3 reasons why an innovative service provider in the Northwest leverages Tellabs 1000 MSAP

Again and again, we see our major North American telco customers enhance their revenue generating portfolio by optimizing their current Tellabs 1000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP), allowing them to minimize costs, resources and time to market.

Our latest user case, from the Pacific Northwest region, showcases the flexibility that the Tellabs 1000 MSAP offers competitive service providers with inherited, mixed copper and fiber networks. This contemporary communications company has acquired network infrastructure from traditional telco network operators. These acquisitions come with requirements to provide legacy services such as T1, ISDN and POTS, but with the clear intention of delivering world-class user experience for both residential and business customers. The plan is to offer the most advanced fiber network that combines speed, reliability and superior customer service – all of which can be accomplished from their Tellabs 1000 embedded base.

The Tellabs 1000 is the ideal choice for:

  1. Maximizing the existing copper plant
  2. Strategically expanding fiber plant
  3. Delivering all possible services over both copper and fiber simultaneously

And, here’s how it’s done –

The Tellabs 1000 MSAP can be used for high speed internet over copper where there’s no fiber distribution facilities. This allows the new communications company to leverage the existing copper plant to maximizing the Tellabs 1000 connectivity options for DSL, while strategically growing the new fiber deployments. Supporting all legacy narrowband connectivity requirements also helps optimize revenue too.

Where fiber is available, Tellabs offers solutions to selectivity deliver optical connectivity to businesses and fiber to the homes. These fiber-based ultra-high-speed services can be efficiently provided to both residential and business subscribers using either G-PON and/or 10G XGS-PON solutions.

The key to success for this Northwest-based service provider is being able to deliver all of these services (e.g., pay phone, ISDN, T1, VDSL2, Gigabit Ethernet, 10G Ethernet and POTS) from operationalized access network equipment they already own. The Tellabs 1000 MSAP does exactly that for them. Even better yet, these Tellabs 1000 systems are stable, secure, scalable and simple.  They provide flexible deployment, broad offerings, and the highest capacity services at the lowest first time and total ownership costs.
