ADTRAN boosts packet optical transport capacity of Total Access 5000

March 25, 2013
ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN) has unveiled a single-slot Carrier Ethernet module for its flagship Total Access 5000 system that supports 8x10 Gigabit thernet optical transport with Ethernet switching. Fully stocked with the new card, the 21-slot Total Access 5000 will support more than 200 Gbps per slot.

ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN) has unveiled a single-slot Carrier Ethernet module for its flagship Total Access 5000 system that supports 8x10 Gigabit thernet optical transport with Ethernet switching. Fully stocked with the new card, the 21-slot Total Access 5000 will support more than 200 Gbps per slot.

The new module, dubbed the Ethernet Transport Optical Switch (ETOS-10), is built upon the company’s Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ETOS-1. ADTRAN says the addition to its Optical Networking Edge (ONE) line addresses the requirements for increasing scale in access and edge networks.

Primary features and benefits ADTRAN has identified for the ETOS-10 include:

  • Expanded premium services scalability supporting the rollout of 10-Gbps enterprise and data center services, 1-Gbps 4G/LTE mobile backhaul services, and 100-Mbps residential broadband services.
  • Reduced time-to-revenue via the increased network simplicity gained from the support of end-to-end multi-ring, mesh, and subtended 10GbE access ring topologies.
  • Increased quality of experience via reduced network latency and integrated advanced service level assurance (SLA) and services management toolset.

“From the start, ADTRAN’s ONE solution has been designed to reduce the complexity of packet optical networking to help service providers increase flexibility and simplify operations in order to accelerate next-generation service delivery for their customers,” said Mano Nachum, packet optical networking product line manager, ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “The addition of the ETOS-10 is another significant step ahead that establishes first to market leadership in delivering higher capacity, multi-10-Gbps packet optical Ethernet integrated with multi-services access and aggregation in a right-sized package.”
