Provider of cloud connectivity, virtual mobility and enterprise communications solutions, ADTRAN (News - Alert), was today honored with not one, but two 2012 Internet Telephony Product of the Year Awards from TMC. Both the NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch with ActivReach and the Bluesocket (News - Alert) virtual WLAN (vWLAN) solution were recognized as among the most innovative VoIP communication solutions introduced in the last year.
ADTRAN's NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch offers a high degree of flexibility when designing networks across a variety of cable-plant infrastructures and across longer distances. The solutions ActiveReach technology allows businesses to leverage their existing voice-grade wiring to access cutting-edge IP services at speeds of up to 100 Mbps, eliminating the need for infrastructure upgrading.
Bluesocket vWLAN, meanwhile, is the first cloud-based solution for carriers wanting to utilize the benefits and efficiencies of mobile offload. When combined with ADTRAN's portfolio of mobile backhaul solutions, Bluesocket vWLAN enables control from a central point in a network, eliminating the need for hardware-based controllers. This allows for extreme scalability in Wi-Fi networks, in turn allowing carriers to reduce cost and simplify management.
"Both the ActivReach and the Bluesocket vWLAN solution are unique to the industry, and we're thrilled to be recognized with two TMC Internet Telephony Product of the Year Awards," said Todd Lattanzi (News - Alert), director of product management for ADTRAN's Enterprise Networks Division, in a statement. "The recognition demonstrates ADTRAN's understanding of key market drivers coming from its customers and the company's continued commitment to delivering innovative next-gen solutions for today's network challenges."
