Tellabs says it has supplied 345 reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs) to Frontier Communications Corp. (NYSE: FTR) for a 6,500-mile optical network. The company has delivered both the Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System and the Tellabs 7100 Nano Optical Transport System for the Frontier deployment.

Frontier has deployed the systems in West Virginia, Oregon, Washington, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois. The carrier has deployed 108 ROADM systems in West Virginia alone, Tellabs adds.

Frontier will use the systems for packet-optical transport to enable its network to support residential and business services based on Ethernet (fiber to the office or cell site), Session Internet Protocol (SIP) trunking, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), and Dedicated Internet Access Services (DIA).
