August 28, 2009--General Dynamics, a prime contractor for the U.S. Army's Infrastructure Modernization (IMOD) program, selected Tellabs Government Systems (Naperville, IL) to deliver a secure, highly reliable optical transport network between Army bases in Texas and New Mexico. According to Tellabs, 41 of the top 50 global telecom service providers choose its mobile backhaul, optical networking, and business services solutions.

A key goal of IMOD is the upgrade and expansion of telecommunications networks to improve voice and data services. As part of the Army's Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (I3MP), General Dynamics will deploy the Tellabs 7100 Optical Transport System between White Sands Missile Range and the Fort Bliss Range Complex. The contiguous bases form the largest military installation in the United States, encompassing almost 3200 square miles.

Tellabs says its 7100 system converges advanced optical networking and services layer technologies onto one seamless platform (see also "Tellabs sues Fujitsu for patent infringement"). It is cost-effective and simple to quickly deploy new services and provide virtually unlimited bandwidth anywhere at any time. "Tellabs Government Systems forms strategic partnerships with system integrators to reduce the cost, complexity, space and power needs of telecom networks," said Joe Shilgalis, VP of Tellabs Government Systems. "We will work closely with General Dynamics to lower the total cost of ownership for the inter-base transport network with the Tellabs 7100 system."
