Alternative network ISPs Netomnia, Wildanet and Alncom have all confirmed that they’ve chosen ADTRAN’s 10Gbps capable XGS-PON solutions to help supply their respective deployments of a new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network across different parts of England.

First up is Wildanet’s £50m programme, which aims to deploy their FTTP network across Cornwall in South West England. According to ADTRAN, the provider will now adopt their Total Access 5000 10G fibre access platform with XGS-PON technology for this rollout.

As for Netomnia, they aim to cover 1 million UK premises with FTTP by 2024 and have already begun their initial deployment – worth £150m – to cover 500,000 premises across 15 towns. The provider has now selected ADTRAN’s SDX 6320 SD-Access Combo PON OLTs for their services. “The increased programmability of a disaggregated software-defined OLT architecture makes it easier for Netomnia to modify the network to take on future access technologies like G.HSP 50G PON,” said ADTRAN.

Finally, rural ISP Alncom (working alongside RunFibre), which is mostly focused on upgrading rural communities around parts of Northumberland, Durham and South Gloucestershire, has also opted to adopt ADTRAN’s Total Access 5000 (TA5000) fibre access platform for their network.

Paddy Paddison, CTO at Wildanet, said:

“There are many communities in Cornwall that are at a disadvantage because they lack access to fast internet. To address that issue, we’re building our own fibre network to service homes and businesses throughout the region. It will enable them to work from home, stream media, entertain and benefit from online health and education services.

To build the service, we required a large technology provider dedicated to our success. ADTRAN is the right partner for us to deliver the best system with the personalized attention and solution breadth to fit our unique network needs.”

Jeremy Chelot, CEO at Netomnia, said:

“We believe we have built one of the world’s most advanced fibre access networks that will support local communities for decades to come. Our advanced network offers our customers a differentiated service that excels in price, speed and customer experience. To accomplish this, we selected the only technology partner that could deliver a proven deployable SDN solution.

Working alongside ADTRAN has allowed us to execute on our ambitious fibre network project goals of delivering scalability, sustainability and simplicity in order to achieve our current and future goals.”

Stephen Pinchen, Managing Director of Alncom, said:

“ADTRAN helps us maintain a network and services that are reliable, fast and can be deployed cost-effectively. This enables our subscribers to connect to a network that can keep up with their daily activities and broadband demands today, and we’re confident we’ll still be able to support those needs as they grow in the future.”

ADTRAN has quickly become one of the top suppliers to FTTP broadband ISPs in the UK, having also scooped-up significant contract wins with various other operators, such as Openreach (BT), toob and CommunityFibre.

UPDATE 22nd Sept 2021

We’ve added Alncom above, as they also made an announcement at the same time, although ADTRAN didn’t publish these press releases on their site until much later.
