation and commissioning of toob’s core, transport and access network. The deployment includes the ADTRAN TA5000 gigabit services platform,.

“The UK’s digital infrastructure is uncompetitive at present with only 8% of premises being able to access a full fibre connection. At toob we are committed to bringing the benefits of full fibre to all sectors of society in the communities in which we operate,” said toob CEO Nick Parbutt. “We are executing quickly to pass 100,000 premises by the end of 2021 on our way to passing more than 1 million premises over the next decade. ADTRAN has matched our ambitious pace with delivering our network into Southampton in a matter of months, and I look forward to developing a stronger partnership over the coming years.”

“Gigabit broadband has quickly transitioned from a luxury service to a requirement—businesses and consumers require those high-bandwidth connections to learn, work and play,” said ADTRAN VP of EMEA Sales Stuart Broome. “We are committed to helping broadband providers, like toob, build and expand their best networks in order to bring the benefits of gigabit services to every community they serve.”

ADTRAN trims Q3 estimates citing pause from 2 international customers

ADTRAN trimmed its preliminary estimates for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, saying it now expects revenue for the quarter to be approximately $114 million. Earnings per share for the quarter, assuming dilution, is expected to be a loss of approximately $0.96. Non-GAAP earnings per share for the quarter, assuming dilution, is expected to be a loss of approximately $0.06.

ADTRAN Chief Executive Officer Tom Stanton stated, “Our revenue this quarter has been significantly impacted by a pause in shipments to a Tier 1 customer in Latin America and the continued slowdown in the spending at an international Tier 1 customer. With the exception of these two large customers, revenues generated from the rest of our business grew 20% over the previous quarter. Although we expect our Latin American customer sales to rebound, our current visibility regarding timing is limited. For the international Tier 1 customer, we expect that sales should resume with the new capital cycle in 2020.”

Our current expectation for revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019, is that it will be flat to slightly down from the third quarter. Additionally, we plan for our non-GAAP operating expenses during the fourth quarter to be approximately 10% below our second quarter non-GAAP expense rate.
