Wireless Access Points (WAPs) from ADTRAN are PoE capable; have the ability to segment wireless networks through the use of Virtual Access Points (VAPs); and can disable SSID broadcasts. The enhanced security features combined with ease of use and ease of management make WLAN perfect for businesses of all sizes.

Network Security

The NetVanta Series of Ethernet Switches provides a stringent line of defense against common security threats. The security portfolio features Network Access Control (NAC), support for 802.1Q trunking for VLANs to allow network managers to segregate traffic, and enhance networking performance. NetVanta Switches include MAC-based port security, multi-level user passwords, Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for encrypted user login, and Access Authentication and Authorization (AAA) for authentication with a RADIUS, RSA SecurID and TACACS+.

Power Conservation

The telecommunications industry is embracing the move to "green" technology with the establishment of new standards that will revolutionize the industry. As networks continue the transition to all-IP architectures, and the demand for bandwidth continues to increase, the need for energy-efficient power consumption and "green" technologies will hold an even greater role. NetVanta Switches offer several ways to conserve on power. They efficiently deploy only the needed power to a device and also offer the ability to schedule a port to be activated and deactivated based on time-of-day. This conserves on power usage and utility costs.


Netvanta switch solutions offer a low initial investment, coupled with simplified installation, configuration and management without sacrificing functionality or reliability. Netvanta solutions significantly lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and improve Return on Investment (ROI). These full-featured solutions are priced free of hidden charges, such as mandatory maintenance agreements and costly firmware downloads. In addition, they are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and unlimited toll-free technical support.
