Tellabs cuts 30 staffers

Tellabs said late last week that its is pursuing cost-reduction measures that include the elimination of about 30 jobs from an outpost office in Denmark. With Alcatel-Lucent and Adtran both having issued revenue warnings recently, we're on the lookout for other signs of vendor volatility. However, a relatively small number of jobs--less than 1 percent of Tellabs' total staff--being cut from an international office isn't necessarily cause for alarm.

Meanwhile, the rumors that Tellabs could be acquired by a larger vendor have cooled considerably since this summer, but there's still chatter about the possibility Tellabs itself could acquire Carrier Access Corp.
