ADTRAN introduces ActivReach Ethernet technology

Oct 09, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- ADTRAN, Inc., a provider of cloud connectivity, enterprise communications and virtual mobility solutions, has introduced ActivReach, an Ethernet technology to support all grades of wiring.

According to the company, ActivReach extends service reach over three times beyond the limits of standard Ethernet and delivers high-speed voice, data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) all from a single device. The initial application for ActivReach is in ADTRAN's new NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet switch which enables businesses and service providers' flexibility in designing networks across long distances of CAT3, CAT5 and CAT6 cable. This capability allows businesses around the world to utilize their existing voice-grade wiring infrastructure to access IP-based voice, hosted services, cloud-based unified communications (UC), and deliver data networking speeds at 100Mbps, the company said.

"The NetVanta 1535P with ActivReach is currently the only solution that can realistically provide a path for a Gigabit future while removing the traditional limitations of existing voice-grade wiring," said Patrick Price, product manager for ADTRAN's Ethernet Switching product line. "With ActivReach, businesses-regardless of their location, cabling infrastructure or IT budget-will now be able to leverage a cost-effective solution for both voice and desktop connectivity in a way they have not been able to do before."
