“As market demands transition towards multigigabit services, seamless and robust Wi-Fi is becoming increasingly vital. With our SDG 8600 and 8700 Series, we’re taking speed to the next level and delivering a superior Wi-Fi experience, all while ensuring homeowners enjoy a streamlined and unobtrusive setup free from unsightly network equipment. This means Wi-Fi devices can be placed prominently, resulting in no more dead spots and no more dropped signals. So whether you’re streaming, gaming or on an important video call, you can be sure of uninterrupted connectivity throughout the home,” said Eric Presworsky, GM of residential solutions at Adtran. “For operators, our new SDGs offer a unique opportunity. Not only can they provide an unbeatable Wi-Fi experience, but they also unlock new avenues for revenue generation with differentiated services and applications, from IoT security to parental controls. This translates to increased customer loyalty and a concrete path to business growth.”

The SDG 8600 and 8700 Series underscore Adtran’s dedication to superior in-home Wi-Fi and environmental responsibility. Featuring at least 4x4 radios across all bands, they ensure households are ready for current and future wireless demands. They provide consistent multigigabit service rates, achieving up to 10Gbits/s across both wireless and wired connections. Certain models also feature 10G LAN and WAN interfaces, addressing the needs of those seeking top-tier connectivity solutions. With next-generation ARM processors, the SDG 8600 and 8700 Series can handle more than 250 devices, providing comprehensive reach and robust signal quality.

The USB-C-powered gateways are 60% more compact than comparable carrier-grade mesh Wi-Fi systems, requiring less packaging and making them more efficient to ship. They also use intelligent power-scaling technology to reduce power consumption by up to 80% during off-peak times. What’s more, the SDG 8600 and 8700 Series support both Adtran’s Intellifi® and Plume’s OpenSync managed Wi-Fi platforms, enabling operators to deliver a seamless Wi-Fienvironment and unlock in-home opportunities.

“Operators face a dual challenge: meeting the skyrocketing data demands of households while also maximizing their operational and revenue potential. Our SDG 8600 and 8700 Series are the answer. These devices offer the tools necessary to consistently deliver robust Wi-Fi services, and their capabilities pave the way for new revenue-generating opportunities, including gaming modes, application prioritization and more,” commented Christoph Glingener, CTO of Adtran. “One highlight of our new SDGs is the integration of advanced 4x4 streams across all bands, which increases bandwidth and broadens coverage. Another is the synergy between the devices and our Intellifi® management software. This combination creates an optimized mesh Wi-Fi landscape that responds to the evolving demands of households while also offering the visibility operators need to stay one step ahead.”

Further information on Adtran’s SDG 8600 and 8700 Series is available in these slides.
