ADTRAN`s Total Access 5000 platform enables increased bandwidth for
next-generation data and video services for residential customers
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(Business Wire)--
ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking
solutions, announced today that Glandorf Telephone Company will be using
ADTRAN`s Total Access 5000 broadband platform to enable high-speed broadband and
video service to households in Northwest Ohio. Glandorf is utilizing the
flexibility of the Total Access 5000 to deliver both Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH)
and Ultra Broadband services to both residential and business customers.
Glandorf is reaching the unreachable with premium services by capitalizing on
their extensive existing copper network to double the bandwidth service speed
over bonded copper for rural residents who cannot be serviced by the fiber
network. In addition, Glandorf is positioned to offer business class services
from the same platform, increasing both revenue opportunities and customer base.


ADTRAN`s Total Access 5000 helps service providers like Glandorf Telephone
Company reinvent their access networks by delivering broadband over both copper
and fiber architectures. This enables service providers with the capacity and
scalability needed to meet the growing demand for super-premium internet and HD
video services while providing a seamless migration path for existing legacy
services. ADTRAN`s broadband platform provides virtually unlimited network
bandwidth with an ultra-low cost of ownership, allowing Glandorf to expand its
addressable market and reach residents who may not have had easy access to these
types of services previously. 

"Our previous solution limited our ability to offer our customers the services
they were looking for. We knew we needed to find a solution that would increase
speed and serve more subscribers," said Jason Kleman, IT manager with Glandorf
Telephone Company. "Since implementing ADTRAN`s broadband platform, we are able
to provide more reliable and efficient service to our customers, increasing
customer satisfaction." 

"Our goal at ADTRAN is to help service providers deploy a solution that allows
them to launch and stay ahead by offering the latest next-generation services,
creating opportunities to increase market share and revenue," said Mitch
Fleming, regional vice president, sales, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division.
"ADTRAN`s products provide the flexibility and simplicity that service
providers, like Glandorf Telephone, need to not only grow their network
bandwidth over time, but also diversify their service offering to meet both
residential and business customers` demand."
