Tellabs unveils new edge router portfolio optimized for LTE-Advanced networks at Mobile World Congress 2014

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tellabs, recently acquired by Marlin Equity Partners who will merge it into Coriant, another portfolio company, is enhancing its Mobile Backhaul Solutions portfolio for LTE-advanced networks at Mobile World Congress with new capabilities that support fast-growing data services, low-latency voice and a wide range of applications – consumer, enterprise, machine-to-machine connectivity, cloud networking and more.

Tellabs' new edge router portfolio is further enabled to support Coriant's multilayer SDN solutions for mobile networks. SDN promises dramatic OpEx and CapEx savings in mobile backhaul. Tellabs will exhibit in Hall 6, Stand 6C61 in Barcelona, February 24-27.

  • The Tellabs® 8665 Smart Router is a new high-scale node, providing a seamless evolution for Tellabs Smart Routers managed by the Tellabs® 8000 Intelligent Network Manager. Its IP routing and Ethernet switching capabilities, aligned with other Tellabs 8600 Smart Routers, support mobile operators as they build and scale LTE and LTE-Advanced networks. The Tellabs 8665 router is a 900 Gbps full duplex IP/MPLS router with an innovative design, small footprint, low power consumption, and future scalability to 3 Tbps. With Ethernet interfaces from 1 to 100 Gbps, it offers full capabilities for all-IP mobile and fixed networks.
  • The new Tellabs® 8615 Smart Router is optimized for mobile and fixed-mobile converged networks, with 44 Gbps throughput in a compact 1RU unit. In the future, two Tellabs 8615 routers can be stacked to provide 88 Gbps throughput.  
  • The new Tellabs® 8602 Smart Router is a compact, environmentally hardened, full featured 6-port IP/MPLS router that's only one-third the size of competing products. It fits in the most demanding locations due to its compact, environmentally hardened, water- and dust-proof (IP 67) design. The Tellabs 8602 router enables plug-and-play autoconfiguration through SON (Self Organizing Network) capabilities, speeding deployment of small cells and macrocells. It's the first in a line of a new series of smart next-generation routers.
  • The new Tellabs® Integrated GPS (GNSS) SFP Module extends Tellabs' industry- leading packet synchronization capabilities (e.g., IEEE1588v2, SynchE, ACR). It enables a flexible and cost-efficient Time-of-Day and Phase Synchronization in mobile backhaul networks, which is critical as networks evolve to LTE-TDD and LTE-Advanced. It enables substantial capital expense savings compared with external GPS receiver solutions. The GPS SFP  is managed by the Tellabs intelligent manager,  delivering simple and consistent support of synchronization across the network.
  • The new user interface for Tellabs® Insight AnalyticsSM Services offers dashboards focused on operators' top concerns in mobile backhaul networks. It reveals network design flaws and risks not otherwise visible to operators, dramatically reduces reporting and analysis time, and helps mobile operators find root causes of problems faster. It's simple to use and deploy.
  • Tellabs Packet Optical Solutions provide cost-effective scalable transport solutions that enable mobile and wholesale operators to both deliver cost-effective backhaul services as well as expand into adjacent markets such as revenue generating business services.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
