Tellabs Passes JITC Certification for 40G Packet Optical Transport

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) has certified the Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System and the Tellabs 7100 Nano Optical Transport System. These products integrate SONET/SDH, native Ethernet switching and ROADM-based DWDM technology.

The DoD plans to deploy optical LANs and packet optical networks worldwide to modernize military bases, deliver real-time battlefield imagery and secure mission-critical defense communications. The DoD recently approved a number of Tellabs optical networking and enterprise GPON products.

"No one puts mission-critical telecom equipment through tougher tests than the U.S. Department of Defense. Tellabs' products are the first and only optical LAN and packet optical transport with 40G to pass DoD's stringent testing and achieve JITC certification," said Joe Shilgalis, vice president for Tellabs Government Systems.

As the first JITC-certified packet optical transport system, the Tellabs 7100 system extends the optical LAN from the enterprise GPON network towards the data core by providing efficient Layer 2 aggregation, while offering virtually unlimited bandwidth with WDM technology. SONET traffic can be converged onto the same Tellabs 7100 system using a separate wavelength, instead of a completely separate network. The Tellabs 7100 Nano system, a right fit for the majority of DoD agencies' locations with limited space and high bandwidth requirements, offers similar capabilities in a more compact footprint with lower power consumption.
