ADTRAN Gains Prominence With Innovative Solution Offerings

Zacks Equity Research

ADTRAN, Inc. ADTN has introduced its fully-managed, cloud-based performance test solution to modernize data collection and reporting for network operators that use the Connect America Fund (CAF) program.

The service is an expansion of the ADTRAN CAF performance testing solution announced earlier this year. Since February, more than 30 CAF recipients have chosen ADTRAN’s network performance testing solution to comply with FCC reporting requirements.

ADTRAN designed this solution not only to make it easier for operators to integrate the FCC requirements into their day-to-day operations, but also to work around the uncertainty of customer LAN environments that may introduce inaccurate information into the FCC reporting and jeopardize funding.

This end-to-end solution equips service providers with the tools required to easily collect and submit performance testing data. It facilitates service providers to cover every FCC aspect, from the customer network to the test server to reporting requirements.

The standards-based software runs on any TR-069 compliant device, including xDSL, Ethernet, DOCSIS, PON, and LTE WAN gateways while allowing providers to remotely schedule and collect data on CAF performance and latency testing.

ADTRAN is optimizing its customer, geographic and product diversity momentum as communication service providers scale their network capabilities. The company is poised to benefit from growing customer engagements across its portfolio of software-defined access, 10G solutions and G.fast products. This apart, its global strategy of diversification across geographies and markets augur well for future growth.

The company’s revenues are diverse and well balanced, with contributions across North America, LATAM, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Pacific Rim regions. Its broad portfolio of next-generation solutions continues to gain traction with growing number of customers in an expanding range of market segments. It has long-term earnings growth expectation of 5%.

Other prominent players in the industry include Bandwidth Inc. BAND, Calix, Inc. CALX and Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. ZAYO.
