Copper Valley Telecom Selects ADTRAN Total Access 5000 and 1124P for Rural Broadband Expansion

Solution Delivers Advanced Broadband Services to the Most Rural Environments

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation converged access solutions, today announced that Copper Valley Telephone Cooperative, dba Copper Valley Telecom (CVT), a leading provider of communications services for Alaska's Valdez/Copper River Basin, has selected ADTRAN's Total Access® 5000 Multi-Service Access and Aggregation Platform (MSAP) and Total Access 1124P OSP DSLAM for Broadband DLC and rural broadband expansion.

"The ADTRAN Total Access 5000 and Total Access 1124P solution allows us to provide Broadband services 70 miles from the nearest office and 85 kilofeet from the nearest commercial power source," said Mitch Vieu, plant manager, CVT. "ADTRAN was the only manufacturer that had the technology to reliably reach the most remote areas of Alaska, while providing the capability to deliver next-generation IP triple-play services in a cost-effective manner."

The Total Access 1124P environmentally hardened Broadband DLC allows service providers to deliver baseband POTS and broadband multimedia to any customer over a single copper pair. With a universal power supply, the Total Access 1124P provides options for local commercial power or line powering over copper outside plant pairs. Service providers find line powering an attractive option where commercial power is not financially feasible or where availability is impossible. When combined with the Total Access 5000, they provide a complete broadband access solution that bridges the broadband divide, by ensuring all customers can be reached regardless of power and transport restraints, all while using the latest in end-to-end Ethernet technology.

"ADTRAN offers one of the most unique solutions on the market for broadband expansion with the combination of the Total Access 5000 and the Total Access 1124P," said P. Steven Locke, vice president of sales, service providers, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division. "Service expansion in rural areas is often challenging, but Alaska faces some of the harshest weather conditions, making deployment even more difficult. The Total Access 1124P is a hardened, weatherproof solution that can be mounted virtually anywhere, eliminating the need for cabinets, and relieving power constraints. It is an unparalleled solution for rural deployments."

The ADTRAN Total Access 5000 is a MSAP that efficiently enables service providers to deploy many carrier-class services from a common product. An all-Ethernet core provides scalability to meet any access service demand. The Total Access 5000 is the ideal solution for both fiber and copper access technologies gracefully handling the transition from legacy to next-generation services and providing a path toward a converged network.
