AT&T Switches From Tellabs To Ericsson

Light Reading notes that AT&T, who just launched U-Verse in their first BellSouth territory market (Atlanta), has dumped Tellabs in the southeast. The company has discontinued purchasing Tellabs fiber-to-the-curb gear, and instead is now using Ericsson FTTN gear. Telephony Online has more detail on why AT&T is shifting from FTTC to FTTP in the Southeast:
In an interview today, Leopold said AT&T may choose to deploy Ericsson's gear in a configuration very similar to FTTC but based on IP rather than ATM. One of his sources had described to him a scenario in which AT&T would deploy fiber to Ericsson equipment located within a few hundred feet of each home and run VDSL2 the rest of the way, which essentially describes FTTC. The difference is, that 500 feet is IP-based VDSL2, so it fits better into the U-Verse architecture, in that you're getting rid of all the ATM, he said.AT&T's U-Verse deployment area is small for now (only a few hundred homes) as the company tests the service on the former BellSouth network.

The major complaint that was issued was by a reviewer
who thought that the product was a bit too pricey.
Christmas comes round quickly and is almost upon us yet again.
At 14+ these models are more in the league of
adult collectors who enjoy the attention to detail and design
and the intricate build.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet
effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've
done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog
loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
