HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, the leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has expanded its market-leading Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) portfolio with 2nd generation Gfast products, allowing for the transparent extension of FTTH service capabilities. Delivering the industryís first commercially available gigabit-capable Gfast solution shatters the marketís economic barriers to delivering the immersive applications and bandwidth-driven services customers need to fully participate in a global hyper-connected marketplace.

Deployments of ADTRAN Gfast solutions are already underway in Tier 1 carrier networks in Asia, Australia, North America and Europe as network operators look to complement Fiber-to-the-Home deployments to deliver Gigabit services network wide. Together with further regional engagements with either active or pending deployments, these contribute to ADTRANís leadership in the rapidly growing SD-Access market.

ADTRAN is the first to deliver Gfast solutions that conform with Amendment 3 of the ITU-T G.fast standard, which doubles the usable spectrum from previously 106 Mhz to 212 MHz. With Amendment 3, Gfast is now capable of providing an aggregated bandwidth of 2 Gbps, delivering fiber-like speeds for Multi-Dwelling Units (MDUs) and other applications which require leveraging the existing phone or cable television wiring infrastructure. The increased capacity also helps operators with additional deployment flexibility, as for the first time Gfast-based services can be delivered to locations where these need to coexist with existing VDSL2 services while still maintaining the ability to deliver symmetric Gigabit speeds.
