Service providers face many complex challenges in last-mile access networks, especially the growing demand for business services. The Tellabs® 1000 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP) maximizes broadband capabilities in access networks. The Tellabs 1000 MSAP provides Ethernet uplinks, Ethernet internodal transport and Ethernet service delivery while continuing to support revenue-generating Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) services and transport. This rare combination in a Broadband Digital Loop Carrier (BBDLC) makes the Tellabs 1000 the best low-cost choice for the migration of ATM and TDM to IP/Ethernet. With simple in-service upgrades, service providers obtain the technology, capacity and Quality of Service (QoS) to support 100 percent of their service offerings and broadband initiatives.


Tellabs 1000 MSAP Services

The Tellabs 1000 supports copper and optical technologies, including Ethernet, SONET/SDH, ATM and IMA. The system is extremely scalable and supports from one to more than 2,000 subscribers. The system also supports traditional POTS and other legacy services, such as ISDN, FAX, DID/DOD, 2-Wire/4-Wire, Pay Phone, E&M, TO and EBS along with industry-standard VDSL2 and ADSL2+ (bonded and unbonded) and POTS subscribers. In addition, the Tellabs 1000 provides Ethernet transport and Ethernet services delivery with the Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver and Ethernet Service 10/100 (ES 10/100) plug-in cards. This means that service providers can offer bonded DSL, wireless traffic backhaul and business premises services delivery across an Ethernet BBDLC without sacrificing carrier-class reliability and redundancy.

Tellabs MSAP System

A Tellabs 1000 MSAP system configuration starts with the CBA (channel bank assembly) with 26 slots. There are four common control slots for processing and power, and 22 multipurpose slots for any narrowband or broadband plug-in cards. The system supports up to eight CBAs per terminal. There is one LET (Local Exchange Terminal) generally in a central office and up to 32 RSTs (Remote Subscriber Terminals) connecting to the LET via point-to-point, star, chain or tree topologies. The LETs and RSTs can be connected over a variety of transport options, including T1/HDSL, OC3c, OC12c and Gigabit Ethernet. The RSTs are ideal for FTTN (Fiber-to-the-Node)/remote cabinet installation, business park deployments and equipment closet installations in businesses and multidwelling units.
