ADTRAN (News - Alert) , Inc., a global provider of networking and communications equipment, has claimed that CT Communications has been able to increase the throughput of its high-speed broadband services by more than 30 times by leveraging the company’s Total Access broadband platform.
Thanks to the ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000, CT Communications (News - Alert), a full-service telecommunications provider serving Champaign County and parts of surrounding counties in western Ohio, has been able to deliver a full range of next-generation services, like IPTV (News - Alert) with full SD, HD and DVR capabilities, over both copper and fiber architectures for residential and business customers in western Ohio.
Officials with ADTRAN said that the ADTRAN Total Access 5000/5006 MSAP is a carrier class multi-service access and aggregation platform that bridges the gap between the existing and the next generation networks. With a pure Ethernet core, the Total Access 5000 supports both legacy and emerging service interfaces over both copper and fiber, easily scaling to support even the most bandwidth intensive applications.
According to company officials, with Total Access 5000, bandwidth service speeds have significantly increased with some customers having the ability to experience download speeds up to 50Mbps using the latest generation of copper technology, VDSL2.
Company officials said that Total Access 5000 also offers CT Communications a high-capacity optical Ethernet access network that easily scales to handle the most bandwidth intensive services, enabling CT Communications to support compelling customer applications requiring 1Gbps upload and download speeds.
“Our previous service speeds put us at a disadvantage in the marketplace, but now we are able to deliver competitive products and services to our customers by utilizing reliable, next-generation technology,” said Tim Bolander, chief technology officer at CT Communications, in a statement.
Bolander said that ADTRAN’s Total Access broadband platform has allowed the company to provide high speed Internet and high definition video to meet the customers’ demands, while also providing the company the flexibility to expand product and service offers in the future.
“Triple-play customers have a choice between service providers that offer an array of high-speed broadband services, so it is critical for service providers to deploy the most advanced technologies possible to stay competitive,” said Mitch Fleming, vice president of sales for carrier networks division, ADTRAN.
