Offers 10 gigabit ethernet support and single platform for fiber and copper delivery
Adtran has unveiled a range of offerings for Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) targeted at delivering advanced video services. These are optimised for Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) and Fiber to the Node (FTTN) architectures.
The company said that the Total Access 5000, with both FTTP and FTTN architectures, allows service providers to use a single platform for both fiber and copper delivery.
According to Adtran, the Total Access 5000 portfolio includes integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet Rings via the ITU-T G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) standard. This provides carriers with a hi-capacity ethernet ring architecture. In addition to the ERPS capability, the ability to configure multiple 10G network interfaces provides carriers with unprecedented bandwidth delivery in support of FTTP and FTTN architectures.
The new portfolio also includes, HomePNA (HPNA) Enabled Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) Optical Network Terminals (ONT) which eliminates the costs associated with new in-home wiring for high-bandwidth services and Radio Frequency (RF) enabled GPON ONTs that allows carriers to leverage their existing RF video headend.
In addition, the Total Access 5000 portfolio additions include, Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) ONT, offers an integrated 1:4 fiber splitter, enhanced cable management, a common powering system and a flexible shelf system; and VDSL2 FTTN access modules.
