ADTRAN Partners with NRTC on 10G for Northern Texas

By Ken Briodagh June 16, 2020

ADTRAN, a provider of fiber and fiber extension broadband access solutions, recently announced that, through its Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program, it is working with North Texas’ United Cooperative Services (UCS) to deliver multi-gigabit services to the electric cooperative’s membership in 14 counties. Represented by the National Rural Telecommunications Council (NRTC), UCS is a provider of high-performance broadband to previously underserved rural communities. UCS said it selected ADTRAN’s 10G fiber access portfolio to build and manage a flexible and highly-scalable network and ADTRAN’s Mosaic Device Manager to better manage end-to-end performance.

“UCS is continuously working to find new ways to provide members with exceptional service and value,” said Cameron Smallwood, GM and CEO, United Cooperative Services. “Through a member vote, we received a 91% approval rate to move forward with deploying a network to provide 10G services. We will be able to provide a seamless high-speed broadband internet experience to our members, enabling them to thrive in today’s connected world.”

To increase operational efficiency and lower costs, UCS also implemented ADTRAN’s Mosaic Device Manager. Mosaic Device Manager is designed to provide end-to-end provisioning of subscriber devices, perform remote troubleshooting, increase first call resolution and decrease the need for truck rolls.

“It is our mission to help our electric cooperative and telephone members bring the advantages of the best technology available to their communities,” said Scott Pell, CTO, NRTC Broadband Solutions, which designed and is managing the project for UCS. “An important step in this process is to pair with a vendor that understands the needs of our members. ADTRAN’s commitment to building flexible and scalable networks, experience in delivering XGS-PON and long history of serving rural communities made them the ideal partner for UCS’ network build.”
