You are spoiled for choice

With the internationally operating provider Adtran, which is strongly anchored in Europe, BN expands its Gigabit Access portfolio with an additional software-based access platform.

For several years now, we at BN have been focusing on software-based access technologies, as we are convinced that this is the only way for network operators to remain competitive in the future and to offer their customers an optimal service.

«We are very much looking forward to working with BN and together expanding Adtran's presence in the Swiss market»
— Markus Ranner, Director Sales Europe at Adtran

From very small to very large

«After a comprehensive evaluation, we chose Adtran as an additional software-based access platform to complement our Gigabit Access portfolio. It was particularly important to us that we can offer the Swiss network operators a modular platform based on open standards that enables successful positioning on the market in the long term,» says Daniel Schurter, Team Leader Gigabit Access at BN. 

In fact, Adtran's access platform is ideal for small and medium-sized network operators and combines the economies of scale of a data center with the agility of a cloud provider: 

  • Platform for PON technologies

  • Open and disaggregated OLT platforms

  • SDN-based network control, programable access platform

  • Offers a variety of different ONTs and residential gateways with OpenSync (Plume)

  • Ability to integrate third-party ONTs

  • Cost-effective and scalable, helping to lower both CAPEX and OPEX
