ADTRAN Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN) says that MonCre Telephone Cooperative, a telephony, broadband, and ISP based in Ramer, AL, will use ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 platform to migrate its infrastructure to Active Ethernet fiber to the home (FTTH).

With the first phase of deployment already begun, MonCre is now able to deliver high-speed broadband and IP telephony services to residential customers, plus business Ethernet services to small and medium business customers. When the upgrade is complete, MonCre will have approximately doubled its network capacity to support high-bandwidth triple-play and Ethernet services to 100% of its residential and business customers in Montgomery, Crenshaw, Pike and Bullock counties.

In the future, MonCre plans to deploy ADTRAN’s modular Ethernet access gateway, the NetVanta 8044M in combination with the Total Access 5000 to create an end-to-end Ethernet access product for cell-site backhaul.

"ADTRAN is a trusted, strategic partner for MonCre Telephone, having supplied key technology in support of our business voice services for years. As we moved forward with our evolution plans to an all-IP network, selecting ADTRAN was a natural extension of that relationship," said David Hubbard, general manager, MonCre Telephone. "The ability to leverage ADTRAN’s complete product portfolio with all of the benefits that brings to our network, combined with world-class technology solutions, made it an easy decision to move to an all-ADTRAN network infrastructure."
