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.”

    A vital part of increasing the number of women in comms is transforming the ways companies can support and empower women. While progressive company policies that support both men and women in achieving work-life balance are a step in the right direction, creating a company culture that supports those policies can at times be more challenging.

    During this show, we'll talk to Lynn Comp, Senior Director of Industry and Sales Enabling (ISE) in the Network Platforms Group at Intel, about why those challenges exist and how companies can overcome them. She'll provide insight into how Intel has worked to create a culture that supports work-life balance, and provide steps and guidance for other companies wishing to do the same. We will also leave plenty of time to get your questions answered live on the air.
