Service providers, large enterprises, and U.S. Government agencies use Tellabs Optical Solution; now, companies that serve rural areas also can benefit from the Tellabs 7100 system. The system enables service providers to increase bandwidth and maximize network efficiency.

According to company officials, the new Tellabs system:
- provides efficient delivery of bandwidth on demand, with four times the bandwidth for 50 to 70 percent of the cost of upgrading legacy systems;
- reduces overall network cost up to 75 percent with fewer network elements that require less space, power consumption, support, and maintenance; and
- offers built-in redundancy with six-nines (99.9999%) service availability, roughly 30 seconds of downtime per year.

In addition to the Tellabs 7100 OTS, the Tellabs 1000 and 1100 Multiservice Access Series, and the Tellabs 8800 Multiservice Router also have RUS acceptance. The Tellabs 7100 OTS is a part of Tellabs Optical Solutions.
