NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Service providers can soon offer interactive, high-bandwidth services faster and more efficiently with Tellabs' new Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) capabilities. Tellabs is demonstrating these capabilities at the Tellabs booth (#27040) at GLOBALCOMM 2006.

Tellabs' GPON products deliver up to 2.4 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) downstream and up to 1.2 Gbps upstream. These speeds enable the delivery of high-quality bundled voice, video and data services as part of the Tellabs DynamicHome Solution.

"Video distribution is seen by many service providers as a competitive trump card," said Michael Arden, principal analyst, broadband and multimedia research, for ABI Research. "With its increased speed and ability to support advanced, interactive video services, GPON deployment is top of mind with service providers worldwide as they race to deploy next-generation Telco TV."

The Tellabs 8865 next-generation GPON optical line terminal (OLT) transforms carrier access networks. Based upon the hardware-centric architecture of the Tellabs 8800 multi-service router series, the Tellabs 8865 OLT pushes subscriber-centric, service-aware intelligence and quality-of-service (QOS) all the way to the home. The Tellabs 8865 OLT enables carriers to rapidly deploy, control and differentiate revenue-generating services like interactive video. With integrated service edge router functionality, multiple 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps uplinks, and support for nearly 4,000 GPON optical network terminals (ONTs), the Tellabs 8865 consolidates multiple network elements, improves network scalability and creates a foundation for continuous service evolution for high-bandwidth, high-density GPON applications.

With installation of a new GPON line module, the Tellabs 1000 multiservice access series offers simple and cost-effective migration to GPON from Broadband Passive Optical Network (BPON), Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) or Digital Loop Carrier (DLC) technologies. At the subscriber premises, the Tellabs 1600-712 GPON ONT supports residential voice, high-speed data, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and cable television in a single, cost-effective unit.

"Consumers and businesses demand more from the Internet," said Carl DeWilde, executive vice president of broadband products for Tellabs. "They want personalized, on-demand applications, greater entertainment choices and reliable data. As the market leader in PON and deep-fiber access solutions, service providers can count on Tellabs to help them meet these demands cost-effectively and reliably."
