TalkTalk Business and ADTRAN Win GTB Innovation Award

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.
