BOCA RATON, FL, January 25, 2008 - -


The Tolly Group, the industry's premiere independent testing and strategic consulting organization, announced today that it has awarded the company's coveted First & Foremost certification to the ADTRAN NetVanta 1335 Multiservice Access Router.

The NetVanta 1335 represents the first multiservice access router examined by The Tolly Group to integrate wired and wireless services into a single multiservices platform. The Tolly Group's hands -on evaluation of the NetVanta 1335 shows that the device integrates an access router, wireless access point, Layer 2 and Layer 3 Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch, firewall, and VPN capabilities in one platform.

"The complexity of network appliances and the performance and security demands of today's applications compel small - to medium -sized businesses (SMBs) and branch office network managers to deploy a device that consolidates multiple functions into a single managed platform," said Kevin Tolly, president/CEO/founder of The Tolly Group. "Such a multipurpose solution must provide key functionality, embrace security and seamlessly support converged applications to deliver the required performance and reduce network costs."

Some of the chief findings of the report show that the NetVanta 1335:

• Achieves wire -speed bidirectional WAN throughput for packet sizes of 256 bytes or greater when tested across a single T1 PPP link with QoS and stateful inspection firewall enabled

• Achieves wire -speed throughput at Layer 2/3 on 24 Fast Ethernet ports in a full -mesh configuration

• Delivers theoretical maximum throughput for 802.11a/b/g wireless LANs, respectively

• Provides toll -quality VoIP using QoS in an oversubscription network scenario
