Mobilizing the power of SDN
5G is significantly improving wireless connectivity, boosting speeds and reducing end-to-end latency for real-time applications such as mixed reality and autonomous vehicles. But key to the widespread success of 5G is the extension of SDN across the access network and into the mobile core through software-defined access (SD-access). Our next-generation PON technology will play an important role here, enabling service providers to develop converged backhaul, fronthaul and crosshaul networks that can support high bandwidth, low-latency applications.
Building simple, sustainable networks that scale
With automated activation and network provisioning, services can be deployed across multiple access technologies and multiple supplier platforms simultaneously.
Streamlined network operations
Sustainability and service velocity
Lower integration costs
SD-access with Adtran
Fiber access network architectures have rapidly evolved to encompass design principles proven in the data center. This delivers similar efficiency gains in network buildouts and service delivery, and boosts investor value. At Adtran, we provide one of the market’s most open, multi-vendor-aligned portfolios. Our SD-access solution flexibly combines access technologies, enabling operators to cost-effectively support mobile, enterprise and residential use cases with a single, universal platform. Our open innovation also creates diversity in supply chains and accelerates more sustainable technologies.
