ADTRAN provides this information to our customers because of our commitment to total quality and customer satisfaction.

Third-Party Pluggable Optics in ADTRAN Products

To protect our customers and their networks from potentially detrimental effects caused by non-ADTRAN optics, ADTRAN products provide the indications and alarms described below.

ADTRAN's qualification of optical products is improved continuously due to our adherence to internal quality practices. Most optical qualifications do not pass our standards on the first attempt and result in improvements via multiple hardware revisions or working with our component suppliers for more durable manufacturing processes.
