by | Mar 17, 2020 | Event

Tellabs 1000 MSAP is the best choice for FCC RFOD bids

Watch this webinar, and you will learn how your existing Tellabs 1000 MSAP footprint can be better leveraged to win more Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) reverse auction competitive bids.

Over the next 10-years, RDOF will offer over $20 billion dollars to improve broadband speeds in unserved rural areas. RDOF continues the mission of the FCC’s Connect America Fund (CAF) program. For incumbent service providers like AT&T, CenturyLink, Windstream and Frontier, RDOF extends CAF funding through 2021. Different then CAF, RDOF use a 2-phase reverse auction process over the next 2-years that will promote direct competition for RDOF dollars between the incumbent and independent network operators.

Tellabs stands ready to help you submit a winning competitive reverse auction bid by utilizing your existing Tellabs 1000 MSAP embedded base for FCC RDOF projects.

We can do this at a lower cost, and faster time to market than a RDOF strategy that does not include the Tellabs 1000. Simply leverage Tellabs 1000 shelves, xDSL cards, 1G or 10G Ethernet cards, and our professional services, to upgrade and expand your existing, and already operationalized, Tellabs broadband systems.

You can now view our on-demand webinar at your convenience, and download slides from the webinar.
