Canby Telcom and ADTRAN Connect to Deploy First Gigabit Community in Pacific Northwest

ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced as part of its Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program, that it is enabling Canby Telcom to deliver Gigabit services to the town of Canby, Oregon. Canby, located southeast of Portland, is turning to Gigabit services to attract large brand name and high-tech corporations to the area. With the deployment of ADTRAN’s advanced Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) portfolio, Canby Telcom is helping the town become one of the first Gigabit communities in the region by providing the technology infrastructure needed to effectively support growing business opportunities. Through ultra-fast broadband speeds both existing businesses and those looking to relocate to Canby can now easily connect to the global economy, creating more jobs and supporting long-term growth for the area.

“Gigabit Internet service is an exciting development for the city and will set the community apart by making Canby a more attractive, future-proof location for manufacturers and businesses today. Faster Internet supersedes proximity and in many cases allows education and business to be conducted from any location – and Canby can now be that location,” said Renate Mengelberg, economic development director with the City of Canby. “That is a game-changer for attracting new industry and jobs to the city. This development is a tremendous asset to existing businesses, education and the overall community economic health by retaining local jobs and attracting even more industries and new job opportunities to our town.”

Canby Telcom has developed a reputation as a forward-thinking service provider in the region and has remained ahead of the innovation curve by being the first to bring advanced technologies to the local community. As an early adopter of FTTH infrastructure, Canby Telcom has spearheaded multiple cutting-edge technology projects – including developing an over-the-top (OTT) video streaming service – to better assist the growing needs of local residents and business owners. Through its involvement with the local economic development committee, Canby Telcom has also seen firsthand a continual increase in demand for higher broadband speeds and is addressing this need through its Gigabit fiber infrastructure.

ADTRAN’s Gigabit portfolio, including the Total Access® 5004, has enabled Canby Telcom to be among the first to deliver next-generation Gigabit services to more than 2,500 local residents and businesses. Since launching Gigabit Internet as part of its Fiber Optic Zone (FOz) service, the community has experienced an immediate positive economic impact. For example, real estate agents have seen a marked increase in homebuyers selecting Canby properties due to fiber access. Likewise, businesses are benefiting from a reliable, high-capacity connection to larger cities, enabling Canby to retain its small town charm while offering big city connectivity.

“By being one of the first Gigabit communities in the Pacific Northwest, we’re accomplishing our goals of not only bettering the lives of our residents, but setting the foundation for future technology innovation within our community,” said Paul Hauer, president of Canby Telcom. “ADTRAN is enabling us to deliver the Gigabit services we need to provide the capacity and speed that bandwidth-hungry devices and streaming video services are demanding today, as well as scalability for the gadgets and services yet to come. It’s now easier than ever for high-tech businesses or global corporations to come to Canby and enjoy the benefits of small town America while having all the advantages of a big city.”

“Canby Telcom has continuously proven that it is innovative and tech-driven when it comes to meeting the needs of its community. Its commitment to understanding the evolving market and anticipating customer demand has allowed it to be a leader in Gigabit services delivery and creates new opportunities for its customers,” said Mitch Fleming, regional vice president, sales, ADTRAN Carrier Networks Division. “Canby is an excellent example of the role service providers can play in creating a new economic future for their communities.”

ADTRAN’s Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program showcases how innovative technologies are being used in cities, towns and communities across the country to support economic growth, urban redevelopment, educational and municipal service support, and innovative residential service delivery. These communities are using ADTRAN’s world-class Gigabit broadband, Wi-Fi and Cloud service offerings to re-invigorate downtown business and residential districts, connect classrooms with other learning centers around the world, and help attract new companies seeking to relocate out of crowded urban centers.
