Adtran has signed a broadband access supply agreement with Australia’s nbn covering software, hardware and services to support nbn’s ongoing nationwide network rollout.

Both companies have already completed a number of milestones, including a GPON network interoperability proof-of-concept program of work.

In addition, Adtran IT specialists have been working in a collaborative development process with nbn’s IT team to implement Adtran’s standards-based, multi-vendor DPU management solution, utilizing an open microservices architecture that allows network operations and IT development teams to align for greater service agility.

Adtran says its Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) solutions combine modern web-scale technology with open-source platforms to facilitate rapid innovation in multi-technology, multi-vendor environments. SD-Access unlocks control and management functions from the underlying network elements, enabling a more flexible, agile services delivery framework.

“Rolling out new technologies can be a complicated and costly endeavor for network service providers, especially in multi-vendor environments,” said Jay Wilson, Adtran SVP for Technology and Strategy, adding that SD-Access supports adoption of network automation that reduces service provisioning times, human error and IT complexity.
