Alabama’s NHTC upgrades FTTH broadband network with Adtran

Dec. 12, 2022
The co-op is upgrading its fiber to the home (FTTH) network to enable provision of multi-gigabit fiber broadband services to keep pace with both growing subscriber demands as well as increased competition.

Adtran, Inc. says it is supplying elements of its end-to-end fiber broadband portfolio to Alabama’s New Hope Telephone Cooperative (NHTC). The co-op is upgrading its fiber to the home (FTTH) network to enable provision of multi-gigabit fiber broadband services to keep pace with both growing subscriber demands as well as increased competition, Adtran states.

The FTTH network technology now under deployment in NHTC’s service area includes Adtran Mosaic One cloud software for network management and market intelligence and Adtran Connected Home home networking offerings as well as Adtran’s 10G fiber access platform. The latter’s Combo PON technology enables NHTC to roll out XGS-PON capabilities while supporting current GPON subscribers.

“Being a rural broadband provider means you have to do more for less, and that’s exactly what Adtran enables us to do. Mosaic One allows us greater visibility into our entire access network as well as the customer’s in-home experience, ensuring maximum broadband uptime for our customers. It also reduces truck rolls by utilizing our network operations center to remotely troubleshoot subscriber issues,” said Daniel Martin, general manager at NHTC. “Knowledge is power, and that’s precisely what we get with Adtran. Having access to network insights, customer trends, and key marketing metrics allows us to be much more proactive in identifying network issues and customer needs.”
