ADTRAN Delivers the First Fiber-to-the-Home Pilot Network in Athens

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that its GPON platform is enabling Forthnet to implement the first Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) pilot network in the metropolitan area of Athens, Greece. This platform will enable delivery of high-bandwidth triple play services to residential and business subscribers. With over 2,000 homes initially served in the municipality of Nea, Forthnet will be able to deliver FTTH based services that place Athens alongside other high-service density European FTTH deployments.

Forthnet is an experienced broadband provider that offers a compelling bundle of sports, movies and entertainment, plus telephony, over its existing DSL network. The ADTRAN GPON solution allows a simplified migration of Forthnet’s customer base to the new FTTH services, while enabling capacity and bandwidth scale for future demands of new media-rich services.

“We believe our future strategy for the transition to next generation networks should be based on FTTH architecture,” explains Mr. Giannis Kavaklis, Chief Commercial Director at Forthnet. “By taking this approach, we are not only enabling the Metropolitan area of Athens to make the necessary technology leap, but are also giving local residents and businesses the opportunity to use new bandwidth hungry applications without fear of reduced performance or latency. ADTRAN’s FTTH solution not only gives us the bandwidth required today, but also provides a simple migration path forward that helps us to stay competitive in our market in the long term.”

“FTTH is a game changer for service providers like Forthnet,” says Dr. Eduard Scheiterer, Managing Director, ADTRAN Europe. “What we are enabling with Forthnet is a new generation of network possibilities that places Forthnet at the pinnacle of the communication landscape in Greece. With new high-bandwidth applications being introduced on a continuous basis, it is important we provide the best technology the market has to offer. Our GPON solutions give Forthnet maximum flexibility and the scalability needed to accommodate future network growth.”
