Tunisie Telecom deploys ADTRAN remote-powered DSLAMs

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has marked the latest deployment for its sealed outside plant (OSP) DSLAM solutions in the North African market, the company said.

Incumbent operator Tunisie Telecom (TT) is leveraging ADTRAN´s unique Discrete Multi-Tone (DMT) capabilities to deliver next-generation copper-based broadband services to locations where laying fiber is cost-prohibitive and/or electrical power sources are unreliable or unavailable.

The ADTRAN 1148VX OSP DSLAM enables operators, like TT, to offer subscribers in all areas, including difficult to reach regions, higher broadband speeds. In the conducted trials, broadband rates in excess of 90Mb/s on loops of several hundred meters were reliably and repeatedly demonstrated.

ADTRAN OSP DSLAMs are widely deployed by operators around the world, with millions of ultrafast broadband ports in this low-profile, zero maintenance form factor shipped to date for a range of applications and harsh environmental requirements. ADTRAN has the industry´s most comprehensive portfolio of OSP DSLAMs with unique solutions such as DMT copper backhaul, 48P-384P System Level Vectoring, and universal power supplies that support DC/AC/Span Power sources.

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has marked another milestone in its EMEA Enabling Communities Connecting Lives program with the latest deployment for its sealed outside plant (OSP) DSLAM solutions in the North African market, the company said.

Incumbent operator Tunisie Telecom (TT) is leveraging ADTRAN´s solutions to deliver next-generation copper-based broadband services to locations where laying fiber is cost-prohibitive and/or electrical power sources are unreliable or unavailable.

The ADTRAN 1148VX OSP DSLAM enables operators, like TT, to offer subscribers in all areas higher broadband speeds (more than 90Mb/s with distance of around 200m with remote power, more than 59Mb/s with 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz WiFi, and more than 20Mb/s for distance of about 2km) by deploying environmentally sealed, temperature-hardened micro-FTTX solutions that can avoid the delay penalties incurred waiting for the local electrical utility to provide power.

ADTRAN´s copper backhaul is a unique way for operators such as TT to cut cost and expedite deployment into hard-to-reach areas that may be far away from traditional MSAN sites, and too expensive or time-consuming to consider fiber deployment in the short term. Benefiting from investment protection due to the fiber ready status of all ADTRAN OSP DSLAMs, TT´s initiative ensures all of Tunisia can benefit from a path towards ultrafast broadband.
