ADTRAN announced last week the release of a new solution, the ADTRAN Total Access Communication Node (TA5004). There is a set of interfaces and housing to deploy the last mile of fast Internet connections in rural areas. Fibre-optic communication lines extend to these nodes, from which copper wires, optical fibres or wireless lines can be diverted. The advantage of ADTRAN is the simplicity of deployment, as the box can be used in any location on a street pole. It can utilize existing communication lines or can be set up completely from scratch. Other benefits of the TA5004 include built-in cooling. The system can be powered by just about power sources: solar panels, utility power, diesel generator, etc.
The ADTRAN system enables networks to scale and have high connection speeds of up to 1 Gb/s. COVID-19 has contributed to the expansion of demand for these systems to a substantial extent. People who telecommute have driven up the demand for houses in remote and rural areas.
