Tellabs 1000 MSAP can optimize your broadband stimulus projects by minimize cost of entry, by investing only when needed, and thus optimize project returns.
Satisfy more CAF and RDOF targets with less money, resources and time
The Connect America Fund (CAF), including the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF), is an initiative to improve our nation’s access to high-speed broadband services. Up until now, prudent business decisions have driven service providers to use CAF funding to subsidize the cost of building new access network infrastructure in their more populated, and less rural, serving areas. No doubt, the remaining census block areas that need to be addressed are perceived as more challenging (i.e. smaller, rural, 25M/3M, 50M/5M, higher construction cost, lower homes passed projections).
The Tellabs 1000 MSAP (aka T1000, DMAX, AFC, UMC) help service providers tackle these more difficult serving areas with a strategy that uses your Tellabs 1000 MSAP embedded base. This can be done easily by upgrading and expanding the existing Tellabs broadband systems to provide 25M/3M and 50/5 service. We can do this at a lower cost, and faster time to market than a Connect America Fund, and Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, strategy that does not include the Tellabs 1000.
- Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems are CAF and RDOF service compatible
- Use existing T1000 sites and/or extend and expand systems in targets
- Satisfy underserved/unserved targets with less money, resources and time
- Upgrade to 25M/3M or 50M/5M or 100M/10M with lowest costs
- Win more competitive reverse auction bids by using T1000 embedded base
- Sustain, expand and evolve the existing installed base
A 5-Step Broadband Strategy for Connecting the Underserved and the Unserved
- Identify which Tellabs 1000 systems can reach the underserved and unserved customers. These system may have 22 card slot T1000 “DMAX” chassis or a smaller 10 card slot T1048 chassis.
- Once located, you can easily upgrade and expand these existing, and already operationalized, Tellabs 1000 systems in the most economical means possible. Simply add VDSL2 6+6 plug-in cards to a broadband-ready chassis.
- Additionally, you can enhance the performance of those chassis, and maximize their transport capacity, by installing the Gigabit Ethernet (GbE222) plug-in card into the same shelf as the xDSL service cards.
- Where a service provider chooses to optimize the outside fiber plant or aggregate gigabit Ethernet ports, you can install the new 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE226) plug-in card to transport all the broadband traffic from multiple GbE222 cards, enabling the highest possible DSL speeds over the Tellabs 1000 platform.
- Best yet, Tellabs professional services can assist with your broadband upgrade projects to ensure success. Our professional services can supplement your internal resources to plan, build and operate these access networks.
