Our core purpose
We enrich people's lives by innovating the way the world connects™.
- Be our customers' trusted partner
- Relentlessly innovate for success

- Innovate with growth products and services. Today Tellabs invests 85% of our research and development in growth products. Our innovative mobile, optical and IP/Ethernet products enable the mobile Internet, optical and business networks.
- Invest in growth markets. We emphasize markets that are growing faster than our customers' overall capital spending — mobile, optical and business.
Advance the smart mobile Internet to help our customers succeed.
We need to make networks smarter with technologies and capabilities to enhance the user experience and enable operators to make money.
The smart mobile Internet has four main aspects:
- Visibility. To run efficient networks, operators need to have visibility to what the users are doing, what applications are being used, where the hot spots are in the network and what's causing the hot spots.
- Control. Operators need to be able to prioritize traffic, set policies and block traffic if necessary.
- Optimization. There are two aspects of optimization. One is the capacity and the use of network resources so they're used most efficiently. Equally important is optimizing the quality of experience for users.
- Monetization. We need enough intelligence in the network so operators can make money on the applications and services that are being delivered.
