Broadband Access Solutions
Solutions for Service Provider
Service providers are faced with optimizing their existing network infrastructure to support advanced services, enabling not only voice and simple broad- band connections to the Internet, but newer services such as IPTV and Ethernet. Historically, wireline services have been delivered across disparate networks, each with its own infrastructure and expense. However, the maturation of industry standards related to IP is enabling the convergence of these disparate networks across a unified network architecture. While enabling this convergence can be difficult, it is clear that broadband access service providers must drive toward increased subscriber revenues through the delivery of enhanced broadband access services while simultaneously driving operational cost out of the network. This evolution requires a platform that has the capacity and scalability for these advanced services while providing a seamless migration path for existing legacy services.

Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology advances the public communications network using traditional telephone services (POTS), high speed data services, and video services. A GPON network consists of an Optical Line Terminal (OLT) located at the CO and a set of Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) located at the customer's premises. Between them lies the Optical Distribution Network (ODN) consisting of fibers and passive splitters or couplers. In a PON, a single piece of fiber can be run from the serving exchange out to a subdivision or office park. Then, individual fiber strands can be run to each building. This allows one fiber cable to be shared by many customers, thereby dramatically lowering the overall costs of deployment for Fiber To The Premises (FTTP). ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 provides FTTP with a GPON 2.5 Gbps Optical Line Terminal (OLT) solution, including a full line of Total Access 300 Series GPON Optical Network Terminals (ONTs).
Active Ethernet from the Total Access 5000/5006
The Total Access 5000/5006 Multi-Service Access and Aggregation Platform supports a pure fiber to the premises (FTTP) application using either GPON and/or Active Ethernet solutions from central office, remote terminal and remote node locations. The Total Access 5000 also offers a complete solution for migrating the carrier’s network infrastructure to support the delivery of symmetrical Ethernet services. In order to meet advancing demands related to bandwidth, Active Ethernet is the preferred technology choice of many service providers around the world for FTTH applications. ADTRANs Active Ethernet solution allows service providers to fully support all business, residential, and mobile backhaul applications. As part of ADTRANs ONT portfolio, a complete line of Active Ethernet ONTs are available for your SBU, SFU, MDU and mobile backhaul needs. Since the Active Ethernet deployment method uses standard Ethernet frames, no transition protocol is required. This technology provides a consistent and common approach to providing triple play services using the public communications network for:
- Traditional telephone services (Plain Old Telephone Service [POTS])
- High speed data services
- Video services
GPON from the Total Access 5000/5006
The ADTRAN GPON solution utilizes GPON Encapsulation Mode (GEM) to carry Ethernet traffic exclusively. Data traffic is carried natively as Ethernet, which is a very efficient means of transporting high-bandwidth data connections. Voice traffic is carried as VoIP packets to the GR303 gateway in the Total Access 5000 to provide a gateway to the legacy TDM network, or as SIP to an external softswitch to support the next generation of voice services. Finally, TDM transport through a GPON is provided with Pseudowire Emulation (PWE3), which terminates on the PWE3 gateway in the Total Access 5000 and on an ONT. Video options with the Total Access 5000 GPON OLT include both IPTV and RF video. IPTV functions in the Total Access 5000 and the GPON OLT Access Module provide IGMP signaling and multicast replication functions. RF Video Overlay at 54-870 Mhz is supported on a GPON as a third wavelength at 1550 nm using outboard amplifiers and wavelength combiners.
High Density DSLAMs:
High Density DSLAM HDX Architecture
The High Density eXpansion (HDX) System integrates ADTRAN's industry leading loop technologies into a platform that can grow from a single DSLAM (320 ports) up to a configuration allowing 1,280 DSL ports from a single giga-bit Ethernet network feed.
Legacy Service Migration:
ADTRAN's Total Access 5000 system allows service providers to aggregate legacy PPP services onto their scalable and cost efficient Ethernet core.
TDM DS1 Service Delivery
Total Access 5000 System provides support for the migration of legacy PPP services onto an Ethernet core using the Total Access 5000 platform. This provides customers the continued flexibility of delivering access services over T1 leased lines but at a much lower operational cost. This lower operational cost comes from removing the need to transport access T1s all the way through the network. This is achieved by co-locating a Total Access 5000 within the remote central office or associated co-location cage. Total Access 5000 then allows service providers to immediately aggregate legacy PPP services onto their scalable and cost efficient Ethernet core. Future system releases will provide the additional ability to migrate legacy MLPPP, IMA, and Frame Relay support via multi-service cards. To facilitate this transition, a (3) port channelized DS3 Multiservice module will be available that will provide 84 T1’s per module. This module is used as a cost-effective interface between the existing TDM DCS and the Total Access 5000.
The ADTRAN Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) and Total Access 5600 series of Multi-Service Access Nodes (MSAN) are designed to help service providers quickly and profitably deliver voice, broadband and data transport capabilities for business and residential customers. The systems feature a large variety of high density service cards and a redundant, high reliability carrier-class architecture. Both solutions were developed with Ethernet at the core and both systems support legacy and emerging service interfaces over copper and fiber which can be easily scaled to support even the most bandwidth-intensive applications. All incoming services, regardless of protocol, are handled as Ethernet, creating a native service delivery model for advanced services without stranding existing legacy services.
Multi-Service Access Nodes (hiX 5600 Series)
The hiX 5600 series consists of high performance, carrier class IP multi-service access and aggregation nodes designed to ETSI standards. Four individual chassis are available to provide carriers maximum flexibility, with systems ranging from 144 ports/chassis to 1,008 ports/chassis. All systems are built upon a pure, carrier grade, IP core and support high bandwidth DSL and fiber access in addition to enabling a simple migration of voice services from POTS or ISDN to VoIP.
This unique mix of services from one single IP based platform enables service providers to quickly adapt to new business opportunities and remain highly competitive.
Multi-Service Access Platform (Total Access 5000)
The multiservice architecture of the Total Access 5000 allows the deployment of an advanced packet network infrastructure that is capable of delivering a host of services including POTS, DSL, PON and Ethernet across a pure Ethernet core. This robust packet network architecture allows service providers to use the Total Access 5000 to economically address both legacy and next-generation services while providing a seamless migration path towards a converged network architecture. Its integrated packet capabilities and highly scalable architecture provide flexible aggregation and transport options across multiple network topologies. As service providers undertake the network evolution required to deliver these next-generation services, the Total Access 5000 is one component of an industry-leading family of access and transport solutions that universally supports multiple network topologies, reduces unwanted operational complexity and maximizes network efficiency.
