ADTRAN announced its acquisition of SmartRG, a leading company that provides open-source connected home platforms and cloud services for broadband service providers.

Based in Vancouver, Washington, SmartRG brings long-standing industry leadership and expertise in open-source software development, as well as a comprehensive portfolio of cloud-managementanalyticsWi-Fi-enabled residential gateways and its SmartOS software platform.

The company’s executive team and employees will remain in place to ensure a seamless transition and accelerated market share growth, while leveraging ADTRAN’s global reach and resources.

Together, ADTRAN Mosaic and Smart OS provide full end-to-end management and orchestration solutions from cloud edge to subscriber edge. 

SmartRG counts more than 3 million devices in service and over 1.3 million devices under management in North America, the Caribbean and South America. The company expects to scale and drive growth through its differentiated software solutions as more customers shift from closed, proprietary options to SmartOS—its open-source-based, cloud-enabled solution suite.

Jay Wilson, Sr. VP of Technology and Strategy, Adtran
SmartRG’s expansive customer base exemplifies its market leadership and we are committed to a smooth transition, as we move toward full collaboration and integration with our award-winning Mosaic platforms.

Jeff Mclnnis, President and CEO, SmartRG
As fiber-based, virtually future-proof residential networks become a reality and bandwidth is no longer the gating factor, value creation will come from the ability to optimize the subscriber experience.
