Tellabs solutions help power the 2012 Olympic Games

The 2012 Olympic Games kick off today, and Tellabs will be at the center of all the action.

When Usain Bolt calls his family in Jamaica, when Michael Phelps tweets to his followers, or when Roger Federer checks the weather on his smartphone—it’s all going over Tellabs networks.

Nearly 9 million people will attend 34 venues across the United Kingdom to watch more than 10,000 athletes compete in the games. 21,000 members of the media will ensure that billions of people around the world can follow every event.  Media, spectators and athletes alike will be relying on their mobile phones throughout the games—and that’s where Tellabs comes in.

Tellabs has the privilege of carrying mobile traffic for multiple U.K. networks.

For months Tellabs teams in Europe have been preparing for the Games, working with our customers to ensure nothing is left to chance and that Tellabs is ready for anything. “Our customers and their customers are all relying on Tellabs during the Olympics and we cannot let them down,” says my colleague Tarcisio Ribeiro, Tellabs vice president, EMEA sales.

Rich Tatara, Tellabs vice president, global customer services, says, “The Olympics are a truly global event, and the global Tellabs team will rise to the challenge of supporting our U.K. customers while the whole world is watching.”

The Olympics is about hard work and dedication, and the Tellabs support team is going the extra mile to make the Olympics a success for our customers.
