NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Tellabs (Nasdaq: TLAB) introduced a new scalable, high-density transport switch that helps network operators build robust, flexible metro optical networks and quickly deliver new business services. The ultra-compact Tellabs 6350 transport switch enables operators to cost-effectively manage their backbone traffic in metro and regional networks. In addition, the Tellabs 6350 transport switch offers a "pay as your grow" model that enables service providers to increase network capacity and instantly provision new services -- when needed -- to lower initial capital investments. "Tellabs introduces new products that help our customers grow their networks more easily and with minimal capital outlay," said Peter Viereck, vice president and general manager of Tellabs in Denmark. "Our new Tellabs 6350 transport switch meets our customers' increasing demand for switching of traffic and it complements our optical transport systems that are used to build cost-effective metro optical networks." The Tellabs 6350 transport switch is a flexible and adaptive multi-service platform that delivers voice services from 2 Mbps and higher, leased line services and new value-added data services such as high-speed Ethernet. With its high density and cost effectiveness, the 4/4/1 cross-connect can be deployed at the very edge of the network, optimizing network efficiency and minimizing operating costs from floor space to power consumption. One single rack of equipment can handle more than 1 million simultaneous phone calls and Internet sessions.Tellabs Inc.
