SD-Access innovation enables global operators to better monetize fiber investment strategy

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), the provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has expanded its market-leading Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) portfolio with 2nd generation Gfast products, allowing for the transparent extension of FTTH service capabilities, the company said.

Delivering the industry´s first commercially available gigabit-capable Gfast solution shatters the market´s economic barriers to delivering the immersive applications and bandwidth-driven services customers need to fully participate in a global hyper-connected marketplace.

Deployments of ADTRAN Gfast solutions are already underway in Tier 1 carrier networks in Asia, Australia, North America and Europe as network operators look to complement Fiber-to-the-Home deployments to deliver Gigabit services network wide. Together with further regional engagements with either active or pending deployments, these contribute to ADTRAN´s leadership in the rapidly growing SD-Access market.

ADTRAN, Inc. is the global provider of networking and communications equipment. ADTRAN´s products enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures. ADTRAN solutions are currently in use by service providers, private enterprises, government organizations and millions of individual users worldwide.
