Open networking solutions provider ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADTN), through its Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program, is helping to lay the foundation to build and connect Smart Cities and micro-communities across the country, including the recently announced Walsh community in Fort Worth, Texas, the company said.

Developed by Republic Property Group, the 7,200-acre Texas neighborhood will feature the fastest residential fiber network in the country. Frog, a next-generation technology and Internet provider, has designed the infrastructure and connectivity for homes and businesses at Walsh, and will leverage ADTRAN´s Gigabit broadband platform to help bring 10Gig Internet speeds to Fort Worth.

Among the first to benefit from 10Gig connectivity at Walsh will be students attending a new Aledo ISD elementary school. The school, set to open for the 2017-2018 school year, will be the first of as many as eight future elementary schools located in Walsh neighborhoods. The schools will be in an award-winning school district that intends to support a science, technology, engineering, math and the arts (STEAM) curriculum.
