ADTRAN, NRTC to Equip United Cooperative Services with Next-Generation 10G

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a provider of next-generation innovative fiber and fiber extension broadband access solutions, has announced that, through its Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program, it is empowering United Cooperative Services (UCS) to deliver multi-gigabit services to the electric cooperative´s membership in 14 counties across North Texas, the company said.

Represented by the National Rural Telecommunications Council (NRTC), UCS is a provider of high-performance broadband to previously underserved rural communities. UCS selected ADTRAN´s 10G fiber access portfolio to build and manage a flexible and highly scalable network and ADTRAN´s Mosaic Device Manager to better manage end-to-end performance. This deployment supports the bandwidth-intensive applications its members will rely on to lead fully connected lives in a global Gigabit Economy.

For over 80 years, UCS has focused on delivering reliable and affordable power to more than 62,000 residential and business customers, but high-quality and capacity-rich broadband had not previously been available to most of its region.

ADTRAN solutions optimize existing technology infrastructures and create new, multi-gigabit platforms that leverage cloud economics, data analytics, machine learning and open ecosystems–the future of global networking.
