SYDNEY -- ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), the leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, today announced its gigabit-capable 2nd generation Distribution Point Units (DPUs) will be installed underground throughout Australia as NBN Co begins the next phase of future-proofing the country’s national broadband access network (nbn).

ADTRAN has shipped hundreds of thousands of the most advanced generation of ports for this project. is an excellent fibre service extension technology because it uses existing wired infrastructure to bring higher broadband speeds to customers by linking large capacity fibre networks to homes and businesses.

The first DPUs are being installed in the Sydney suburb of Rockdale, where the newest phase of the wholesale nbn is being built out by 2020. This is the first network in the world to deliver high speeds of broadband via in-ground DPUs, according to NBN Chief Network Engineering Officer Peter Ryan.

ADTRAN was among the first to deliver solutions that conform with Amendment 3 of the ITU-T standard, which doubles the usable spectrum from 106 MHz to 212 MHz and reduces the power consumption to enable convenient and cost effective reverse power feeding.
