How to open a case with Product Support


This guide outlines how to use ADTRAN’s web portal to perform the following tasks:

  • Open a New Support Case
  • Check Support Case Status or Update a Case

NOTE: EMEA Care Customers should follow instructions provided in the ADTRAN Service and Support Guide provided and disregard the following content.

Before You Begin

For urgent, service-affecting issues we require that you call ADTRAN Customer Care at 888-423-8726 to open a case.

Having details on hand when opening a case will expedite the processFor a support case, it’s important to know the specific product for which you need assistance. For example, if voice service is not working on a Total Access 5000 module, entering the module type (CPOTS, RPOTS, VDSL Combo, etc.) and basic configuration (GR-303, SIP, MGCP, etc.) will send your case to the engineer qualified to provide support on that technology.  Not providing details may require additional questions and case handoffs before help begins.


Details for a Support Case

  • Specific product type – model or card name/ model number.  Providing the serial number of the product is best.  Use this link for tips on finding your serial number.
  • Basic configuration
  • Service Plan Number (required for delivery of contracted SLA)
  • Remote access to the equipment
  • Troubleshooting steps that you've attempted so far
