Add bandwidth and Ethernet/IP to existing networks

Rev up your SDH network to save costs and increase efficiency

Your customers are on Facebook, surfing the web and watching video on the move. The explosion of smartphones and other mobile devices challenges your existing SDH network but also presents new revenue opportunities.

Migrating to an IP/Ethernet platform enables you to manage increased traffic at lower cost, with carrier-class reliability. Your users will enjoy high-bandwidth services with high quality.

Tellabs can help you migrate to a packet environment cost-effectively. We offer flexible options to upgrade your existing network without forcing you to write off your existing SDH investments.

The Tellabs® 6300 Managed Transport System enables you to:

  • Deliver carrier-class differentiated services such as Ethernet Private Networks.
  • Offer a low-entry-cost metro and access transport platform.
  • Provide a flexible, scalable mobile network.

Tellabs® 6300 system benefits
