Adtran | January 25, 2023
On January 24, 2023, Adtran, Inc., a provider of next-generation disaggregated and open network solutions, introduced the SDX 6330 10Gbit/s Combo PON fiber access platform. This platform enables service providers to connect homes and businesses quickly and affordably using fiber-based broadband.
The open and disaggregated solution offers the first OLT (optical line terminal) with integrated 400Gbit/s uplinks and provides the highest port density in the industry. As a result, operators can quickly grow their networks to enable dense urban, suburban, and rural deployments and speed up fiber rollout. The highly compact, temperature-hardened, and energy-efficient fiber access platform will be crucial for achieving sustainability goals and meeting market demands for both wholesale and retail providers.
As Adtran's third generation of disaggregated and open OLT devices, the SDX 6330 establishes a new standard for reducing the overall cost of deployment for 10Gbit/s services, with 48 ports of Combo PON in a small and power-efficient design. The solution provides deployment flexibility and better reach and is created to deliver network sustainability and simplicity at scale.
The platform's flexible architecture supports a variety of network topologies and coherent optics, and its open interfaces give customers the freedom to create best-in-class infrastructure using technology from multiple vendors. The SDX 6330 also helps businesses achieve sustainability targets by lowering power consumption and landfill needs.
Ronan Kelly, Chief Technical Officer for EMEA and APAC at Adtran, commented, "Our SDX 6330 is the most advanced fiber access platform in the industry, and the impact it's about to have will be significant. By empowering service providers to reduce both the time and cost of getting people connected, we're going to see broadband coverage increase like never before." He added, "As pioneers in open and disaggregated fiber access innovation, we've consistently pushed boundaries, beginning with our industry-first deployments dating back to 2017. Now with our third-generation device, we're taking density and scalability to new heights. Our SDX 6330 will transform networks into flexible, multigigabit service delivery platforms, empowering operators to stay ahead of the bandwidth consumption curve."

Pivotal Commware | February 20, 2023
Pivotal Commware, the leading provider of 5G mmWave infrastructure products for the wireless edge, recently introduced its next-generation Pivot 5G network repeater with 4x the power for increased range, optical extension, and other significant enhancements.
The second-generation Pivot combines a narrower beamwidth on the Donor unit with an increase in gain and a 7dB power boost on the Service Unit. The outcome is a system that can achieve Gigabit service at least 3,000 feet away from the gNB or 50 percent further. These improved capabilities enable mobile network operators (MNOs) to broaden the service area while significantly mitigating the impact of vegetation.
The range and utility of the repeater can be significantly expanded with the optical interface kit. This feature enables a Pivot donor unit to provide fiber optic cable for up to four service units. This can eliminate the need for line of sight at each outdoor installation location, allowing for more robust deployments with fewer systems. Additionally, fiber optics facilitates outdoor-to-indoor installations and huge indoor venues, such as stadiums and other areas traditionally served by DAS.
Steve Ostroff, Technical Product Manager at Pivotal Commware, shared, "The new Pivot provides ultra-low latency allowing a transparent integration into the network. Its low total power consumption helps streamline permitting operations. But it has more RF power, versatility, and intelligence," He added, "Our newest Pivot also offers enhanced network health monitoring, and a tighter beam profile to the gNB, reducing potential network interference."

Additionally, the new Pivot is easier and quicker to install. The new design features lesser cables and installation at the pole without using tools. The company will exhibit its next-generation Pivot 5G repeater from February 27 to March 2 at the 2023 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Hall 2, Stand 2D15.
