Multi-gigabit fiber access and fiber extension specialist Adtran, Inc. recently announced that Michigan Broadband Services is leveraging a combination of Adtran technologies to deliver and manage high-speed broadband services to residential and business subscribers.
Adtran is enabling the broadband service provider to deploy an end-to-end fiber broadband platform that the company says guarantees unmatched continuous connectivity to all devices in subscribers’ homes.
Michigan Broadband Services is an internet service provider that serves rural communities -- and in many regions of the state, it is the only internet provider. While high-speed internet connectivity is a rare luxury in many rural towns, Michigan Broadband Services said it wanted to ensure its customers had the same, or better, quality of connectivity as any other market across Michigan.
The ISP worked with local township supervisors, elected officials and state broadband offices to help the entire community understand the impact broadband can have on local development and opportunities. Michigan Broadband Services ultimately selected the Adtran 10G fiber access platform, featuring the company's Combo PON technology, to build a scalable fiber network foundation that will support subscriber capacity demands today and in the future.
Further, Adtran notes that its cloud software provides Michigan Broadband Services with an AI-driven, adaptive Wi-Fi management solution that the company said "makes it simple to ensure Wi-Fi performance, provide best-in-class customer care, and increase broadband network quality."
“Adtran’s AI-driven cloud software provides a single view to a host of intuitive, actionable intelligence that helps us create service stickiness with our customers. These benefits make this deployment a win-win for us and the people and communities we serve. Adtran is always there to support us with a high level of service, quality of product and commitment of the team that we just hadn’t experienced in previous relationships. With Adtran in our network, we can reach any customer, deliver high-quality broadband to any location, answer subscriber questions quickly and support any smart home application or streaming service to which our customers subscribe.” -- Phil Truran, president and GM, Michigan Broadband Services.“Michigan Broadband Services is committed to delivering the level of service normally found in bigger cities delivered by much larger operators. It is all about unlocking the in-home opportunity for our customers. The flexibility delivered by the Adtran end-to-end fiber broadband solution creates opportunities for our customers to take their service infrastructure to the next level and deliver an unmatched return on investment.” -- Brent Cancienne, vice president of U.S. regional sales, Adtran.
