JUNE 23, 2009 -- South Central Rural Telephone Cooperative (SCRTC), one of the largest independent telephone companies in Kentucky, has selected ADTRAN Inc.'s (search Lightwave for ADTRAN) Total Access 5000 Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) and Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) for triple-play service delivery. The equipment enables SCRTC to deliver voice, IPTV, and high-speed data over ADSL2+, bonded ADSL2+, and GPON.
"After evaluating many access vendors, we selected the ADTRAN Total Access 5000 for its unmatched capacity and flexibility in an all-Ethernet platform. The Total Access 5000 allows us to offer a multiplay solution that includes HD content to meet evolving consumer needs," said Dave Davis, operations manager, SCRTC. "This solution will allow both business and residential customers to benefit from increased bandwidth and reliability, while at the same time providing us with the ability to expand our service offering in the future."
SCRTC's network migration of more than 18,000 video subscribers from ATM-based access platforms to an all-Ethernet network is currently underway. The network migration includes central offices as well as remote cabinets, all capable of advanced service delivery over copper and fiber to the home (FTTH).
