HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Adtran Inc., a provider of next-generation network solutions, today announced two additions to its broadband access portfolio: system-level vectoring (SLV) for its sealed VDSL2 DSLAM portfolio and Crossover Enclosure, that bridges the gap between a sealed DSLAM pedestal and a traditional FTTN cabinet.

The Adtran Crossover enclosure is a rapidly deployable Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) solution that rivals the cost and simple installation of sealed DSLAM solutions but incorporates the unmatched service options available from the Total Access 5000 MSAP family. The solution is purpose-built for the simultaneous support of both FTTN and Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) access supporting a seamless migration path from 100Mbps VDSL2 Vectoring to full Gigabit FTTH services for future demand. This complete turnkey solution is benefiting from the availability of new Adtran Total Access® 5004 compact ultra broadband node and other Adtran Advanced Services Architecturesm components.

Wrapped around the smallest member of the Adtran MSAP family, the Adtran Crossover becomes the most compact member of the Adtran Total Access cabinet portfolio, measuring less than 40 inches in height, yet provides an ample 15 cubic feet in volume. The ultra-compact size allows for more “pedestal-like” mounting techniques such as an integrated stake down option that eliminates the need for a concrete pad and drastically reduces the costs and time required for FTTN and FTTH installation. No longer does installation require a large crew and a crane, as a two-person team can complete the process in a few hours. Adtran’s Crossover cabinet extends the service providers’ ability to deploy a mix of innovative residential and small business access services further into the outside plant as they enter new markets.

System-level Vectoring (SLV) is being demonstrated at Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam this week. This solution offers service providers the performance and scalability of traditional chassis-based SLV solutions, but with the economics and minimal footprint of Adtran’s industry-leading sealed DSLAM solutions. The solution is available today for service providers looking to capitalize on existing infrastructure while managing the transformation to an all-fiber network. Leveraging both board-level and system-level VDSL2 vectoring, service providers can maximize their network infrastructure to support hundreds of subscribers, across larger neighborhoods, with 100+Mbps VoIP and IPTV residential services and 800Mbps business Ethernet services.
