Businesses can leverage existing voice wiring infrastructure to
implement Wi-Fi and unified communications services
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) today announced the release of its NetVanta®
1235P Ethernet Switch with ActivReach™—the latest addition to its
ActivReach Switch Portfolio. The NetVanta 1235P with ActivReach is
purpose-built to speed VoIP deployments, delivering 10/100 Mbps voice,
data and PoE over legacy voice-grade wiring. The new solution reduces
disruption, cost and network downtime. As a result, businesses, hosted
service providers and value-added resellers can quickly and easily
provide enhanced VoIP applications like unified communications and Wi-Fi.
Many businesses, regardless of their networking environment, are looking
to deploy bandwidth-rich business-class IP services, such as
high-definition voice and video communications, to enable a more
collaborative and productive environment. However, running new Ethernet
cabling is a cost barrier and construction nightmare, especially in aged
or historic buildings. ADTRAN's ActivReach technology eliminates these
concerns by utilizing existing cabling—CAT5, CAT3 or legacy copper—for
immediate, cost-effective VoIP deployments. In addition, ActivReach
extends Ethernet reach up to 488 meters (1600 ft.), allowing networks
requiring long cable runs to deploy a single switch to serve a wider
service area. When compared to traditional technology that only reaches
100 meters and requires expensive repeaters to extend reach, ActivReach
provides significant savings in infrastructure costs and network
ADTRAN's expanded portfolio of ActivReach switches provides customers
increased flexibility to deploy the right switch for their unique
network needs—whether they need single application support or support
for a broad range of applications. The ActivReach portfolio includes the
NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet Switch for multiple applications,
including VoIP, wireless and Gigabit to the Desktop. The newest addition
to the ActivReach portfolio—the NetVanta 1235P—is specifically designed
for voice applications. Specific features and benefits of the NetVanta
1235P with ActivReach include:
28 Ethernet ports with support for Layer 2/3-lite switching
24 copper ports supporting both standard 10/100 and ActivReach
Four Gigabit SFP uplink ports - two Standard SFP ports capable of 1
Gbps operation and two enhanced SFP ports capable of up to 2.5 Gbps
VoIP-ready with support for LLDP/LLDP-MED and voice VLANS
Support for IEEE 802.3af PoE, Legacy PoE and PoE over ActivReach
"ADTRAN continues to expand its ActivReach Ethernet Switch portfolio in
order to meet the needs of businesses looking for an affordable path to
high-bandwidth voice and data services. The NetVanta 1235P is
purpose-built to enable advanced VoIP services while utilizing existing
infrastructure for ultimate simplicity in deploying a next-generation
network," said Todd Lattanzi, director of product management for ADTRAN.
"This new solution in the ActivReach switch family demonstrates our
commitment and investment in this innovative technology. The NetVanta
1235P is one more way ADTRAN is enabling its customers to break down the
barriers to improving their voice and data networks."
