Frontier Expands ROADM Network with Tellabs

Frontier Communications has deployed approximately 345 Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) systems to enhance optical network flexibility and manageability and improve the customer experience. By mid-year Frontier will have added more than 6,500 miles of ROADM network. The dynamic optical network being deployed is based on Tellabs Optical Solutions, including the Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System and the Tellabs 7100 Nano Optical Transport System.

Frontier's Packet-Optical Transport Network can now deliver more than 30 different types of residential or business services such as Ethernet (Fiber to the Office or Cell Site), Session Internet Protocol (SIP) trunking, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Dedicated Internet Access Services (DIA).http://www.frontier.com
