Verizon has selected the Tellabs 7100 optical transport system to provide next-generation solutions in the backbone of its metro networks. Verizon will initially deploy the 7100 system in its FiOS fiber-to-the-premises triple-play network. The telecom will later use the system to converge all of its core metro services onto dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) transport.

The Tellabs 7100 optical transport system aims to simplify Verizon's video, voice and data network. It is said to integrate pure optical switching via wavelength selective switches, reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexing, Ethernet switching, next-generation SONET/SDH add-drop multiplexers and DWDM into a single platform.

"Tellabs has developed a next-generation optical transport platform that meets Verizon's requirements to reduce the number of transport elements, simplify network creation and customer service activation, and lower the total cost of ownership," said Paul Lacouture, Verizon executive vice president of engineering and technology.

Verizon claims to be one of the first North American carriers to deploy mesh optical networking and optical drop and continue capabilities in its core metro networks.
