Tellabs deploys fiber-optic network infrastructure for Polish cable-TV operator

Multimedia Polska deploys Tellabs' 7100 Nano packet optical system.

Tellabs says that Polish cable-TV operator Multimedia Polska is deploying the optical transport systems vendor’s 7100 Nano Optical Transport System (OTS) for a new fiber-optic network deployment. The new network should go live early this year.

In light of growing demand for its fixed-line and mobile services portfolio, Multimedia Polska has expanded its optical transport network to support the delivery of new services to customers, Tellabs says. The cable operator, which has used Tellabs equipment in its network for some time, chose the Tellabs 7100 Nano OTS for its “proven reliability and scalability,” Tellabs asserts. The system’s port density and low power consumption also attracted the service provider’s attention, according to the systems house.

In addition to the packet-optical transport systems, Tellabs also has provided such services as network design and delivery, which included installation and commissioning. Tellabs also will train and hand over to Multimedia's operational team.

Marlin Equity Partners, which also owns 100G optical transport specialist Coriant, acquired Tellabs last December.
