LONDON -- Tellabs and Ericsson have extended their partnership with an agreement to integrate Ericsson's new generation MINI-LINK radio links with Tellabs' end-to-end network manager. This arrangement will enable mobile operators to use a single network management system across their entire network. Through an existing OEM agreement, Ericsson already sells the Tellabs 8100 managed access system and the Tellabs 6300 managed transport series as the Ericsson DXX 8000 Managed Access System, part of its mobile network solution enabling mobile operators to transport increasing capacity in the access portion of the network.

"Now we are further strengthening our trusted partnership with Ericsson, which goes back to 1994," said Anders Gustafsson, President, Tellabs International. "This is the proof of our commitment to the market and our ability to provide world-class bandwidth management solutions for mobile operators."

The Tellabs 8100 managed access system helps carriers introduce new services quickly and cost-effectively. It provisions a variety of business services over a high-capacity backbone network. It includes the Tellabs 8100 network manager, a powerful, real-time control software system that supports service innovation and differentiation, while lowering operational costs and enhancing profitability. The Tellabs 8100 system is currently in operation in more than 250 networks around the world.

The Tellabs 6300 managed transport series, a breakthrough next-generation synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) platform, enables network operators to deliver data efficiently and profitably through their existing transport platform.
