Why the Tellabs 1000 MSAP is the leading solution for Network Modernization

Network modernization (or network transformation) represents a category of strategic work that our service provider customers continue to prioritize as they work to cost-effectively upgrade their networks.

The Tellabs 1000 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP) is the first best choice for network modernization projects. Simply stated, this is the bridging of old technologies with the new technologies. The Tellabs 1000 MSAP is ideally suited for helping our network operator customers with such projects as:

Using the Tellabs 1000 MSAP for the replacement of legacy equipment offers economic and efficient operation of a transformed network. Therefore, our telecommunication service provider customers have found Tellabs to be their go-to solution to satisfy the needs of this network transformation using the Tellabs 1000 MSAP with its various shelf sizes (e.g. Tellabs 1000 CBA, and Tellabs 1048 CBA for all applications, plus Tellabs 1000 High-Density CBA for POTS only applications) and VDSL2, 10G GbE226, 1G GbE222 and ES10/100 Ethernet cards options. It is the leading solution, because all the migration to IP/Ethernet, and optical connectivity can be accomplished without sacrificing any legacy copper-based narrowband services or forklift upgrades.
