Adtran has nearly two thousand products in its catalog and is in a good position to tell us where the business hot spots are.
I just had a conversation with Chris Thompson and Tammie Dodson at the company regarding the bright spots in their business and they tell me the optical side is doing well, partially because of the broadband stimulus activity which carriers are seeing. They expect this to continue as more details come out regarding this initiative.
Also they say their VoIP gateway business is strong as a result of companies exploring the cost cutting benefits of SIP trunking. They think there needs to be more education in the market about SIP trunking and we agreed there seems to be more of it every day.
