Tellabs Shows its Latest MSPP

Tellabs introduced a compact, fully-featured multiservice provisioning platform (MSPP) that evolved from its 6325 Edge Node. The new Tellabs 6335 Switch Node shares common modules with the Tellabs 6325 node, yet has more slots for better capital and operational expense savings versus stacking multiple nodes.

Key features of the Tellabs 6335 node include:

  • Is a dual-purpose platform that works both as an MSPP as well as a WDM transport solution. Operators can mix MSPP and WDM simultaneously in the same universal shelf and reap the benefits of seamless capacity upgrade from single channel to multichannel networks.

  • Supports 16 wavelengths complemented by a suite of muxponders, transponders and wavelength sensitive filters fulfilling the needs of metro-edge applications.

  • Features a compact, modular design with two sizes, a two-rack and a seven-rack unit, that fit well in metro and core networks and customer locations and reduce power consumption.

  • Supports 2G and 3G mobile transport services for efficient mobile backhaul.

  • Offers higher flexibility and availability required in highly competitive markets.

The new Tellabs 6335 node will be available in the first quarter of 2009.
