Lothian Broadband Helps Close the Scottish Fibre Gap with Turnkey Network from Adtran

We are proud to announce that we have chosen Adtran, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation multi-gigabit fibre access and fibre extension solutions to design and build a new core network for our end-to-end fibre broadband solution. The resulting multi-gigabit-capable fibre broadband network delivers voice, video and internet services to residents and businesses in underserved regions of Scotland.

Adtran is using its multi-gigabit XGS-PON access technology and its technology partners for the core network build and is working to connect this new network to regional transit providers allowing Lothian Broadband to scale FTTP services across areas of Scotland that have been left underserved by other commercial fibre rollouts. Lothian Broadband maintains a target premise yield of 99% to ensure every community is connected to reliable Gigabit broadband, not just the areas that are easy to reach.

“When we made the decision to transition from fixed wireless access to fibre, the only choice was Adtran. The company offers industry-leading platforms and professional services for core network design, access network migration and transit provider management,”

said Gavin Rogers, CEO at Lothian Broadband.

“Pairing its FTTP technology with Juniper’s core network infrastructure, Adtran is creating a complete end-to-end solution for us that can scale to meet our rapid build plans. Our new fibre network will ultimately allow us to become the broadband leader and allowing the communities we service to be connected to new digital applications and economic opportunities.”

The Adtran end-to-end fibre broadband solution includes the Adtran 10G fibre access platform with XGS-PON technology and Adtran’s cloud software. XGS-PON technology will enable Lothian Broadband to build a scalable fibre access network to support customers’ capacity demands today and in the future. The cloud software supports an AI-driven, adaptive Wi-Fi management solution that allows Lothian Broadband to simplify its customer care and ensure all customer devices have continuous high-speed connectivity.

“Service providers across the UK are deploying our end-to-end fibre solution because it makes it easy to reach every community and deliver the benefits of multi-gigabit broadband,

said Stuart Broome, Vice President of Sales, EMEA, at Adtran.

“For Lothian Broadband, that means quickly expanding its fibre network and connecting new customers to multi-gigabit speeds. Our solution also guarantees best-in-class customer experience. This will provide both Lothian Broadband and its customers the peace of mind their network will support their needs well into the future.”
