ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) today announced that its project with TalkTalk Business, which utilised ADTRAN’s NetVanta 6310 IP Business Gateways, was among the winners at the Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards. The two companies were awarded the Fixed Network Infrastructure Innovation Award at the event held at the exclusive Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London on 14th May 2014.
A panel of industry judges from the highest levels of the telecoms profession reviewed the entries submitted for this year’s awards. The project was acknowledged for its ability to save customers an average of 50 percent compared to equivalent competitive ISDN30 services. This ground-breaking achievement is a result of the NetVanta 6310 IP Business Gateway being specifically designed to provide a seamless migration path towards scalable IP communications. The solution combines robust routing and gateway features together into one multifunction platform, streamlining support for advanced data and voice services.
The investment in ADTRAN supports TalkTalk Business’ promise to customers for minimal disruption during upgrades and for hybrid flexibility in ISDN and SIP trunk interfaces. This commitment complements the performance and built-in service continuity of TalkTalk Business’ all-IP, next-generation network. Through its session border controller feature, the NetVanta 6310 connects to a combination of IP PBX and analogue faxes, telephones or modems. This ensures that TalkTalk Business’ service is compatible with all leading brands of PBX technology, allowing its customers to retain existing equipment.
“It’s an honour to be recognised by the Global Telecoms Business judges for this innovative project,” said Chris Kendall, business development director for ADTRAN. “The NetVanta 6310 IP Business Gateway is designed to provide growing enterprises with robust and flexible communications, enabling TalkTalk Business to strengthen its customer promise. With services like IP-ISDN30, TalkTalk Business is well-positioned in the telecoms market to target even bigger competitors that currently offer far less flexibility for higher cost.”
“This is a fantastic result for TalkTalk Business, and yet another indication of our determination to provide customers with great value products and services,” says Jon Nowell, head of product management for TalkTalk Business. “While more businesses make the switch from ISDN30 to SIP trunking, many are still keen to retain their existing PBX systems. Our network reach, continuous innovation and strong partnership with ADTRAN makes this possible. This not only saves the customer money, but better prepares them for the switch to a fully-fledged SIP phone system and allows them to scale as—and when—their business requires.”
The Global Telecoms Business Innovation awards are widely recognised across the industry and celebrate the work that vendors and operators do to develop innovative projects that better serve the industry’s end customers.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
