HUNTSVILLE, Ala.-- ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) today announced the release of its NetVanta 1235P Ethernet Switch with ActivReach—the latest addition to its ActivReach Switch Portfolio. The NetVanta 1235P with ActivReach is purpose-built to speed VoIP deployments, delivering 10/100 Mbps voice, data and PoE over legacy voice-grade wiring.

The new solution reduces disruption, cost and network downtime. As a result, businesses, hosted service providers and value-added resellers can quickly and easily provide enhanced VoIP applications like unified communications and Wi-Fi.

Many businesses, regardless of their networking environment, are looking to deploy bandwidth-rich, business-class IP services, such as high-definition voice and video communications, to enable a more collaborative and productive environment. However, running new Ethernet cabling is a cost barrier and construction nightmare, especially in aged or historic buildings. ADTRAN’s ActivReach technology eliminates these concerns by utilizing existing cabling—CAT5, CAT3 or legacy copper—for immediate, cost-effective VoIP deployments.

In addition, ActivReach extends Ethernet reach up to 488 meters (1600 ft.), allowing networks requiring long cable runs to deploy a single switch to serve a wider service area. When compared to traditional technology that only reaches 100 meters and requires expensive repeaters to extend reach, ActivReach provides significant savings in infrastructure costs and network management resources.

ADTRAN’s expanded portfolio of ActivReach switches provides customers increased flexibility to deploy the right switch for their unique network needs—whether they need single application support or support for a broad range of applications. The ActivReach portfolio includes the NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch for multiple applications, including VoIP, wireless and Gigabit to the Desktop.

The newest addition to the ActivReach portfolio—the NetVanta 1235P—is specifically designed for voice applications. Specific features and benefits of the NetVanta 1235P with ActivReach include:

  • 28 Ethernet ports with support for Layer 2/3-lite switching
  • 24 copper ports supporting both standard 10/100 and ActivReach Ethernet technology
  • Four Gigabit SFP uplink ports - two Standard SFP ports capable of 1 Gbps operation and two enhanced SFP ports capable of up to 2.5 Gbps operation
  • VoIP-ready with support for LLDP/LLDP-MED and voice VLANS
  • Support for IEEE 802.3af PoE, Legacy PoE and PoE over ActivReach

    “ADTRAN continues to expand its ActivReach Ethernet Switch portfolio in order to meet the needs of businesses looking for an affordable path to high-bandwidth voice and data services. The NetVanta 1235P is purpose-built to enable advanced VoIP services while utilizing existing infrastructure for ultimate simplicity in deploying a next-generation network,” said Todd Lattanzi, director of product management for ADTRAN. “This new solution in the ActivReach switch family demonstrates our commitment and investment in this innovative technology. The NetVanta 1235P is one more way ADTRAN is enabling its customers to break down the barriers to improving their voice and data networks.”

    Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

    During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

    She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
