This agreement accentuates the strength of ADTRAN’s fiber broadband portfolio and its ability and usefulness in providing efficient, fast and reliable connectivity across cities, towns and rural areas.

The company’s multi-gigabyte technology paves the way for high-speed, cost-efficient network connectivity. Truespeed is looking to leverage ADTRAN’s XGS-PON technology that allows the service provider to boost speed up to 900 Mbp/s to households and up to 10Gbp/s to organizations. It significantly reduces the requirement for additional equipment installation, allowing rapid deployment of the technology and connecting new users faster.

Integration of XGS-PON greatly enhances the efficiency and sustainability of fiber broadband infrastructure.

The company has enabled service providers to leverage the ADTRAN Mosaic Software-Defined Access architecture that combines modern Web-scale technologies with open-source platforms to facilitate rapid innovation in multi-technology, multi-vendor environments. The Mosaic cloud platform and Mosaic OS, combined with programmable network elements, provide operators with a highly agile, open-services architecture.
