7 August 2003 London Lightwave -- Tellabs and the AMT Group have signed an agreement enabling the AMT Group to distribute Tellabs' managed access and next-generation optical networking equipment to telecommunications operators in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

"Tellabs' solutions will help us to provide carrier class communications solutions to network operators across the CIS," contends Ivan Evdokimov, general director at AMT Group. "This will enable them to cost-effectively and efficiently deliver new and improved services to their customers today, while future-proofing their network for the delivery of next-generation voice and data services tomorrow."

"We are committed to meeting the needs of our customers by delivering solutions which provide real business value," adds Bill Burns, vice president of Tellabs Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). "We are delighted to welcome the AMT Group to our strong and growing network of partners. They will provide the local specialised knowledge and support required by operators across CIS, maintaining and integrating our solutions into their customers' networks."

The Tellabs 8100 managed access system enables services to be quickly provisioned through easy-to-use management software, say company representatives. It is used by service providers to provide fully managed carrier-class voice, data, and video services to enterprises and has been developed to ensure that capacity is continuously increased to meet new service demands.

Tellabs claims its 6300 managed transport series is a breakthrough, next-generation SDH platform that enables service providers to open up new revenue streams by adding Ethernet capabilities to the transport network. The high-density products cost-effectively collect and consolidate voice and data traffic in the metro and regional areas.
