Adtran expands VoIP switch portfolio

18 Mar 15

Adtran has announced it is expanding its VoIP switch portfolio with the addition of the NetVanta 1510 and 1550 families of Gigabit Ethernet switches.

The vendor says this will increase its focus on the demanding application needs of VoIP and provide a strong foundation for VoIP business communications to reduce issues like dropped calls and inconsistent call quality.

Adtran says its new offerings allow VARs, MSPs and carriers to overcome traditional VoIP network issues with voice-aware switches that deliver voice fidelity, accelerate deployment, and maximum uptime for premises-based and hosted voice services.

As a result, VARs and service providers have increased network control and added functionality and security. This, in turn, allows them to focus on growing their business and optimising customer experiences, Adtran says.

The NetVanta 1510 web-managed Gigabit Ethernet switches and NetVanta 1550 fully-managed Gigabit Ethernet switches are cloud-ready and can be managed via Adtran ProCloud.

These switch families are the first in a series of announcements and releases the company plans to make in 2015.

“In order to have rock solid VoIP implementation, businesses must have a switch with voice acumen,” says Todd Lattanzi, Adtran director product management.

“Adtran’s VoIP switch portfolio experienced tremendous growth over the last two years as it demonstrated its intelligence and performance to the marketplace.

“Adtran is enabling VARs, MSPs and carriers to build strong voice foundations for business communications networks, and we look forward to advancing performance levels even further as we set a new standard for voice communications throughout the industry,” he says.

In New Zealand, Adtran is distributed by Connector Systems. Local availability is yet to be announced.
