Sycamore Telephone chooses ADTRAN for FTTH network

2013-05-10 21:32 Welcome to GrantWave |
Sycamore Telephone Co. (STC) has chosen to use optical transport platforms from ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) in its new fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network . The $4.1 million FTTH network, built with the help of a broadband stimulus grant, will serve 4200 rural residents, 450 local businesses, and 14 community anchor institutions in northern Ohio.

The independent telco has deployed the Total Access 5000 and Total Access 300 series in its Ethernet-based FTTH infrastructure, ADTRAN says. The new fiber-optic network will support not only the provision of such broadband services as IPTV, voice over IP (VoIP), and Internet access, but potentially attract new jobs, health care, and educational opportunities to the area.

“Broadband technology is the key economic enabler of our society today and it is critical that the rural communities that we service are a part of that modern infrastructure,” said Rick Ekleberry, broadband operations manager at Sycamore Telephone. “ADTRAN’s FTTH portfolio has enabled us to deploy the most cost-optimized, highest-density solution available and allows us to provide a state-of-the-art converged voice, video, and data infrastructure. We have not only maximized our investment and future revenue opportunities, but have also provided our residents with the best of both worlds – advanced communications services in the rural lifestyle that is so important to them.”

“ADTRAN is committed to working with our customers to deliver new, innovative FTTH solutions that allow service providers, like Sycamore Telephone, to quickly launch next generation services and transform their networks,” said Mitch Fleming, vice president of sales for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “Sycamore Telephone has crafted an advantage for themselves in the local market that not only provides their subscribers with the most modern technologies and services available, but also allows them to remain competitive with the large cable MSOs vying for the same business. It’s a win-win all around.”
