ADTRAN launches Vocus business service platform

ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN) has been deployed by Vocus Communications for its next generation access technologies including ADTRAN´s XGS-PON and Mosaic architecture, the company said.

The deployment, which is in its final stages of preparedness, will further enable high utilization of Vocus´ extensive metro fiber network whilst enabling 10Gbits/s symmetrical business grade capacity.

Vocus has built a world-class telecommunications infrastructure platform across Australia that maximizes network investment, streamlines operational costs and offers the flexible price points needed for supplying business and backhaul services as well as residential applications.

Vocus will be utilizing ADTRAN´s Multi Service Access Nodes, 10G Optical Line Termination (OLT) equipment and 10G Optical Network Termination (ONT) units to build out the 10G PON deployment. Additionally, Vocus will be using the ADTRAN Mosaic Cloud Platform as an open microservices architecture providing network management and SDN control for the 10Gbps services access network.
