ADTRAN Sets Bar for Global Quality with Expanded TL 9000 Certification

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced the expansion of its TL 9000 Certification across facilities and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) product categories. The TL 9000 Quality Management System (QMS) standardization has now been achieved for four design and operations locations in Germany, as well as the hiX 5600 product portfolio and the Access Integrator Ethernet (ACI-E) service management platform. ADTRAN has also been recognized with recertification for sixteen current product categories from its Enterprise and Carrier Networks divisions.

With accelerated growth in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) market, ADTRAN took steps to ensure that its processes and products serving regions around the globe meet the same high quality requirements for design, development, production, delivery and service across ADTRAN’s entire solution portfolios. The addition of the German facilities in Berlin, Munich, Bruchsal and Greifswald brings the total to nine global operations centers that have successfully been certified as part of ADTRAN’s multi-site registration.

“The TL 9000 certification recognizes the best of industry vendors in terms of overall hardware, software and services quality. The systematic and repeatable framework at the foundation of the certification is instrumental for companies as they look to increase global productivity, optimize resources, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction,” said Fraser Pajak, CEO of QuEST. “For vendors such as ADTRAN, expanding the certification showcases its innovation and dedication to ensuring a high standard of quality for its products and services. With the certification, ADTRAN customers can rest assured knowing the company is taking the necessary steps to meet their demands for satisfaction and performance.”

“As one of the world’s leading broadband solutions suppliers, we view our commitment to quality to all of our customers as our first priority,” said Dr. Eduard Scheiterer, managing director of ADTRAN GmbH. “The expansion of the TL9000 certification to include our EMEA focused products and processes, as well as the recertification of our existing TL9000 Management system, gives our partners and suppliers the assurance of top-quality hardware, software and services.”

Developed in 1998 by the Quality of Excellence for Suppliers of Telecommunications (QuEST) Forum, TL 9000 is a QMS built on an ISO 9001:2008 standard, the only standard in its family that is qualified to setting the criteria for the processes, procedures and tools that make up various certifications, and eight quality principles. Building on the ISO standard, the TL 9000 standard includes supplemental requirements, including performance measurements based on the product reliability, software development life-cycle management, requirements for specialized service functions, requirements to address communication between network operators and suppliers, as well as reporting of quality measurement data to a central warehouse. The resulting two-part system contains management and measurement components, including telecom-specific requirements on all registrations, hardware and software, service registrations and measurements that apply in all product categories and apply in certain product categories specific to hardware, software and/or services.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
