HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN - News), the market-leader for packet/IP and TDM-based Integrated Access Devices (IADs), today announced a new family of Total Access IADs, the Total Access® 900 Series. These customer premises-based products allow Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILECs) and Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) to implement a cost-effective IP network architecture for Voice over IP (VoIP) deployment, while supporting customers' legacy equipment.

"Integrated IP voice and data transport is becoming commonplace. Yet, a recent In-Stat business survey found over 40% of SMEs and 29% of small businesses favor hybrid TDM/IP voice solutions. TDM voice applications are not going away anytime soon," said Keith Nissan, Sr. Analyst, In-Stat. "ADTRAN's Total Access 900 Series products are perfect for this changing environment, allowing customers to take advantage of the benefits of VoIP, while transitioning from TDM to IP at their own rate."

Using Total Access 900 Series products, carriers can migrate to VoIP architecture today, while providing new, competitive, revenue-producing services. These products are ideal for hosted PBX or IP Centrex applications, and can be used as a SIP gateway to overlay additional services to customers. Features such as dynamic bandwidth allocation and G.711 and G.729a voice compression technology allow carriers to save on backhaul costs. This provides the opportunity for enterprise customers to take advantage of increased features and cost savings as a result of VoIP implementation, while providing the option to maintain existing legacy infrastructure, implement a gradual IP migration, or select a complete overhaul of their network.

"With the adoption of VoIP applications, these products are the next logical extension of our market-leading Total Access Series of Integrated Access Devices," said Tim Saunders, vice president of product management, ADTRAN Enterprise Networks Division. "Our customers have requested a product line that combines the best in functionality and reliability while remaining cost-effective. These carrier-class devices make migrating to next generation services, such as VoIP, a cost-effective proposition for both the carrier and its customers."
