ADTRAN Honored with Two Product of the Year Awards for IP Communications and Cloud-based Mobile Offload

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of cloud connectivity, virtual mobility and enterprise communications solutions, today announced that both its NetVanta 1535P® Gigabit Ethernet Switch with ActivReach™ and Bluesocket virtual WLAN (vWLAN®) solutions for mobile offload services are recipients of TMC’s 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award. Each solution was recognized for being among the most innovative VoIP communication solutions brought to the market in the past year. Both of the ADTRAN solutions unleash users’ ability to harness the latest IP voice and data network capabilities to conquer network challenges today and prepare for the future.

ADTRAN’s NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch with ActivReach allows for maximum flexibility in designing networks across a variety of cable-plant infrastructures and at longer distances. With ActivReach, businesses can utilize their existing voice-grade wiring to access cutting-edge IP services at speeds up to 100Mbps, removing the need to perform costly replacements of existing cabling.

As the first cloud-based solution for carriers looking to utilize the benefits and efficiencies of mobile offload, the Bluesocket virtual WLAN combined with ADTRAN’s extensive portfolio of mobile backhaul solutions, allows control to be leveraged from a central point in the network and eliminates the need for hardware-based controllers. The fundamentally new approach provides unique and extreme scalability to Wi-Fi networks, allowing carriers to reduce cost and simplify management as they look to address the forecasted demand of mobile voice, data and video.

“Both the ActivReach and the Bluesocket vWLAN solution are unique to the industry, and we’re thrilled to be recognized with two TMC INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Awards,” said Todd Lattanzi, director of product management for ADTRAN’s Enterprise Networks Division. “The recognition demonstrates ADTRAN’s understanding of key market drivers coming from its customers and the company’s continued commitment to delivering innovative next-gen solutions for today’s network challenges.”

“It is with pleasure that we recognize ADTRAN with Product of the Year Awards. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that both the NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch with ActivReach and the Bluesocket vWLAN solutions display quality and innovation while providing solutions to real business communications challenges,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I would like to congratulate the team at ADTRAN for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”

2012 Product of the Year winners are published in the January/February 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998™.
