First in North America, ADTRAN SmartOS Platform Leverages Super-Vectoring to Deliver Ultra-Broadband Wi-Fi Services

Sponsored by Businesswire

, (NASDAQ:ADTN), the leading provider of next-generation open
networking and subscriber experience solutions, today announced an
extension of its SmartOS-enabled portfolio of broadband access solutions
with the SmartRG
652ac (SR652ac)
residential and small business gateway. Operators
can now expedite the delivery of ultra-fast internet services—leveraging
recent investments in building multi-Gigabit access networks so that
customers can have the richest broadband experience independent of
location, device or infrastructure.

The new carrier-grade, SmartOS-enabled residential and small business
gateway provides the ability to deliver highly competitive broadband—up
to 700Mbps—without service or customer disruptions via bonded
super-vectoring (VDSL2 profile 35b) technology. This highly scalable
fiber broadband extension technology is ideal for the rapidly growing
MDU/MTU markets. Using the existing in-building wiring to each unit
helps network providers accelerate service deployment and save
construction costs associated with delivering new broadband services.
Further, service providers can run super-vectoring in parallel to other
xDSL technologies in their access network, adding additional operational

The SR652ac also provides advanced capabilities via its open software
platform (based on OpenWrt), including self-service portals,
self-healing Wi-Fi and subscriber analytics. When paired with the ADTRAN
48-port sealed broadband micronode, operators now have a
highly scalable solution to create efficient and cost-effective
whole-home and whole-business Wi-Fi environments without the time and
expense of pulling new facilities to each unit.

In addition, this gigabit-capable wireless gateway allows for an easy
migration to any FTTH deployment model in the future, eliminating
disruptive customer device swaps and application re-integration and
testing. Another benefit of the SmartOS OpenWrt-based network operating
system is that it’s silicon-independent and enables an elegant
transition to SDN/NFV architectures. ADTRAN is recognized as a leader in
advancing open, disaggregated network architectures through its
contributions to the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and prpl
Foundation ecosystems.

“The design philosophy with SmartOS is to give service providers a
single, open source-based, secure software framework so that providers
gain consistency and commonality to reduce testing or qualification
cycles and increase speed to market for new and innovative services,”
ADTRAN’s Senior Vice President of Subscriber Solutions & Experience,
Jeff McInnis, said. “We can significantly reduce the cost and resources
required to introduce new solutions into a network and help our
customers bring better services to their subscribers through our
feature-rich, SmartOS platform—enhancing the experience for everyone.”
