HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN(R), Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN), a leading supplier of networking equipment, today announced a new performance-enhanced business-class Multiservice Access Router. The NetVanta 1335 is a unique platform that integrates a modular IP access router, 802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Point (WAP), 24-port Layer 2/3 Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch, firewall, VPN appliance, and DSU/CSU, all in a single, compact chassis. The NetVanta 1335 also features RapidRoute(TM) technology, delivering the enhanced performance necessary for IP telephony, corporate connectivity and Internet access, with advanced services like Quality of Service (QoS), Network Address Translation (NAT) and firewall enabled.

"The Tolly Group's initial spot check of the NetVanta 1335 shows that the integrated platform packs diverse functionality into a single box, including routing, Layer 2/3 switching, VPN and firewall security and wireless access point capability - all of the functions that are important to SMB and enterprise branch office users," said Kevin Tolly, president/CEO/founder of The Tolly Group.

The NetVanta 1335 with Wi-Fi provides 802.11a/b/g dual radio support at speeds up to 54Mbps. It offers advanced business-class features including multiple SSIDs, the ability to disable SSID broadcasts, 802.1x for user authentication, and WPA2 support. It also employs the concept of Virtual Access Points (VAPs), the equivalent of wireless VLANs, that allow customers to securely segment their wireless network just as they would their wired network.

"As the need for instantaneous information continues to grow, so does the importance of wireless connectivity," said Tim Saunders, vice president, product management, ADTRAN Enterprise Networks Division. "By adding Wi-Fi to our integrated platforms we are increasing the number of applications this product will serve in the SMB space. We continue to provide SMB customers with an all-in-one business solution that meets their needs in terms of both functionality and price point."
