Tellabs Signs Two New Agreements for Network Services From Verizon

Tellabs, a US-based provider of solutions that enable video, data and voice services, has signed two new agreements for wired and wireless network services from Verizon. The services are expected to enable Tellabs to connect with its extended network of customers, partners and employees.

Under the first agreement, Verizon Business designed and deployed a global networking solution incorporating Verizon Private IP, long-distance and internet services that will link more than 3,500 Tellabs employees at 50 sites worldwide.

Under the second agreement, Verizon Wireless will become Tellabs' preferred provider for wireless services, which will include account management, billing tools, management of devices including BroadbandAccess PC cards, and other applications.

Jean Holley, executive vice president and chief information officer of Tellabs, said: "We were able to work with Verizon as a total business partner to help mobilize our business across wired and wireless network environments to more effectively communicate with our customers, partners and employees."
