Delivering deployable reference access architectures to MSOs and CSPs to provide the network economies of data centers and the service agility of cloud providers.
Modern networks use open services architectures that support ultra-short micro-release schedules which speed time-to-market. Traditional telco and cable operators must ready themselves to adopt new open services architectures and become more agile if they want to retain their current market share and compete for new services revenue.
SD-Access networks are built on modern architectural principles and apply lessons learned from data center networks. This approach is an architectural shift from previous networks that have historically relied on closed, monolithic systems being managed by vendor-specific management systems. This evolution enables operators to vastly lower their cost to build, operate, innovate and maintain their network.
With today's service provider networks, rolling out a new service can be a complicated and costly endeavor. Highly programmable SD-Access networks support the adoption of network automation and service orchestration that reduce service provisioning times, human error and IT complexity, while enabling the desirable customer self-service capabilities.
THE ADTRAN APPROACH
ADTRAN is accelerating the path to SD-Access with Mosaic. This solution provides an open, programmable and scalable architecture that spans the entire network from cloud edge to subscriber edge - from data center to device and delivers improved efficiency, reduced OpEx and a path for future growth.
The Approach to Services Has Changed
The world is changing. We are moving to a Platform Economy of user-driven services. Operator networks must have the flexibility, bandwidth and scale to meet this challenge. ADTRAN has the change agent - Mosaic.

Applying Data Center Architectures to Access
With an open architecture approach, service providers have the freedom to choose best-of-breed elements and control the introduction and rollout of new customer applications and broadband technologies, eliminating high overhead costs.
