HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN - News), a leading provider of network access equipment, today announced the NetVanta® 4000 Series of access routers, additional WAN interface modules, and the latest version of the ADTRAN Operating System (OS) v7.1. These additions make NetVanta routing solutions even more attractive as a cost-effective alternative for small and medium-size networks.

The NetVanta 4305, the first member of the NetVanta 4000 series, is housed in a modular, compact 1U chassis that can accommodate up to a maximum total bandwidth capacity of eight T1s. The NetVanta 4305 has two 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN ports for LAN segmentation or DMZ applications. Users can also add VPN capability, allowing the device to provide up to 1,000 IPSec tunnels using DES, 3DES or AES encryption. The NetVanta 4305 also incorporates Multilink PPP, which provides the ability to aggregate T1s for high bandwidth applications. This capability also makes this platform attractive for carrier applications such as multi-T1 data services.

"As the need for cost-effective small and medium business applications continues to grow, so does the requirement for additional bandwidth to support higher-speed applications," said Tim Saunders, vice president of product management, ADTRAN Enterprise Networks Division. "The NetVanta 4000 Series meets this need, by allowing customers to add bandwidth as their requirements grow, without adding costly hardware. This not only saves money up-front, but also enables a faster ROI and extends the life of the product, providing a much lower total cost of ownership."
