Understanding ADTRAN Serial Numbers


ADTRAN serial numbers are used to identify manufacture and warranty dates of ADTRAN products.  This document describes the different formats used on ADTRAN products for the purpose of identification.

Information regarding Warranty by product is available here: http://www.adtran.com/warranty. Support documentation for current and discontinued products is also available at https://supportforums.adtran.com.

Polycom IP Phones purchased via ADTRAN after December 2010 may contain no ADTRAN serial number.  In this case, the Polycom MAC address is used as the serial number for warranty purposes.
