NAPERVILLE, Ill., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tellabs has entered into a distribution agreement with WESCO Distribution (NYSE: WCC), a leading global supply chain solutions provider of data communications, security, and electrical products and services, to distribute Tellabs' Optical LAN solution through its subsidiary Communications Supply Corporation (CSC). The agreement will broaden the availability of Tellabs' Optical LAN for U.S. businesses, government agencies and other organizations. WESCO will build on its relationships with value-added resellers, system integrators and other supply chain partners to facilitate sales, deployment and maintenance support for U.S. customers.

That's because Tellabs Optical LAN combines all of a building's communications networks into one, improving security and eliminating the need for future re-cabling. Tellabs Optical LAN is JITC-certified for use in government networks.
