Increased capacity of NetVanta 4430 and NetVanta 3430 provide scalability and
flexibility to address medium and large enterprises
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(Business Wire)--
ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking
solutions, today announced enhancements to its popular NetVanta series. The
enterprise Session Border Control (eSBC) Feature Pack has been added to its
NetVanta® 4430 series, and the session capabilities of the NetVanta 3430 have
been doubled. This application was designed specifically to address the need of
service providers to monitor and manage their growing demand for SIP Trunking
services. Because each NetVanta platform provides a single device that can
support both data routing and SIP Trunking Services, either is a perfect
solution for medium and large enterprises. 

"SIP Trunking is a rapidly growing service type for Charter, and having the
ability to scale our offering quickly and easily is an advantage," said Pete
Hicks, senior director, product management, Charter Business. "ADTRAN`s eSBCs
provide an easy-to-manage demarcation device that handles the normalization,
security and monitoring of our rapidly growing SIP Trunking service offering." 

The NetVanta 4430 with eSBC Feature Pack can support up to 300 sessions while
the NetVanta 3430 can now support up to 100 sessions. The expansion of the
product`s eSBC capabilities was in direct response to carrier demand for an
efficient product set that could be used to manage, maintain and grow SIP
Trunking services across a network footprint. This new capability, combined with
the ability to field upgrade ADTRAN`s market leading IP Business Gateways with
eSBC functionality, allows ADTRAN`s existing carrier customers to quickly tap
into the rapidly growing SIP Trunking market. 

"The ability to remotely software upgrade our industry leading installed base of
IPBG`s and access routers provides tremendous value to our service provider
customers. It delivers a compelling and cost-effective transition path to newer
services without the need to replace equipment already installed in the
network," said Chris Thompson, ADTRAN`s director of product management, Cloud
Connectivity Solutions. "Our customers rely on us for technology to drive
network efficiency and to open up new paths for service and revenue growth. The
expansion of eSBC capability, in terms of capacity and across the product line,
is a prime example of our ability and commitment to help providers achieve these
goals."
