CDCA Defense Summit 2019

Charleston Defense Contractors Association (CDCA) Defense Summit is a premier military event, and Tellabs, along with Network Runners, will be there leading conversations concerning how Passive Optical LAN can improve cyber security and the cyber hardening of both defense and civilian networks.


CDCA Defense Summit will be held in Charleston, South Carolina, on December 11th through 12th, 2019. Tellabs and Network Runners (booth 105) will partner together to showcase military-grade network solutions that improve IT physical infrastructure defensibility.


Tellabs Optical LAN government solutions play vital roles in providing a more secure network inside buildings and across extended campus, enabling security policies and procedures to be implemented consistently, with fewer human errors and across a more reliable network. Furthermore, Passive Optical LAN has the distinction of being one of the technologies offering promise to US Department of Defense as stated in the DoD Digital Modernization Strategy Plan for FY19-23, because it offers:

  • Lower network infrastructure, operational and maintenance costs
  • Saves space with smaller, higher-capacity, single mode fiber cable
  • Extends high-speed connectivity further (>20 kilometers)
  • And, fiber cabling is far more secure than copper cabling

Network Runners can now provide Tellabs solutions to Federal government agencies and organizations through its Women Owned, Small Disadvantaged business contracts and can provide tailored and scalable integration solutions through its Seaport NxG, GSA 8(a) STARS II, GSA Schedule 70, and GSA PSS (Professional Services Schedule) contracts.  Network Runners’ IT systems integration capabilities can help ensure that agencies and organizations can quickly implement and realize the benefits of secure networks with lower infrastructure, operational and maintenance costs.


Tellabs and Network Runners will also be joined in booth 105 by:

  • Network Policy Orchestration and Automation Solution –Tufin
  • IP Cloaking/Zero-Trust Security Solution – Blackridge
  • Data Analytics Platform for Actionable Intelligence – Alteryx
