HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - -(September 19, 2006) - -ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN), a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment, today announced the introduction of the NetVanta 3100 Series of fixed -port IP access routers. These devices are designed to address the needs of SMBs for secure cost -effective Internet access and corporate connectivity using carrier -supplied broadband services such as DSL or cable.

The NetVanta 3100 Series consists of the NetVanta 3120 and NetVanta 3130. The NetVanta 3120 is a fixed -port Ethernet router with an integral four -port managed Ethernet switch, a single 10/100Base -T Ethernet WAN interface, and an analog modem for dial -backup or remote management. The NetVanta 3130 is a fixed -port ADSL access router with an integral four -port managed Ethernet switch, a single ADSL WAN interface, and an analog modem for dial -backup or remote management. In addition to ADSL and ADSL2, the NetVanta 3130 supports today's most advanced ADSL technology, ADSL2+, for applications with the ability to take advantage of its greater reach and higher bandwidth (up to 25Mbps).

Each of these devices offers a variety of standard features including: standards -based routing/switching protocols; stateful inspection firewall for network security; IPSec VPN for secure corporate connectivity across the Internet; a familiar Command Line Interface (CLI) that eliminates re -training of technical personnel; a user -friendly Web -based Graphical User Interface (GUI); NAT -compatible SIP ALG for VoIP applications; Quality of Service (QoS) for VoIP and other delay -sensitive applications; and an analog dial -backup interface for disaster recovery/mission critical applications or for remote management by the carrier.

"The NetVanta 3100 Series addresses the needs of our carrier customers for cost -effective, business -class routers that offer proven reliability and remote management capability," said Rick Schansman, senior vice president and general manager, ADTRAN Enterprise Networks Division. "SMBs benefit from versatile customer -premises devices that offer flexibility and security with a built -in switch, VPN for data protection, firewall for denial of service attacks, and dial backup for disaster recovery, all provided as a cost -effective, secure DSL/cable bundle from their carrier."

The NetVanta 3120 and 3130 are priced at $595 and $645 respectively, and are currently shipping.
