AFL delivers scalability and affordability for central office applications

For scalability and affordability in central office applications, the largest telecommunications companies choose AFL as the single source for engineering specification design, material and installation of communication networks.

As telecommunications evolves and expands its offerings, the central office is more than just the origination point for voice calls. It is now the hub and host location that manages the processing systems for voice, data, bandwidth and video. While many central offices are transitioning to newer technologies, companies want to protect equipment and to make upgrades with no service interruptions. AFL's reputation as a reliable and a trusted partner originates from decades of experience as an industry leader.
