Canby Telcom and ADTRAN Connect to Deploy First Gigabit Community in Pacific Northwest
|By Business Wire
|August 18, 2014 08:30 AM EDT
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
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
“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.”
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.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
