ITS selects Adtran’s fibre access platform for its wholesale network

16 Sep 2022

UK-based ITS Technology Group (ITS) has selected Adtran’s ‘open and disaggregated 10G fibre access platform’ to future-proof its wholesale network, which it markets under the ‘Faster Britain’ banner. In a press release regarding the matter, it was suggested that the wholesale network provider selected the Adtran 10G fibre access platform because it uses an open and disaggregated architecture that eliminates vendor lock-in while providing the flexibility needed to sell services through a diverse set of partners and channels. Further, it was said that the software-defined platform offers leading service scalability that will enable ITS to support its business today and in the future with minimal infrastructure changes.

Commenting, Mike Goodwin, CTO at ITS Technology Group, said: ‘As experts in delivering full-fibre infrastructure and the provisioning of wholesale Gigabit-capable services, we rely on partners like Adtran to provide high-quality solutions to help us stay ahead of the technology curve. Our partners benefit from our deployment of XGS-PON technology as it allows us to deliver basic broadband for Ethernet services over the same customer connection. We’re impressed with Adtran’s engagement, support and willingness to work with us in achieving our ambitious objectives.’

ITS designs, builds and operates wholesale, gigabit-capable, full fibre networks for business services in the UK, and the company has claimed that Faster Britain is on track to pass 25% of the country’s business premises by the end of 2022.
