ADTRAN builds competitive broadband network for EWE TEL

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), the provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has announced EWE TEL, one of the largest regional providers of telecommunications services in Germany, has selected ADTRAN, and begun the rollout, of turnkey network implementation services, including equipment swap, project management and data migration services, the company said.

EWE TEL is making significant investments in its broadband network to become even more competitive in its region and provide more advanced services to residential and business customers. While ADTRAN serves as the trusted partner focused on the network build, EWE TEL can focus its resources on the development of new services, strategy and network management.

ADTRAN´s network implementation services are transformative for operators because ADTRAN provides its unique intellectual property focused on automating processes and critical implementations, as well as managing and tracking inventory. These services have been utilized by operators across the globe, including in the EMEA, North America and LATAM regions.

The operators that have deployed ADTRAN´s turnkey network implementation services are quickly realizing a significant reduction in operation and automation costs while transforming their network with the seamless integration of the latest state-of-the-art broadband capacity and service delivery solutions.

EWE TEL offers high-speed Internet, fixed line and mobile communications, online TV and high-end business solutions with focus on Northwest Germany. As the network implementation partner for EWE TEL, ADTRAN is maximizing existing network assets and expanding bandwidth potential so that EWE TEL can more easily meet growing broadband demand in the region. The new EWE TEL network will also allow EWE TEL to remain a operator in the highly dense last mile areas and become more competitive in new regions that have traditionally been underserved by broadband service providers.
