Adtran offers SDX 6330 disaggregated 10G Combo PON OLT

Jan. 26, 2023
The 2.5RU OLT is designed to support large-scale retail and wholesale fiber to the premises (FTTP) business cases with Combo PON (GPON and XGS-PON) and open network support.

Adtran, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) has introduced its third-generation optical line terminal (OLT), the SDX 6330. The 2.5RU OLT is designed to support large-scale retail and wholesale fiber to the premises (FTTP) business cases with Combo PON (GPON and XGS-PON) and open network support.

The SDX 6330 provides 48 Combo PON ports as well as 25/100/400 Gigabit Ethernet networking ports. The 400G uplink port capabilities are an industry first, Adtran asserts. The temperature-hardened OLT platform also will support coherent optics, the company adds. The system can be deployed in standalone, ring, star, chain, and leaf-spine topologies.

Adtran adds the SDX 6330 is designed to help meet corporate sustainability objectives by reducing power demand and landfill requirements.

“Service providers face a tough environment as they strive to keep up with growing subscriber needs, expand coverage and meet green targets. With households and businesses accessing more and more data-hungry applications, operators need strategies in place to handle the surge in a cost-effective and sustainable way. This challenge is precisely what our third-generation fiber access platform aims to address,” said Robert Conger, SVP of technology and strategy at Adtran. “Our SDX 6330 offers the network simplicity, sustainability and scalability needed to power the Gigabit Society. That’s what makes it a compelling alternative to chassis-based architectures. It’s the solution many operators are searching for as they look to expand their market share while improving customer experience.”
