HUNTSVILLE, AL — Taking aim at both the IPTV and RF branches of the telco TV market, Â equipment vendor ADTRAN introduced aÂ slew of new video-related additions to its Total Access 5000 Multi-Service Access Platform.
Integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet: The Total Access 5000 supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Rings via the ITU-T G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) standard. In addition to the ERPS capability, the ability to configure multiple 10G network interfaces provides carriers with unprecedented bandwidth delivery in support of FTTP and FTTN architectures.
HomePNA-enabled GPON optical network terminals (ONTs): Eliminating the costs associated with new in-home wiring for high-bandwidth services like IPTV, ADTRAN’s Total Access 300 Series of HPNA3.1 enabled ONTs provides data rates up to 320 Mbps over existing in-home coaxial wiring, offering service providers a fast and easy way to deploy IPTV with no new wires.
Radio Frequency (RF) Enabled GPON ONTs: Allowing carriers to use existing RF video headends, the Total Access 300 Series of RF-enabled ONTs offers a flexible mix of solutions. RF one-way path solutions are supported, as well as two integrated solutions with return path capabilities â€” support for the Scientific Atlanta Single Wire Return Device (SWRD) and the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) RF over Glass (RFoG) solution. The ADTRAN Total Access 300 Series SCTE RFoG ONTs enable two-way communications support for SCTE 55-1, 55-2 and DOCSIS, regardless of headend type.
Multiple-Dwelling Unit (MDU) ONT: Designed for multidwelling-unit buildings, particularly garden-style apartment buildings, the Total Access 380 MDU ONT offers an integrated 1:4 fiber splitter, enhanced cable management, a common powering system (a single UPS/BBU can power all the ONTs installed in the housing) and a flexible shelf system allowing individual ONT units to be installed or serviced without disrupting service to other customers. The enclosure supports all current ADTRAN ONT models, providing flexibility to support a mix of pure IPTV or RF video solutions from a single ONT housing.
VDSL2 FTTN Access Modules: In addition to single-pair and bonded ADSL2+ solutions for IPTV service delivery, the addition of VDSL2 on the Total Access 5000 provides carriers with another service delivery option over existing copper infrastructure. Enabling data rates up to 100 Mbps per pair with optional VDSL2-Ethernet in the First Mile bonding, the Total Access 5000 offers two different solutions â€” a VDSL2 module with integrated POTS splitter and a COMBO VDSL2 module, which offers both integrated POTS and VDSL2 on the same line card, simplifying outside-plant deployments.
