Feb. 12, 2002--Tellabs today announced a (Naperville, IL) new scalable, high-density 6350 transport switch that enables operators to cost-effectively manage backbone traffic in metro and regional networks.

The 6350 switch is a flexible and adaptive multi-service platform that delivers voice services from 2 Mbits/sec and higher, leased line services, and such value-added services such as high-speed Ethernet. The 4/4/1 cross-connect can be deployed at the very edge of the network, optimizing network efficiency and minimizing floor space to power consumption costs. One rack of equipment handles more than one million simultaneous phone calls and Internet sessions.

Offering a "pay as you grow" model enabling service providers to increase network capacity and instantly provision new services on an as needed basis, the switch is designed to lower initial capital investments.

The switch provides an expansion route for Tellabs FOCUS SDH platform customers who now require greater bandwidth and switching capacity. The system can be used directly with Tellabs' DWDM systems for capacity expansion through its colored interfaces.
