ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of
next-generation networking solutions, has quintupled its VDSL port
shipments in EMEA over the last 18 months following increased demand for
its widely acclaimed vectoring capabilities. This traction comes as Dr.
Eduard Scheiterer is promoted to senior vice president and managing
director for international markets, who will lead ADTRAN's global market
expansion, underscoring the significance of international markets to
ADTRAN's global growth strategy.
"Over the past two years, ADTRAN has achieved exceptional growth in its
EMEA-based business," said Tom Stanton, chairman and CEO of ADTRAN.
"Service providers across EMEA and the rest of our international markets
are continuing to see premium broadband services as an integral
component of their future opportunities."
Continuing its strong growth trajectory, ADTRAN is investing in its
global solutions portfolio to provide the necessary innovations to move
the marketplace into the next generation of broadband access and
networking solutions. According to Dr. Scheiterer, "our strategy is to
continue engagement with new and existing customers around their
next-generation access requiremets with a view towards enhancing their
vectoring capabilities as well as future gigabit broadband options."
ADTRAN's recently introduced Frequency Division Vectoring (FDV)
technology enables carriers across EMEA to significantly broaden their
G.fast addressable market in the region. By enabling both G.fast and
VDSL2 vectoring to better coexist by working in tandem across a single
subscriber line in the service provider's network, service providers are
able to preserve investments in their Fiber-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC)
infrastructure. FDV doubles data rates and increases the reach of
intermediate-rate services - between 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps - which allows
for delivery of cost-effective premium broadband to 80% more subscribers.
"In a short period of time, ADTRAN has risen to become a leader in
Europe's broadband market," said Roland Montagne, principal analyst at
IDATE. "With the industry's shift toward increasing broadband speed
requirements coupled with ADTRAN's commitment to innovation as evidenced
with FDV, the groundwork has been laid for them to remain a worthy
competitor for the foreseeable future."
In addition to ADTRAN's broadband access success, the company has
started to gain momentum in the EMEA market within the enterprise
segment. This enterprise market growth is driven by the company's
industry-leading IP Business Gateways, Multi-Service Fiber Access
Gateways, as well as its innovative virtual wireless LAN and ProCloud
Wi-Fi offerings. These solutions are proving to be key enabling
technologies for enterprise customers demanding a universal networking
platform to connect any service, on any device, over any network.
