Arthur Mutual Telephone Company in Ohio Picks ADTRAN's Total Access 5000

Arthur Mutual Telephone Company (“Arthur”), a cooperative telephone company operating in rural northwest Ohio, has picked ADTRAN to support its next-generation Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) network.


Arthur officials said that they have switched to ADTRAN Total Access 5000 platform over DSL platform to help them future-proof the network and also enhance the company’s investment.

The ADTRAN Total Access 5000 series is a carrier class multi-service access and aggregation platform that bridges the gap between the existing and the next generation networks. With a pure Ethernet core, the Total Access 5000 supports both legacy and emerging service interfaces over both copper and fiber, easily scaling to support even the most bandwidth intensive applications. The new deployment is now helping Arthur to distribute services to residential and business customers over one of the most advanced networks in Ohio.

“During our trials and analysis for the FTTH roll-out, ADTRAN stood out amongst all the companies we evaluated. The flexibility and robustness of the Total Access 5000, as well as ADTRAN’s reputation for working closely with service providers to ensure success of the deployment, gave us no doubt that ADTRAN was the right partner for us,” said Eric Roughton, general manager for Arthur. “We know we are well positioned to meet future growth in services and subscribers and have greater peace-of-mind knowing we’ve made a future-proof investment.”

The Total Access 5000 solution provides converged POTS and enhanced broadband services using the ADSL2+, VDSL2 and GPON technologies. It provides a clear migration path for traditional services through its flexible network uplink options, including support for both TDM and VoIP switches.

ADTRAN has interconnected the platform’s central office equipment and remote terminals through a 10Gbps ERPS ring. This helps the telephone company to easily expand to multiple 10Gbps links over existing fiber using ADTRAN’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) solution, providing Arthur with virtually unlimited bandwidth.

Mitch Fleming, vice president of sales for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division said, “ADTRAN continues its commitment to serving as a long-term partner for these providers, delivering the tools and support necessary to deploy and maintain high-bandwidth networks for the highest quality-of-service.”
