Adtran today announced that Talkie Communications is utilizing its flexible XGS-PON fiber broadband solution to offer high-speed services to businesses and residential customers in Maryland.

Talkie Communications’ new full-fiber infrastructure leverages Adtran’s TA5000 for the delivery of high-bandwidth services. With symmetrical 10Gbit/s connectivity, the XGS-PON technology enables both downstream and upstream data transmission at lightning-fast speeds, empowering Talkie Communications’ subscribers to take advantage of low-latency applications and cloud-based resources. The scalability of XGS-PON guarantees the network can easily accommodate growing customer demand. What’s more, the highly energy-efficient Adtran TA5000 contributes to Talkie Communications’ sustainability goals by reducing power consumption and operational costs.

“Our innovation is empowering Talkie Communications to take its network to the next level, providing the capacity and agility needed to deliver tailored, high-performance service packages to its customers. That’s great news for local economies and a major boost to those who for too long have been left on the wrong side of the digital divide,” commented John Scherzinger, GM of Americas sales at Adtran. “People often talk about future-proofing their infrastructure, but by making the jump to 10Gbit/service offerings today, Talkie Communications is pushing even further ahead. For enterprises and households in Maryland, the future has already arrived.”
