HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN - News), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative Corp., Tennessee’s largest telephone cooperative, has selected ADTRAN’s extensive broadband portfolio and Advanced Operational Environment (AOE) services management solution for use throughout its network. ADTRAN solutions will be used to deliver residential and business services including triple-play – voice, data and video – using IPTV architecture via Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH). This Broadband Stimulus award initiative will reach over 12,000 business and residential customers. In addition, the service provider is also expanding the use of the ADTRAN solutions for high-bandwidth mobile backhaul applications.

The flexibility of ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 and its ability to configure and provision multiple services from a single platform was cited as a key reason for the selection by Twin Lakes. In addition, with the use of the Total Access 5000, Twin Lakes can easily deploy mobile backhaul services using a variety of gigabit fiber connections.

Additional consideration in the selection of the ADTRAN product line includes the features found in the ServiceCheck application of ADTRAN’s AOE. This application provides comprehensive diagnostics up through the service layer, and enables Twin Lakes to easily determine the integrity of the service. The robust features of the product set are complemented by ADTRAN’s outstanding customer service and support.

“ADTRAN’s FTTH solution combined with the service management features of AOE allowed us to streamline our operations and immediately offer cutting-edge, revenue-generating services to our customers,” said Jonathan West, General Manager/CEO, Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative. “ADTRAN has enabled us to simplify our network and minimize capital expenditures, allowing us to reach more customers with next-generation services.”
