France's CELESTE Deploys Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport

CELESTE has selected Tellabs to exclusively provide its nationwide optical transport network across France. The broadband operator is deploying the Tellabs 7100 Nano Optical Transport System (OTS) to all major cities in France.

CELESTE is building a nationwide fiber optic network which will stretch over 4,000 kilometers around France. The network will extend its high-bandwidth services to new French regional markets and reach more enterprises. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"CELESTE's emergence as a nationwide competitor is a major revolution for the French broadband market," said Nicolas Aubé, President of CELESTE. "With this deployment, medium size enterprises across France can access competitively priced, high-bandwidth services quickly and easily. Tellabs' extensive knowledge and experience of international enterprise markets is an invaluable part of our success in this ambitious venture."
