ADTRAN (NASDAQ:ADTN) has added the ADTRAN SDX 621X - a 10G PON residential FTTH optical network terminal (ONT) - to its portfolio of 10G PON business ONTs.

The SDX 621X is designed to support symmetrical 10G PON technologies and uses a flexible optics approach to support existing FTTH subscribers, while also supporting higher-bandwidth business and 4G/5G "anyhaul" services over a single, common network.

The ADTRAN Total Access 5000 fiber broadband platform combines integrated packet optical transport, 100G switching, combined with PON redundant multi-gigabit FTTH broadband service delivery.

"The original use cases for 10G PON focused on multi-gigabit enterprise and infrastructure backhaul services, given the high costs of 10G PON ONT optics," said Ovum Principal Analyst Julie Kunstler. "Technical innovation, as seen within the ADTRAN 10G PON solution, along with economies of scale spurred by 10G deployments globally, are driving down the cost difference between GPON and 10G. Consequently, 10G PON is now a viable option for residential subscriber deployments, and operators understand the competitive and future-proofing benefits of moving to 10G."

The SDX621X offers a multi-gigabit, symmetrical alternative to single gigabit capable GPON, EPON, Gfast and DOCSIS 3.1 services being deployed today and is supported by the ADTRAN Mosaic Subscriber Experience suite.

"The demand for higher capacity fiber access will continue to grow as new applications enter the market and operators look to increase efficiency by converging all services onto a common infrastructure," said ADTRAN Portfolio Director for Fiber Access Ryan McCowan. "With 100G switching, 10G access, and now mass-market 10G CPE, covered by end-to-end open service orchestration, ADTRAN is leading the next wave in fiber broadband."
