Tellabs Offers Ethernet Upgrade for Remote Subscriber Terminals

Tellabs announced a new Feature Package 14 for its Tellabs 1000 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP). The upgrade helps service providers lower costs and speeds time to market for IP/Ethernet transport and services. Tellabs noted that it has more than 84,000 Tellabs 1000 Remote Subscriber Terminals (RSTs) installed in North America. The Ethernet upgrade does not require infrastructure changes, eliminating the "rip-and-replace" approach. It enables service providers to continue delivering profitable traditional services as they add next-generation high-speed Ethernet and IP services via an end-to-end Ethernet access platform.
