Still Serving Veterans (SSV) is a Huntsville based non-profit that helps Veterans, and their families, find meaningful employment, access their VA benefits, and connect with the resources they need to build civilian lives.
Team Adtran has supported SSV in a variety of ways over the years. In 2018, an employee-led Holiday Market was held on our campus. For two days, employees were able to shop a wide variety of items that were hand crafted by employees. All the items were donated for the event and proceeds from the market were donated to SSV. The Holiday Market raised a total of $1,575. Team Adtran matched the donation and a check was presented to SSV for $3,150.00.
In 2020, Team Adtran donated to SSV on Giving Tuesday at the request of our employees.
“Your donation of $10,000 to Still Serving Veterans will make a real difference to Veterans of our community who are in true need. Winter is always a hard time of the year, and this year COVID-19 has made it even more challenging.With your kind-hearted support, Still Serving Veterans will be able to help Veterans with shelter, food, heating bills, and other basic life-support needs.”
Paulette M. Risher, SSV President/CEO
This year, Adtran had an opening on the IT Security team. Through SSV, Adtran was matched with Hayley Blair, a Navy Veteran.
Hear from Hayley about support of SSV during her transition from San Diego back to her home state of Alabama, which not only gave her a civilian job, but got her closer to family.

Fiber is being deployed everywhere and is the future-proof solution on everyone’s mind. Large public investments are being driven by initiatives like the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and the European Electronics Communications Code (EECC), and private equity investments. The shared goal remains access to fiber and gigabit services.
Yet, actual implementations of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) in rural areas and dense urban locations prove difficult. Taking fiber to rural communities costs a tremendous amount for little return in terms of average revenue per user. Urban areas suffer from physical obstacles such as roadways, rivers, or railroads, adding cost to an already expensive proposition. In addition, labor shortages and supply chain issues have led to a market ripe with demand but short on supply.
Can I Use Fixed Wireless for Gigabit Services? It may not be ideal.
Fixed wireless solutions have long been the staple for rural broadband, but bandwidth has been limited. Unlicensed 60GHz millimeter wave (mmWave) fixed wireless offers multi-gigabit backhaul and access and has now emerged as the ideal complement to extending fiber-like gigabit service. However, 60GHz technology has challenges, including limited range, required line-of-sight between nodes, and atmospheric conditions like O2 absorption.
The market needs a solution that delivers gigabit service while minimizing obstacles. An ideal solution would:
Alternate Solutions: A Business Case for D
This is the first in a two-part series of articles exploring XGS-PON vs. Active Ethernet. In this article, we will explore why operators must seriously consider ceasing the use of Active Ethernet in their new fiber deployments. The second article will discuss innovative solutions that will enable operators to leverage XGS-PON with any existing Active Ethernet network deployments, thus providing substantial power, space, and equipment cost savings.
The Storied Journey of Fiber Optic Networks
We live in a world where most people are accustomed to the joys of broadband internet, whether it be talking to their TVs, doing group calls with people across the globe, or cultivating virtual lives in cloud-hosted video games where the shackles of reality are left behind. It is absurd to think that less than three decades ago, the World Wide Web was born! The transformational impact on culture, commerce, and technology born from the internet was nothing short of revolutionary! Gigabit speeds are rapidly becoming the norm today. While many contend that users don’t need Gigabit, everyone agrees that this next speed tier is what operators are leveraging to attract customers onto their new fiber networks - Gigabit speeds today with multi-gigabit speeds just around the corner!
While most internet early adopters leveraged ‘twisted copper pairs’ used for analog telephony as dial-up internet access mechanisms, the internet truly began its journey toward democratization with the emergence of “always-on” Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL). DSL became the de facto telco technology to bring internet to homes and businesses. While cable TV companies also began bringing internet access, telephony services, along with digital TV signals, over coaxial cable systems to their end-users.
A technology that began to emerge in the early 1980s was fiber optics. Fiber-optic communication benefited from low signal loss and very-high capacity, which translate

First, we have attempted to construct a predictive model to help determine when a GPON port will become a bottleneck for Gigabit broadband consumption. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has defined three user types in its
