NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Imagine planning a road improvement project where traffic must keep moving and changing lanes freely without detours. Now, you need to add millions more cars. And the budget is tight. That's the challenge service providers face while upgrading to next-generation networks to meet users' growing demand for bandwidth.

The new Tellabs 6335 Switch Node puts mobile and fixed operators in the driver's seat. By flexibly managing multiple traffic types, the Tellabs 6335 node optimizes network capacity. Service providers continue to benefit from existing network investments without sacrificing reliability or performance. And they can add next-generation services when the time is right.

Moving at the right pace in a flexible manner

The Tellabs 6335 node is a compact yet fully-featured multiservice provisioning platform (MSPP) that evolved from the successful Tellabs® 6325 Edge Node. It shares common modules with the Tellabs 6325 node, yet has more slots for better capital and operational expense savings versus stacking multiple nodes. Increasing capacity while keeping overall size compact enables the Tellabs 6335 node to fit into a wide range of applications and networks, making it easier for service providers to move at their own pace and get more out of networks already serving customers.

The Tellabs 6335 node:

  • Is a dual-purpose platform that works both as an MSPP as well as a WDM transport solution. Operators can mix MSPP and WDM simultaneously in the same universal shelf and reap the benefits of seamless capacity upgrade from single channel to multichannel networks.

  • Supports 16 wavelengths complemented by a suite of muxponders, transponders and wavelength sensitive filters fulfilling the needs of metro-edge applications.

  • Features a compact, modular design with two sizes, a two-rack and a seven- rack unit, that fit well in metro and core networks and customer locations and reduce power consumption.

  • Supports 2G and 3G mobile transport services for efficient mobile backhaul.

  • Offers higher flexibility and availability required in highly competitive markets.

"We designed the compact Tellabs 6335 node to meet the performance requirements of demanding, competitive markets in a flexible, cost-efficient way," said Mark Pashan, vice president and general manager of optical transport products for Tellabs. "Building on the success of the Tellabs 6325 edge node, the Tellabs 6335 node is capable of even more. The road to next-generation services is now much smoother for operators who want to take full advantage of existing investments and move to packet-based networks at their own pace."
