NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 25 /- Tellabs marked a significant milestone in delivering high bandwidth video and data services to consumers by shipping its one millionth optical network terminal (ONT). The Tellabs® 1600 Optical Network Terminal Series is the industry's most comprehensive ONT portfolio. It is a leading solution for the delivery of high-quality bundled voice, video and data services over Fiber to the Premises (FTTP).
"PON technology is widely used by most major service providers that are pushing fiber deeper into their networks," said Ken Twist, vice president of broadband research and technology consulting at Ovum. "These optical networks help service providers efficiently meet consumers' demand for bandwidth now and provide a strong foundation for service providers to deliver new services in the future."
Tellabs is the leader in North American fiber access, according to third-party analysts. The company's ONTs are among the first to be certified by the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA).
