Total Access 1100 - FTTN Broadband Access Systems
Wireline carriers are faced with the difficult challenge of transforming their existing networks to provide next-generation services, enabling not only voice and simple broadband connections to the Internet, but newer services like IPTV. The dynamics of these new services are constantly evolving, making it difficult to identify the right network architecture. Although fiber access technologies may provide the ultimate solution for addressing consumer access bandwidth, especially in greenfield deployments, the fact remains that there is a massive embedded base of copper access infrastructure.
Technological advances, including VDSL2 and bonded ADSL2+, are enabling ultra-broadband speeds over copper, provided that loop lengths are reduced. ADTRAN’s innovative Fiber to the Node (FTTN) broadband access systems dramatically lower the total cost of deployment in a FTTN architecture.
