ADTRAN unveils ADTRAN Advanced Services Architecture
Oct 07, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
ADTRAN, Inc., a provider of networking solutions, has announced the introduction of the ADTRAN Advanced Services Architecture.
Available across the entire ADTRAN ultra broadband portfolio, the ADTRAN Advanced Services Architecture helps carriers make the transition towards network convergence and service consolidation by offering a robust, resilient and redundant infrastructure that is ideally suited for triple-play as well as service level agreement (SLA) based business and backhaul services.
This breakthrough architecture is optimized to deliver a mix of residential, enterprise and mobile backhaul services over a common, next-generation network while offering advanced service management and forward-looking network automation capabilities.
The ADTRAN Advanced Services Architecture features network automation and services management with web-services APIs to drastically simplify end-to-end provisioning of FTTP, FTTN, and Carrier Ethernet services, while abstracting service layer functions to support the transition to SDN and NFV environments; optimized multi-service access platform (MSAP) solutions for both ANSI and ETSI markets which include a compact, edge-optimized MSAN for remote cabinet and building basement aggregation for a full range of services access modules; high-density, non-blocking fiber aggregation for 1G and GPON service delivery with non-blocking backplane connectivity; and full range of network termination equipment and customer premises equipment including broadband-optimized gateways, ONTs and ONUs to support zero-touch activation of enterprise services, small cell backhaul, and multi-dwelling unit (MDU) locations.
Integrated packet optical aggregation and transport provides more efficient edge aggregation and separation of residential, enterprise and backhaul services. Network and subscriber interfaces include high-density DWDM, 10G, and OTN, ideally suited for data center and mobile network connectivity. The architecture features greater sustainability by the elimination of multi-box aggregation and enterprise gateway solutions and optimized architectural models to more efficiently deliver services while lowering operational costs and driving down power consumption.
The ADTRAN Advanced Services Architecture also features network transformation with VDSL2 and system level vectoring to support 100+ Mbps residential/small cell and 800 Mbps enterprise service delivery over existing copper facilities. A full range of EoCu and EoTDM aggregation and gateway solutions deliver SLA-based, Ethernet services over existing infrastructure, while easing the transition to an all-fiber network.
The architecture features TDM transition across three key areas with integrated voice gateway to easily migrate from TDM to VoIP architectures for voice transformation in FTTx and switch collapse applications; integrated TDM gateway for migration of TDM services onto an all-Ethernet network; and ADTRAN's industry-leading IPBG portfolio to support advanced IP Telephony solutions.
"All service segments in the wireline network are converging towards a future-state that consists of high-capacity, SLA-based Ethernet and wavelength services that can be delivered at any point in the network with rapid service activation," said Robert Conger, director, product management, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division.
"The ADTRAN Advanced Services Architecture is enabling our customers to address this industry transition in a way that is truly delivering on the promise of consolidating and integrating business, residential and mobile backhaul service delivery onto a single network."
