The Tellabs 5th Annual Partner Conference was bigger than ever and our best conference yet. The fact that Tellabs Optical LAN market adoption is accelerating in government, hospitality, education and business enterprise markets demonstrates the success of our integrators, resellers, and vendor alliances partners.
But, that was only one of many exciting details revealed at the Global Partner Conference. Attendees were the first to hear announcements about new products, services, and programs that help our partners succeed.
The conference featured strong participation from our vendor alliance partners who provide solutions that compliment and optimize enterprise fiber-based LAN implementations, such as 3M, Alpha Technologies, Belden, CommScope, Corning, EXFO, Network Integrity, Optical Cable Corporation, VoltServer and Xirrus Wi-Fi Networks.
We also announced that OLAN Software Release (SR) 29.1 is in general availability and shipping in volume. The SR29.1 additions include the hospitality-focused Tellabs™ 142R Optical Network Terminal (ONT) and the outdoor Tellabs™ 140W Integrated Connection Enclosure (ICE). This Optical LAN (OLAN) release also delivers additional software enhancements to our Advanced Security, Advanced Availability and Advanced Operations Software Packages.
Our conference attendees graciously contributed their efforts and time to a team workshop that benefited the Homeless Coalition of Dallas. This charity event brought all the conference attendees together in a collaborative effort to make blankets that were distributed to homeless people in the Dallas area. Attendees also participated in the “mannequin challenge”, adding a little bit of fun to the event.
Finally, we were excited to host an evening reception at our newly refurbished world headquarters in Dallas and unveil its technology showcase. This technology showcase demonstrates OLAN system mounting, powering, cabling and pathway options. All attendees were invited to tour the facility and see various Tellabs cubicle-mounted, rack-mounted and wall-mounted ONT choices. They also saw a variety of design options for ceiling mount enclosures, power distribution, fiber management and optical splitters.
The 5th Annual Tellabs Partner Conference was a fabulous event and we are very thankful to work with an outstanding eco system of integrators, resellers, and vendor alliances partners to accelerate our combined successes.
