Adtran upgrades 10G Combo PON OLT for retail, wholesale fiber expansion

Jan. 31, 2023
The SDX 6330 10Gbit/s Combo PON fiber access platform is Adtran’s third-generation disaggregated OLT, optimized to help service providers meet subscriber demand.

Adtran, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) has this month launched its SDX 6330 10Gbit/s Combo PON fiber access platform, enabling service providers to rapidly and cost-effectively connect homes and businesses with fiber-based broadband services.

The company contends the new open and disaggregated platform offers the industry’s highest port density and is the first optical line terminal (OLT) with integrated 400Gbit/s uplinks.

Adtran says the SDX 6330 will empower operators to accelerate fiber rollouts and easily scale their networks to support dense urban, suburban and rural deployments. With enhanced energy efficiency, the highly compact, temperature-hardened fiber access platform will be instrumental to meeting sustainability targets and addressing market demands for both retail and wholesale providers, claims the company.

The SDX 6330 is Adtran’s third generation of open and disaggregated OLT devices. With 48 ports of Combo PON capability in a compact and power-efficient design, the platform sets a benchmark for lowering the total cost of deployment for 10Gbit/s services.

Designed to deliver network simplicity and sustainability at scale, the company says the updated platform offers deployment versatility and improved reach. "Featuring open interfaces, it provides freedom to build best-in-class infrastructure with technology from multiple vendors, with a versatile architecture that supports a wide range of network topologies and coherent optics," adds a company press release. The SDX 6330 also helps meet corporate sustainability objectives by reducing power demand and landfill requirements, notes Adtran.

Ronan Kelly, CTO for EMEA and APAC at Adtran, commented

“Our SDX 6330 is the most advanced fiber access platform in the industry, and the impact it’s about to have will be significant. By empowering service providers to reduce both the time and cost of getting people connected, we’re going to see broadband coverage increase like never before. As pioneers in open and disaggregated fiber access innovation, we’ve consistently pushed boundaries, beginning with our industry-first deployments dating back to 2017. Now with our third-generation device, we’re taking density and scalability to new heights. Our SDX 6330 will transform networks into flexible, multigigabit service delivery platforms, empowering operators to stay ahead of the bandwidth consumption curve.”

Robert Conger, SVP of technology and strategy at Adtran, concluded:

“Service providers face a tough environment as they strive to keep up with growing subscriber needs, expand coverage and meet green targets. With households and businesses accessing more and more data-hungry applications, operators need strategies in place to handle the surge in a cost-effective and sustainable way. This challenge is precisely what our third-generation fiber access platform aims to address. Our SDX 6330 offers the network simplicity, sustainability and scalability needed to power the Gigabit Society. That’s what makes it a compelling alternative to chassis-based architectures. It’s the solution many operators are searching for as they look to expand their market share while improving customer experience.”
