HUNTSVILLE, Ala.–(November 9, 2005)–ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN), the leading supplier of packetbased
integrated access solutions, today introduced two new platforms designed to simplify carrier IP voice and
data service delivery for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs). The Total Access 904 and 908 are
multiservice access gateways that combine the voice functionality of ADTRAN’s industry-leading Integrated
Access Devices (IADs) with advanced IP routing, security, and Quality of Service (QoS) features. At the lowest
price point in the market, these platforms allow carriers to expedite deployments of feature-rich Voice over IP
(VoIP), SIP trunking, and Hosted PBX applications.
“The forecasted rapid growth in adoption rates of next-generation services like VoIP among SMB customers is
fueling the need for the evolution of the IAD into an intelligent, multiservice platform,” said Keith Nissen, senior
analyst, In-Stat. “Total Access 900 Series platforms address the needs of the carrier by providing the flexibility to
meet a variety of applications, both mixed-mode and IP, with a single device that leads the industry in terms of
functionality and price point.”
“As the leader in the integrated access market, we are working closely with our carrier customers to help them
meet the changing needs of their networks by offering the flexibility to support both legacy and next-generation
applications cost-effectively,” said Tim Saunders, vice president of product management, ADTRAN Enterprise
Networks Division. “Regardless of the service the carrier is rolling out, whether it is data only, IP trunking, or
Hosted PBX, the Total Access 900 Series can meet its needs in a single platform that simplifies installation,
configuration, upgrades, and management.”
For carriers implementing IP network architectures, the Total Access 904 and 908 provide the flexibility to support
a number of applications including trunk-side services, like PRI, to accommodate proprietary IP PBXs and
traditional PBXs or phone systems, hosted PBX applications utilizing IP phones, and line-side service offerings.
These devices provide a T1 port for WAN connectivity, a 10/100Base-T Ethernet port for connection to an
Ethernet switch, a PRI/T1 port for PBX connectivity, and either four or eight voice ports to support a variety of
analog devices. The Total Access 904 and 908 offer a SIP Gateway, a robust IP router, stateful inspection
firewall, advanced QoS features, IPSec VPN functionality, remote survivability, IP phone provisioning and
management, and call admission control, all within a single multiservice platform.
