HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- May 08, 2012

ADTRAN^®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation
networking solutions, today announced its Ultra Broadband Ethernet (UBE)
services delivery solution has been awarded “Best Fixed Access Product” by
Terrapinn’s 2012 World Vendor Awards. ADTRAN’s UBE was recognized for its
innovative, unique and commercially-compelling ability to address the needs of
the booming fixed broadband market worldwide. The solution’s revolutionary
architecture enables service providers to quickly and affordably deliver the
most advanced, high-bandwidth broadband services across the entire network.
ADTRAN was honored Thursday, April 26, 2012 at the 2012 World Vendor Awards
Gala Dinner in London.

The 2012 World Vendor Awards recognize excellence amongst the vendor
community, focusing on telecommunications hardware, software and solutions
that are fundamental in driving the advancement of global communications. The
global winners were ultimately judged for industry impact on addressable
markets, innovation, commercial benefits, as well as ease-of-deployment and
compatibility with existing equipment and solutions.

The ADTRAN UBE architecture was uniquely developed in close cooperation with
Tier 1 carriers in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America to deliver
a unique ultra-high performance FTTH option. By driving fiber to the
Distribution Point (DP), UBE allows operators to deliver broadband Ethernet
over existing subscriber drops, dramatically reducing the cost and time
associated with deploying FTTH in high-cost locations like MDUs or areas with
buried cable plant without sacrificing performance. Additionally, UBE’s
ultra-low power consumption enables it to leverage distributed power from the
homes it serves instead of complicated and expensive network sourced
powering—a capability that is unique to ADTRAN and a first in the market.

“In order to remain successful and competitive in the marketplace, service
providers around the world are seeking to accommodate new and exciting
high-bandwidth services and applications.Traditional FTTH has been a
successful solution for some, but limits availability in many serving areas
due to cost and deployment time constraints,” said Jay Wilson, general manager
for ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. “UBE offers service providers a
flexible, scalable and cost-effective complement to deploy an advanced,
next-generation hybrid FTTH network where revenue-generating services can be
turned up in days, compared to weeks or months.”
