ADTRAN Total Access 5000 MSAP Enables Network Migration

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor

ADTRAN, a provider of next-generation networking solutions, announced that Consolidated Telephone, a Nebraskan provider of integrated communications services, has selected ADTRAN's (News - Alert) Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access and Aggregation Platform or “MSAP” for its network migration.

ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 allowed the company to efficiently migrate from their legacy networks to immediately offer new, revenue-generating services to their customer base, according to Jason Axthelm, CTO of Consolidated Telephone.

Consolidated Telephone was attracted to ADTRAN by the flexibility and scalability of their Total Access 5000 platform. The all-Ethernet based Total Access 5000 gives them the ability to offer both fiber and copper services from a single platform along with integrated voice support for legacy and converged services.

The solution also enables carriers to aggregate T1 connections from traditional Digital Loop Carriers or “DLCs” using pseudo wire technology providing the quickest conversion path to the Ethernet core, enabling them to deliver enhanced access services, along with the use of an efficient Ethernet transport.

These benefits, when combined with the provisioning tools included in the Total Access management system, result in increased revenues, lower operational cost and expedited ROI for the service provider.

Total Access 5000 MSAP addresses the key challenges involved in modernizing existing networks by easily accommodating 10 Gbps transport rings, supporting Fiber-to-the-Home or “FTTH” access, migrating existing ATM connections to Ethernet transport, and doing all of this under a single management system--the Total Access EMS, company officials said.

Axthelm added, “Going forward, the Total Access 5000 will enable us to offer a variety of next-generation services, enhance our broadband portfolio and protect our investments for years to come.”

Steven Locke, vice president of sales, service providers, ADTRAN, said, “The Total Access 5000 is an ideal solution for service providers such as Consolidated which seek a flexible, cost-effective solution to protect their existing assets, make the transition to Ethernet and deliver a wide array of next-generation services.”

Earlier in August ADTRAN announced that NTELOS Telephone selected the Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access and Aggregation Platform and Total Access 300 Series ONTs to provide both FTTH-based and broadband DLC services, TMCnet reported
