ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced Otelco Mid-Missouri, a division of Otelco Inc., is leveraging its existing Total Access 5000 network infrastructure with the addition of ADTRAN’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) solution to enable high bandwidth transport capabilities. Otelco turned to ADTRAN to deliver a solution that would provide the scalability needed to support mobile backhaul applications for 3G and 4G mobile access services without the need for overlay network builds on top of their existing voice and data services. This scalable service separation enables Otelco to provide a dedicated Ethernet backbone for Tier 1 wireless carriers while meeting the strict mobile backhaul service level agreements (SLAs) these carriers require.
ADTRAN’s ONE solution is enabling Otelco to address both the growing mobile backhaul and residential broadband markets from a single solution without sacrificing quality of service across either set of applications. ONE and ADTRAN’s Advanced Operational Environment (AOE) with ServiceMonitor allow Otelco to utilize the web-based SLA monitoring tool and cell-optimized wavelength service capabilities to ensure appropriate separation and provision of each type of traffic as needed. As a result, Otelco can capitalize on new service market opportunities while maximizing their network assets all from a single architecture platform. Otelco is also able to respond faster to customer requests with ONE’s simplified, agile photonic capabilities providing cost-effective network scalability.
“Mobile backhaul represents a huge market opportunity for us moving forward, but we needed to be sure that the quality of service would not be negatively impacted for our existing customers,” said Terry Schupp, network manager for Otelco Mid-Missouri. “With the ONE solution, we can not only deliver service isolation for each individual mobile network operator that may share a single cell site, but can do so in conjunction with our existing broadband services and know that the service level will remain high.”
“ADTRAN knows that service providers are constantly faced with the challenge of scaling the network to offer multiple, high-end services in order to grow their business opportunity,” said Mitch Fleming, regional vice president, service provider sales, ADTRAN. “With ADTRAN’s ONE solution, service providers like Otelco now have access to a single vendor and architecture for blending broadband, business and backhaul services.”
