Tennessee Cooperative picks ADTRAN for broadband stimulus project

ADTRAN Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) says that Tennessee’s largest telephone cooperative, Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative Corp., has selected the Total Access 5000 multi-service access platform and Advanced Operational Environment (AOE) services management offering for use throughout its network. ADTRAN's equipment will be used to deliver residential and business services including triple-play services (voice, video and data) as well as IPTV over FTTH.

Twin Lakes provides telecommunications services to Northern Middle Tennessee, with a network covering approximately 1,900 square miles, 32,000 subscribers and 15,000 broadband customers. The operator has secured a broadband stimulus award to bring next-generation services to more than 12,000 business and residential customers, and for high-bandwidth mobile backhaul. 

Twin Lakes said a key reason it chose ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 system was the ability to configure and provision multiple services from a single platform. In addition, with the use of the Total Access 5000, Twin Lakes can easily deploy mobile backhaul services using a variety of gigabit fiber connections.

"ADTRAN’s FTTH solution combined with the service management features of AOE allowed us to streamline our operations and immediately offer cutting-edge, revenue-generating services to our customers," said Jonathan West, general manager and CEO, Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative.

Last month, ADTRAN announced that it had boosted the capacity of the Total Access 5000 platform (see "ADTRAN Doubles Total Access 5000 Active Ethernet, GPON FTTH capacity").
