ADTRAN Unveils Single Vendor Networks with Open Interfaces for Fiber Broadband
HUNTSVILLE, AL: ADTRAN, provider of networking solutions, releases an open standard based carrier grade set of fiber broadband access solutions that covers the entire access network from central office to the customer premises. The open interface solution will allow ADTRAN to unlock a single vendor access network.
The open interface solution enables operators to select the best solutions from multiple providers to ease deployment models and enhance services that generate revenue. Unlike the earlier releases of Fiber to the Home (FTTH) broadband networks that used a closed system limiting service providers to a single vendor for fiber aggregation and Optical Network Terminal (ONT) equipment, an open system offers network wide services and solutions.
ADTRAN offers various backhaul services using an open and interoperable broadband access network which include ADTRAN MSAN (Multi Service Access Nodes) that interoperate with ADTRAN’s ONT portfolios, business gateways, MDU (Multi Dwelling Unit) switchesand support third party developed ONTs; ADTRAN G.fast Fiber-to-the-Distribution Point and 10G FTTH MDU solutions supporting TR-301 defined YANG (Yet Another Next Generation) and REST (Representational State Transfer) interfaces making them interoperable with open multi vendor MSAN network. In addition, the ADTRAN equipment portfolio which comprises FTTH-enabled IP business gateways, FTTH Wi-Fi integrated residential gateways, and micro ONTs – are compliant to BBF.247 that offer higher level of interoperability across multi-vendor access networks.
“The pace of network innovation and new services introduction has been slowed due to proprietary network connections and disparate operational models between different vendors. This is driving the need for a fully open, software defined programmable network,” says Chris Thompson, Director, Customer Device Portfolio, ADTRAN.
