ADTRAN Adds Total Access 1600 Series to Extend FTTH Portfolio

By admin, January 9, 2012 10:26 pm

Networking and communications equipment provider ADTRAN (News – Alert), Inc. has expanded its portfolio of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband access productline with the addition of Total Access 1600 series. According to ADTRAN, the new Total Access 1600 is a family of 1RU form-factor optical line terminals (OLTs) supporting either Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) or Ethernet FTTH (Active Ethernet).

ADTRAN said that the new OLTs provide a compact addition to it’s FTTH productline, offering an efficient solution for deployments with lower subscriber densities where lower port-counts are required. While the new solutions occupy less space, they are not limited when it comes to functionality, offering 40 Gbps per system network uplink capability, Ethernet ring support, multi-system link aggregation, and stacking options, said the manufacturer.


In a statement, said David Emberley, research manager for IDCs Telecommunications Equipment practice, “The market for bandwidth intensive applications has pushed deeper into the Tier 2 and 3 markets with more and more IOCs and smaller telecom operators looking at equipment that helps them compete effectively in this demanding market.” He added, “The ADTRAN Total Access 1600 should be a welcome addition to these operators given its value proposition, compact size and service density.”

The Total Access 1600 family enables deployments to fit any network need by providing multiple cost optimized access-side interface options: 4, 8, and 16-port GPON and 48-port Gigabit Ethernet. Full backward compatibility with the entire Total Access line of Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) ensures a smooth transition for service providers interested in expanding FTTH service coverage further into their existing network or incrementally offering the service into new areas.

In another statement, commented ADTRAN’s broadband access productline manager Darrell Brown, “The Total Access 1600 is the right solution to address the needs of service providers of all sizes that are looking to offer fiber based broadband access services but have small and/or space constrained serving locations.” “As part of ADTRAN’s complete Total Access family of products, the Total Access 1600 is optimized to meet deployment needs and keep costs to a minimum – a valuable asset in today’s market as customers look to maximize service offerings and minimize capital expense,” noted Brown.
