CenturyLink is testing ADTRAN’s virtualized OLT 10G-PON solution in a field trial, in order to create a more flexible, manageable, and scalable access infrastructure, the company says.

This marks the first U.S. deployment of a disaggregated software-defined access (SD-Access) solution to create a more flexible, scalable and manageable access infrastructure, claims ADTRAN.

ADTRAN said its open architecture approach is instrumental in enabling its customers to create a simplified service delivery platform that can leverage a wide range of next-generation access technologies for fixed or mobile connectivity, accelerating the path to SD-Access.

Jay Wilson, SVP Technology and Strategy, ADTRAN
The solution spans the entire access network from the cloud edge to subscriber edge, providing services delivery and support for all physical access media, allowing our customers to create best of breed networks.

Aamir Hussain, EVP and CTO, CenturyLink
The move to an open, programmable and scalable access network will facilitate CenturyLink’s service agility and support faster deployment of services and applications for our customers. This solution will enable us to reduce operating costs through the economies of data center architectures and automate our networks as we look to offer 10G services and beyond.
