Telecommunications have certainly evolved since the days of Alexander Graham Bell. Nowadays, you don’t even need an actual phone to make a phone call, and even our mobile devices have taken on the responsibility of acting as miniature Web conferencing tools. Through all of the ways we can communicate, there’s of course a host of equipment that’s connecting us, so no, it doesn’t just happen out of thin air.
In the telecommunications space, we hear a lot about carrier Ethernet, mobile backhaul, gateways, routers, wireless LAN, IP phones, network routing, broadband access, mobile offload, managed network services…just to name a few. The list is quite longer than that. To service providers, this list means intelligent solutions that can help them offer services like voice, data and video to you, the customer. Consider these items like the man behind the curtain; without them, the Internet and how we use it to communicate simply wouldn’t work.
Companies like Adtran offer the products to service providers that enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures. Adtran solutions are currently in use by service providers, private enterprises, government organizations, and millions of individual users worldwide.
For service providers, having the most features means being able to appeal to a more widespread group of individuals and businesses, thus resulting in more revenue and customers. That’s what Adtran does – it helps service providers do just that.
It’s not just service providers that Adtran helps. The company most recently assisted a private residential community with its communications needs, and the community now has access to a highly reliable ultra-fast broadband network that scales as the local population peaks throughout the year.
Adtran has a pretty extensive portfolio of equipment and services. Hear what Parker Smith of Adtran had to say about it all at this year’s ITEXPO Las Vegas event:
