The Tellabs Telco Access FTTx includes Fiber-To-The-Home, Fiber-To-The-Node, Fiber-To-The-Basement (MDU) and Fiber-To-The-Business. The Tellabs FTTH BPON and GPON solutions power some of the largest PON deployments in the world. The flexibility of the products enable service providers to use the same product portfolio as used for the MSAP applications. This makes inventory and deployment easier when compared to having separate application-specific equipment.

The FTTN and FTTB applications offer an array of optical transport options and predefined kits to nodes to meet service providers’ network requirements. Nodes can be supported by Gigabit Ethernet, OC12c or OC3c interfaces. Every FTTx application supports all of the services offered by Tellabs® Telco Access products.



The Tellabs Passive Optical Network (PON) plug-in card is part of the Tellabs® 1000 Multiservice Access Platform, an end-to-end, standards-based solution, which enables accelerated migration to Fiber-To-The-Premises (FTTP) deployment. The Tellabs 1000 builds on its industry-leading integrated multiservice access platform.

The PON plug-in card is the key enabler of the Tellabs 1000 MSAP shelf as a modular, highly integrated Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and voice gateway combination. The PON card provides an interface to the Optical Distribution Network (ODN) and supports up to 32 Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) for residential and business applications. The PON card has an upstream maximum bandwidth capacity of 155 Mbps and downstream capacity of 622 Mbps. It is “BPON” compliant with the FSAN, ITU-T G.983 standard. This approach enables volume-based cost reductions, use of best-in-class product sets and common performance and operation among vendors to provide optimal economic solutions to service providers.


Tellabs Telco Access provides a feature-rich, native end-to-end IP/Ethernet delivery platform that offers the packet-based high-bandwidth technology required for today’s in-demand telecom services. Tellabs fiber access solutions enable service providers to support both broadband DLC architectures and the latest in all-fiber GPON. With downstream speeds of 2.5 Gbps and upstream speeds of 1.2 Gbps, GPON provides the necessary bandwidth to provide bundled services to customers.
