DECEMBER 6, 2010 -- ADTRAN Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN) expanded its family of sealed outside plant broadband products with the addition of the Total Access 1108VP. The new system is designed to enable operators to quickly provide advanced broadband triple-play services in any high-density, low line count FTTx application. It is specifically targeted for multiple dwelling unit (MDU) and legacy fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC) upgrades.
“Operators worldwide continue to demand access products that will help make the most out of their investment in access facility networks,” said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst, Infonetics. “The 1108VP gives operators another tool to efficiently deliver the high-bandwidth services subscribers want as an alternative to fiber-to-the-home.”
The Total Access 1108VP is the only fully sealed and submersible product available, ADTRAN asserts, which enables deployment in a variety of environments, including underground. The Gigabit Ethernet-fed system has two Gigabit Ethernet ports for network connectivity and chaining additional units. It also offers eight VDSL2 and POTS subscriber ports for migration to next-generation services.
The Total Access 1108VP enables rapid installation of up to 100 Mbps or more of advanced triple-play services into MDUs, extending the reach of Gigabit Ethernet deployments where pulling fiber to each service location is impractical or not cost-effective, ADTRAN says. It is equally at home in the outside plant, in areas where the number of subscribers calls for a small but flexible and expandable service delivery platform.
According to Darrell Brown, product line manager, ADTRAN, “With the addition of the Total Access 1108VP, ADTRAN is able to offer yet another highly effective tool in the belt of next-generation access deployment. The hardened construction, small form factor and energy-efficient design combined with the ability to utilize existing infrastructure makes this the most robust and economical solution on the market today for MDU and FTTx applications.”
The Total Access 1108VP is currently shipping and is deployed in multiple live networks.
