Tellabs optical wares receive DoD's stamp of approval

Tellabs' optical products may be synonymous with traditional service providers, but increasingly these solutions are finding greater utility in the public sector. The trend continued this week when the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced that the vendor passed requirements for the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC).

In this latest certification round, the JITC approved a number of optical LAN and packet optical networking products. On the optical LAN side, JITC certified four Tellabs products, including the Tellabs 1000 Multiservice Access Platform, Tellabs 1134 and 1150 Multiservice Access Platforms, and Tellabs 1600 Optical Network Terminals. From a packet optical perspective, JITC certified Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System and the Tellabs 7100 Nano Optical Transport system.

Tellabs is no stranger to supplying wares to the defense and overall public sector industry segment. In addition to working with carrier partners, Tellabs has been invited to provide its optical LAN and packet optical network platforms to other high profile defense modernization projects including the Army's Infrastructure Modernization (IMOD) program through its partnership with systems integrator General Dynamics.
