ADTRAN, a provider of cloud connectivity, enterprise communications and virtual mobility solutions, has expanded its ActivReach Ethernet switch portfolio with the introduction of the NetVanta 1235P Ethernet Switch with ActivReach. The NetVanta 1235P is purpose-built to speed up VoIP deployments with 10/100 Mbps voice, data and PoE over legacy voice-grade wiring.
In other words, the new solution fits in perfectly with the rest of the ActivReach portfolio. Introduced in October 2012, ActivReach was the industry’s first Ethernet technology to support all grades of wiring — including CAT5, CAT3 and basic voice-grade wiring — while extending service reach more than three times beyond the limits of standard Ethernet.
In the case of the NetVanta 1235P, the product is able to reduce disruption, cost and network downtime, allowing business, hosted service providers and value-added resellers to quickly and easily provider enhanced VoIP applications. The ActivReach portfolio also includes the NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch, which is designed for multiple applications, including VoIP, wireless and Gigabit to the Desktop.
“The NetVanta 1235P is purpose-built to enable advanced VoIP services while utilizing existing infrastructure for ultimate simplicity in deploying a next-generation network,” said Todd Lattanzi, director of product management for ADTRAN, in a statement. “This new solution in the ActivReach switch family demonstrates our commitment and investment in this innovative technology. The NetVanta 1235P is one more way ADTRAN is enabling its customers to break down the barriers to improving their voice and data networks.”
Specifically designed for voice applications, the NetVanta 1235P offers unique features and benefits, including 28 Ethernet ports with support for Layer 2/3-lite switching, 24 copper ports supporting standard 10/100 and ActivReach Ethernet technology and four Gigabit SFP uplink ports. Additionally, the solution boasts support for IEEE 802.3af PoE, Legacy PoE and PoE over ActivReach, as well as being VoIP-ready with support for LLDP/LLDP-MED and voice VLANS.
