This innovative Ethernet over Copper (EoCu) solution enables service providers to extend packet-based business-class services beyond the reach of their fiber networks by leveraging the existing investment of copper-based TDM business services assets. Due to budget restrictions and time to market requirements, deploying fiber to address nascent or disperse service demand is not feasible. This leaves a large percentage of businesses to rely on copper business access.
The end to end EoCu solution encompasses the latest MEF certified e.SHDSL EFM network termination units (NTU). This suite of low profile EoCu NTU solutions includes the ADTRAN NetVanta 838, 834, and NetVanta 832 which bond up to 8, 4 and 2 pairs of copper loops respectively for up to 45Mbps of Carrier Ethernet service per customer node.
Also available are extreme hardened units for out use. NetVanta 838 Enhanced Protection (EP) and NetVanta 838 Outside Plant (OSP) provide for cabinet and OSP deployment respectively.
