Adtran today announced it is enabling enterprises, small businesses and schools to more quickly leverage Gigabit speeds with the release of its 10G Ethernet Aggregation Switch. The high-performance solution offers more capacity and reliability than traditional switches, making it ideal for businesses looking to support growing demands for high-bandwidth VoIP, world-class Wi-Fi, Gigabit-to-the-Desktop and cloud connectivity. Adtran has combined these capabilities in its 10G solution to empower enterprises with networks that are transforming the way schools teach, people work and healthcare is delivered.

The rise in Gigabit services in the access network is creating opportunities for enterprises to access premium voice and data networks. In the classroom, Gigabit connectivity empowers students and teachers with ultra-fast access to media-rich learning tools such as collaboration platforms and streaming video that foster a more individualized learning experience. In the office, Gigabit services create more reliable connectivity as well as high-performance business communications and cloud services. In healthcare, Gigabit services enable doctors to become remote care givers by streaming consultations over high-bandwidth connections directly into patients’ homes.

“ADTRAN helps businesses make Gigabit a reality—whether they are looking to leverage 1 Gigabit services or prepare for the possibilities that are unfolding with 10G,” said Chris Thompson, director, customer devices portfolio, ADTRAN. “We’re enabling businesses to more easily support transformative Gigabit services. ADTRAN’s 10G Ethernet Switch is the next step in our path to connect the access network to the end consumer with next-generation technology and ultra-fast broadband speeds.”

The 10G Ethernet Switch can be leveraged as a high-capacity Top-of-Rack core switch or an aggregation switch in data center environments. Link aggregation allows for the grouping of up to four 10G ports into one 40G port at the physical layer for scalable high-bandwidth aggregation. As enterprises look to adopt SDN-ready technologies, ADTRAN’s 10G Ethernet Switch offers an open and programmable architecture that can grow with customer requirements and provide a transitory solution for migrating to SDN-enabled networks.
