    Understanding ADTRAN Serial Numbers

     

    After finding your serial number you can enter it in the ADTRAN Serial Number Lookup Tool to view: 

    • warranty expiration date
    • part number, product name and revision
    • system serial number (if applicable)
    • component serial and part numbers (if applicable)

     

    NOTE: UC license keys and some Polycom MAC addresses will not display warranty information.

    Bluesocket


    The vWLAN virtual appliance does not have a serial number. Methods to obtain other Bluesocket equipment is shown below. The vWLAN is not a Bluesocket Controller.


    vWLAN Hardware Appliance

     

    The vWLAN Hardware Appliace serial number is listed on the top of the physical server. There are two unique serial numbers, however, only one is used by Adtran. The correct serial number will start with a number (as opposed to a letter) as outlined in the following image.

    vwlan-appliance-serial.png

     

    Bluesocket Access Point


    Bluesocket Access Points' serial numbers are 14 numeric digits. There are numerous screens within the vWLAN web admin which will display the access point serial numbers, but the best screen to look at is the Configuration> Wireless> AP Licenses screen. This way it is possible to verify the serial as well as the AP's license.

    bsap-serial.png

     

    The serial number can also be found on the back of each physical access point. Examples are shown below:

     

    bsap-serial-physical1802.png
    bsap-serial-physical1840.png
    bsap-serial-physical1935.png

     

     

    Bluesocket Controller


    The Bluesocket Controller serial number can be found in the web admin UI (Maintenance> Upgrade) or on the physical unit directly above the power supply.

    TA 900/900E


    The process to obtain a serial number from a Total Access products is the same as the Netvanta process.

     

    TA 5000

     

    The serial number of a Total Access 5000 component can be found with the show version 1/x command, where x is replaced with the appropriate card number.  For example, show version 1/10:

                        image5.png

        • 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:

    Understanding ADTRAN Serial Numbers


    This section describes the different formats used on ADTRAN products for the purpose of identification.

     

    Format used prior to 2000

    image1.png

    In this example, the following information can be determined when reading the serial number label from left to right:

    • Hardware Revision of Product – “N”
    • Year Manufactured – “6” = 1996
    • Week of Year Manufactured – “51”
    • Incrementing Identifier – “B6607”
    Format used after 2000 and limited use today
      image2.pngIn this example, the following information can be determined when reading  the serial number label from left to right:
    • Hardware Revision of product – “A”
    • Year Manufactured – “G” = 2006
    • Week of Year Manufactured – “33”
    • Incrementing identifier – “D4104”
    Note that the letter indicating the year manufactured starts in 2000 with the letter “A”.
    Telcordia Format
    image3.pngIn this example, the following information can be determined when reading  the serial number label from left to right:
    • Hardware Revision of product – “A”
    • Issuing Agency (Telcordia)  = “LB”
    • ADTRAN’s Company ID = “ADTN”
    • Year Manufactured – “09” = 2009
    • Week of Year Manufactured – “40”
    • Incrementing identifier – “AD166”
    System Serial Numbers
    image4.pngThis serial number format is used to represent a group of serial numbers within a configured bundle.  The following information can be determined from the serial number label:
    • System Prefix – “CFG”
    • Incrementing Identifier – “0796122”

     

    Note that the “CFG” format serial number is required for RMA purposes on Total Access 900 and Total Access 600 Series products.

    Polycom MAC Address/Serial Number Format

    image5.png

    Polycom IP Phones purchased via ADTRAN prior to December 2010 could be labeled with the format mentioned above as “used after 2000”.

      image6.png

    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.
