VDSL2 6+6B Plug-in Card
[Limited Availability] Optimize your broadband strategy by expanding bandwidth service delivery capacity of Tellabs 1000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP) with the new VDSL2 6+6B card. With the Tellabs VDSL2 6+6B, you can deliver integrated voice, data and video applications from the Tellabs 1000 MSAP taking advantage of both VDSL2 and ADSL2+ capabilities. The card supports broadband service over a single copper pair or via two adjacent bonded copper pairs. This enables operators to provide higher speed broadband services across existing copper Customer Service Areas (CSAs). Operating in both IP/Ethernet packet-based and ATM environments, the VDSL2 supports Packet Transfer Mode (PTM) traffic as well as ATM mode over copper.

Features and Benefits

  • Single card for all ADSL2+ and VDSL2 functions
  • Six ports of integrated DSL and POTS
  • Saves Cost and Minimizes Equipment Inventory
  • VDSL2, VDSL2 bonding, ADSL2+, ADSL2+ bonding, ADSL2+ PTM, ADSL2 and ADSL1
  • DSL Speeds Supported up to 100Mb/s
  • Provision via Craft User Interface (CUI) and Tellabs Panorama Element Management System (EMS)
