Tellabs Adds GigE Card to its Tellabs 1000 Multiservice Access Series

Tellabs has added a new Gigabit Ethernet card to its Tellabs 1000 multiservice access platform, enabling service providers to migrate their DSL and PON-based networks to IP by replacing older ATM switches with Ethernet infrastructure.

BEK Communications, a telecommunications cooperative serving 6,000 customers in south central North Dakota, is among the first service providers to trial the Gigabit Ethernet card. A long-time user of the Tellabs 1000 series, BEK will use the card to deploy IPTV in mid-2007.
