ONE recognized with TMC`s Mobility Tech Zone Visionary Award for advancing
wireless broadband services delivery
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(Business Wire)--
ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking
solutions, today announced that TMC and Crossfire Media have named ADTRAN`s
Optical Networking Edge (ONE) solution a recipient of the 2012 Mobility Tech
Zone LTE Visionary Award. Honored for developing a long term evolution backhaul
solution geared towards bridging the gap between mobile broadband wireless and
wireline, ADTRAN`s ONE allows operators to modernize their network for new LTE
services and avoid the high costs and network complexity associated with
traditional deployments. 

ONE leverages packet optical networking innovation to address the capacity
bottlenecks created by the often combined aggregation of high-bandwidth services
from homes, businesses and cell sites. With the ability to bridge the gap
between network access and transport, ONE allows service providers to leverage
their existing network assets by extending the bandwidth efficiencies of the
core to the optical edge, metro and middle-mile. By combining wavelength,
Ethernet and OTN switching separation with a web-based service level agreement
(SLA) monitoring tool, each type of traffic can be guaranteed and provisioned
over a common network infrastructure as needed with ONE. Additionally, the
scalable, compact Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (mini-ROADM)
system-on-a-blade, provides service providers with more operational flexibility
that is essential for cost effectively responding to shifts in traffic and
capacity demands throughout their networks. 

"ADTRAN has optimized its packet optical technology in order to redefine service
delivery and aggregation; essentially blurring the boundaries between access and
transport," said Mano Nachum, packet optical solutions product line manager for
ADTRAN`s Carrier Networks Division. "ADTRAN`s innovation is focused on further
right-sizing core packet optical technology and uniquely differentiating the
products to address current and future services, while speeding up
time-to-revenue, eliminating complexity, simplifying operations and reducing
overall costs." 

"It is a pleasure to recognize ADTRAN with this award. Their contribution toward
the future of mobile broadband is noteworthy," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I
look forward to more innovation from ADTRAN in the future."
