Business Segments[3]

I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high-quality aritcles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i’m happy to convey that I have a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make sure to do not forget this site and give it a glance regularly.


35% of Revenue, 68% of Profit* The Transport segment is focused on network devices that switch low-speed voice and data signals onto high-speed lines and vice versa, as well as voice quality enhancement products. Revenue from the Transport segment is earned primarily in North America, although the new segment has some international presence.


12% of Revenue, 21% of Profit* The Services segment delivers deployment, support, professional consulting, training and systems integration services to Tellabs customers. Customers enlisted the support of Tellabs Services in order to implement this solution, which leveraged significantly different technologies than those to which they had used before.

I've observed that in the world these days, video games incldue the latest trend with children of all ages. Occasionally it may be unattainable to drag your kids away from the video games. If you want the best of both worlds, there are many educational activities for kids. Good post.

I believe in auiatotmon and systems, but one needs to make his own due diligence as well. Ask questions: Does the developer trade his/her's system? Is the market liquid enough to absorb many traders for that system? One needs to define what is a trading system. Some systems provide entry only, some have risk management built in, some have amazing auto execution while others rely on manual submissions. The idea of why would some one sell a system? is just a bit to negative and while it has a winning tone in an open forum, cant be applied across all systems. Here are some additional questions I would ask: In my honest opinion here are the question you should ask a system developers: 1) What is the amount of drawdown? 2) What is the capital required 3) The cost of execution 4) has it been tested in real time vs. hypothetical4) Could it be traded in real time? 5) What platform is it executed on? I hope this helps.


Mergers amongst both carriers and telecom equipment manufacturers have created an environment of intense competition for Tellabs. In such conditions, Tellabs will need to continue its production of highly specialized products in order to withstand the pressure to adjust its cost structure in the carriers' favor. Tellabs' closest competitors in telecommunications equipment industry include:

Alcatel-Lucent - Headquartered in Paris, Alcatel-Lucent provides services, hardware, and software to telecommunications service providers and enterprises worldwide. In contrast to Tellabs, Alcatel-Lucent generates sales almost equally between its European and North American regions.

Nortel Networks - Nortel Networks, a Canadian company, provides similar technologies to Tellabs and its competitors but has distinguished itself by making significant strides in servicing the Chinese cable television market.

Ciena Corporation - Ciena Corporation is a smaller company in the same industry space as Tellabs. Back in June 1998, Tellabs announced that it would acquire Ciena for $7.1 billion in stock. However, after AT&T's announcement that it would not do business with Ciena, Tellabs walked away from the acquisition. Ciena has shown improvement since 2000 but generally struggles in the challenging telecom environment.
