Next-gen-network provider Adtran Inc. is bolstering its Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) offerings with its new Total Access 1600, a family of 1RU form-factor optical-line terminals (OLTs) that support either Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) or Ethernet FTTH (Active Ethernet).

The company explains that while the new solutions occupy less space, “they are not limited when it comes to functionality, offering 40 Gbps-per-system network uplink capability, Ethernet ring support, multi-system link aggregation and stacking options.”
“The market for bandwidth-intensive applications has pushed deeper into the Tier 2 and 3 markets, with more and more IOCs and smaller telecom operators looking at equipment that helps them compete effectively in this demanding market,” notes industry researcher David Emberley. Taking this into account, the Total Access 1600 family reportedly  provides multiple cost-optimized, access-side interface options: and 4-, 8- and 16-port GPON and 48-port Gigabit Ethernet. And it is fully backward compatible.
