JULY 22, 2010 -- Integrated communications provider nTelos has turned to Tellabs for optical transport and high-speed data tools that meet long-term growth needs.

On the heels of acquiring approximately 2,200 route miles of fiber from Allegheny Energy, nTelos reviewed network build-out requirements and updated its options for network elements. The goal was to choose the technology systems that best serve nTelos customer requirements in the expanded service areas.

nTelos selected the Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System (OTS) for the expanded fiber-optic network to power SONET, Ethernet, and 2.5G and 10G data services, with an eye toward 40G and 100G. The Tellabs 7100 OTS enables nTelos to increase the amount and types of traffic it can carry on the backbone with fewer network elements and reduced power consumption.

"The Tellabs 7100 OTS provides us the flexibility and reliability to serve our business customers with mission-critical services like data center connectivity and leased capacity for mobile backhaul," says Glenn Butler, director Engineering & Planning for nTelos.

nTelos has a base of Tellabs 1150 Multiservice Access Platforms. The service provider will continue to deploy the Tellabs 1150 platform as it expands IPTV and triple-play offerings for residential and business customers. Additionally, nTelos selected the Tellabs 1600-729 Optical Network Terminal to offer triple-play services in multi-dwelling units, such as apartment complexes, senior living centers, and office buildings.
