How Service Providers benefit from the Tellabs 1000 VDSL2 card

Tellabs 1000 MSAP

Our network operator customers are facing tough challenges ahead.  These include meeting increased bandwidth demands due to COVID-19 impacts, preparing for federal government broadband stimulus applications, and priming the access network for 5G rollout.  All this, while maintaining and supporting revenue from legacy analogy business services.

These service providers must work to expand bandwidth capacity efficiently and economically across their access networks. By leveraging their existing Tellabs 1000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) footprint, they can better serve their residential and business customers because:

  • Of the ubiquity of the T1000 with 15M lines and 15,000 to 20,000 systems across the USA
  • These T1000 systems can be easily upgraded to expand bandwidth capacity
  • Service Providers can satisfy more customers using less money, resources and time

A big part of this strategy will rely on the T1000 new VDSL2 6+6B card. This VDSL2 module can help network operators:

  • Deliver higher speeds to improve customer retention
  • Easily migrate from 10Mb/s to 25Mb/s to 50Mb/s to 100Mb/s
  • Increase premium service rates to generate more revenue
  • Enable rapid expansion, utilizing the embedded base to limit funding needs while meeting market demand

The new Tellabs 1000 VDSL2 6+6B plug-in card features:

  • A single card for all DSL functions, including VDSL2, VDSL2 bonding and ADSL2+, ADSL2+ bonding.
  • Cost savings due to the ability to minimize equipment inventory requirements.
  • A Broadcom chipset that adds flexibility and longevity.
  • Six ports of integrated DSL and POTS
  • DSL Speeds from 10Mb/s to 25Mb/s to 50Mb/s to 100Mb/s
  • Integrated management of VDSL2 6+6B into the existing Tellabs Panorama EMS
