ADTRAN adds New Multiservice Access Routers to NetVanta family

ADTRAN today announced the introduction of the NetVanta 3400 Series of Multiservice Access Routers. The series delivers up to two T1s of wire-speed performance, even with advanced services like Firewall, Access Control Lists (ACLs) and IPSec Virtual Private Networking (VPN) enabled. I've always been a fan of ADTRAN's "all in one" networking solutions, which often give you not just a router, but PoE, firewall, VPN, built-in SIP server, CompactFlash for backup, and more. Back in May, I wrote about ADTRAN's 7100 IP-PBX, which I thought was one of the most comprehensive, plug-in-play, all-in-one IP-PBXs in the market. Similarly, I was impressed with ADTRAN's Total Access 900, which is also a comprehensive solution.

Well, the new NetVanta 3400 series includes the NetVanta 3448 and 3430, each a modular, 1U-high, rackmountable metal chassis that also follow Adtran's "all in one" model. These products are targeted at the Small and Medium Business (SMB) or enterprise applications requiring high-performance throughput for bandwidth-intensive applications. Each offers a single-slot to house any of the NetVanta Network Interface Modules (NIMs) for WAN access and Dial Backup Interface Modules (DIMs) for disaster recovery applications, two 10/100Base-T Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) interfaces that allow for broadband backup or DMZ, CompactFlash for configuration backup and storage of multiple firmware revisions, and support for up to 500 simultaneous VPN tunnels. Each is RoHS compliant making it ideal for both domestic and international applications.

The NetVanta 3448 includes the addition of a fully managed, non-blocking, eight-port 802.3af-compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switch delivering a full 15.4 watts of power per port. This allows you to power any PoE device, including security cameras, SIP phones, or wireless access points.

These products also offer a five-year warranty and free firmware upgrades for the life of the unit.

“As the demand for bandwidth-intensive applications continues to grow so does the need for greater throughput and processing speed,” said Rick Schansman, senior vice president and general manager, ADTRAN Enterprise Networks Division. “The NetVanta 3400 Series clearly addresses these needs by allowing businesses to fully utilize a complete arsenal of security and performance features without degrading throughput performance.”

The NetVanta 3430 has a list price of $895, while the NetVanta 3448 has a list price of $1,045. Both models are currently shipping. The Power over Ethernet option for the NetVanta 3448 has a list price of $345 and will be available in Q4. Enhanced VPN capabilities can be activated through a software upgrade for $395.
