of all types to deliver innovative Gigabit services. From Tier 1

municipalities to regional and rural carriers, service providers are

to realize the transformative benefits of Gigabit services.

to introduce Gigabit services as part of our vision to help reinvent
communities around the country," said Jay Wilson, senior vice president
and general manager, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division. "ADTRAN's Gigabit

community economic growth and development for years to come."
