Gross margin as an indicator of softwarization progress ADTRAN's gross margins peaked at 59.7% in 2008 which is good but still below true software companies such as ORCL (80%) or ADBE (86%). However, ADTN's margins have fallen every year since 2008 to a low of 44.5% in 2015. They improved to 46.0% in 2016 but this year they look to be slipping again to around 45%. That is some way behind CSCO's 64% which is on a similar path of softwarization.
