Ontario & Trumansburg Telephone makes investment in Tellabs

Users gain speed of fiber access at the cost of copper.
Naperville, IN., Nov. 19, 2007 -
Consumers and businesses need speedy Internet and video services. To meet the demand, service providers face constant pressure to invest in their networks.

But technology is changing so rapidly that providers cannot keep up. Now is the time for an infrastructure investment that offers a surefire return.

Smart economics: flexible technology now, room to grow later

Ontario & Trumansburg Telephone protects its network investment with the Tellabs® 1150 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP). What makes the Tellabs 1150 MSAP a sure thing? It offers providers instant flexibility to connect to users with any kind of access technology, including GPON. GPON, the latest way to provide higher-speed services to users, enables movie downloads that take seconds, not minutes.

So Ontario & Trumansburg can serve upstate New York by taking fiber to a neighborhood, block, or all the way to homes. And within a year, the investment in the Tellabs platform will really pay off: It will support data rates four times greater than competitors'.

"Choosing Tellabs is the best investment we can make in our network now while also preparing for the future," said Jim Baase, vice president, CLEC operations, Ontario & Trumansburg Telephone Companies. "It enables us to immediately deliver faster bandwidth speeds and new services to customers today, with room for network growth tomorrow."

Instant payoff: superior service with fiber for the cost of copper

The Tellabs 1150 MSAP is priced comparably to traditional copper networks. It enables operators to offer video and Internet as well as voice services to users. These services are essential for retaining customers in an increasingly competitive market.

Future returns: new services with no new equipment

The Tellabs 1150 MSAP enables Ontario & Trumansburg to offer the advanced services businesses need. Soon, it will give entire companies the speed and reliability of office mates emailing each other, a technology known as Transparent LAN.

The company can also offer disaster recovery services to enterprises, without the need to invest in a separate data network. On the consumer side, users will enjoy data rates as fast as those in the largest companies.

"Our customers need to make smart investments that will keep addressing the growing bandwidth demands of users," said Carl DeWilde, Tellabs executive vice president, global sales and strategy. "Tellabs' products deliver more bandwidth to users now, and guarantee even more bandwidth in the future."
