New alliance provides unique forum for collaboration and integration

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has announced the establishment of the ADTRAN Mosaic Open Network Alliance (Mosaic Alliance), the company said.

ADTRAN Mosaic, the most open and complete SD-Access solution in the industry, serves as the foundation for this program. Following on the success of its Mosaic SD-Access platforms, ADTRAN is forming the Mosaic Alliance to foster the widespread development and industry adoption of SDN and NFV solutions based on open standards, while maximizing the utility that such open collaborations can deliver.

The Mosaic Alliance brings together market participants dedicated to delivering, demonstrating and testing open and proven SDN and NFV solutions. Through the program, ADTRAN is providing operators around the globe a single point of reference for best-of-breed SD-Access and NFV solutions. As a one-stop shop of uniquely vetted solutions, the Mosaic Alliance will save network operators the time and resources required to assess and substantiate vendors and offerings best suited for their open network demands, while reducing introduction risks posed to the operator´s business.

Mosaic Alliance members will have access to ADTRAN expertise and to one another for information exchange as well as mutual assistance for the development of new open SD-Access projects. Members will have the opportunity to meet, share insights and gain knowledge of the latest advancements impacting the industry.

ADTRAN continues to be a proponent of fully open source, multi-vendor networks and maintains affiliation with numerous open networks organizations and projects including NIA, ODL, ONF, ONOS, CORD and ON.LAB. The company is also an active member of many of the industry´s standards bodies, such as the Broadband Forum and CableLabs, and is helping to shape the future of communications through open technologies.

Through the Mosaic Alliance, operators can create their tailored multi-vendor SD-Access platforms, comfortable in the knowledge that they are backed by the same ADTRAN quality mark that has served the industry over the past three decades.

Initial members have already begun enrolling in the Mosaic Alliance, and ADTRAN is reviewing a large slate of additional prospective members. ADTRAN will be announcing partners to the alliance over the coming months and continuously going forward.
