  • Earlier this month, citing economic reasons, Tellabs announced that it will discontinue current GPON activities focused on Verizon. Tellabs said the decision serves the best interests of both companies and their respective stakeholders. It will continue to be a multi-product and services supplier to Verizon. Tellabs also noted that it will continue its current access strategy, including BPON and GPON.
