ADTRAN, Inc. is a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment, with a portfolio of intelligent solutions deployed by some of the world’s largest service providers, distributed enterprises and small and medium-sized businesses. ADTRAN solutions enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across copper, fiber and wireless network infrastructures.
Headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, with sales offices strategically located throughout the United States and around the world, ADTRAN’s mission is to be a trusted provider of global communications solutions, to develop innovative technologies used to create products and services that make communications simpler and more affordable for people everywhere, and to foster an entrepreneurial environment supported by enthusiastic employees who exhibit an unwavering commitment to personal integrity and support our customers beyond their expectations.
The company’s success stems from its history in telecommunications. Incorporated in 1985, ADTRAN began operations in 1986 following AT&T’s divestiture of the Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs). This created an opportunity for companies such as ADTRAN to supply network equipment to the seven RBOCs as well as the more than 1,300 independent telephone companies in the United States.
