I am particularly pleased to see our international business grow 42 percent over the previous quarter and 7 percent year-over-year, driven by stronger broadband access sales in Europe. I am also pleased with the continued growth in our services business which increased 35 percent over the previous quarter and grew 63 percent year-over-year as we execute on our leading market position in CAF II and vectoring solutions and services. We continue to believe that ADTRAN’s ability to help service providers grow revenue, reduce costs, accelerate buildout and transition to a software-defined access network is proving to be a catalyst for change within the industry.”
