 TELLABS SUCCESSFULLY CONDUCTS FIRST DEMONSTRATIONS OF ITS
 HIGH-BIT-RATE DIGITAL SUBSCRIBER LINE (HDSL) TRANSMISSION SYSTEM
 /Note to editor: Tellabs will unveil its HDSL product at a press conference and luncheon at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29, at ComNet '92 in the Washington, D.C., Convention Center./
 LISLE, Ill., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Tellabs, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLAB) said today it recently completed successful demonstrations of its new high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (HDSL) transmission system to Bell Canada. The HDSL system developed by Tellabs will provide North American telephone companies and other telecommunications service providers an alternative means of deploying high-speed digital services using existing copper facilities.
 "I believe this is the first HDSL transmission system demonstration of its kind in the world," said Jon C. Grimes, vice president and general manager of the Network Products Division at Tellabs. "Tellabs and Bell Canada have worked closely together to become the leader in developing HDSL transmission products. Our HDSL technology is on the cutting edge for telephone companies to optimize their return on investment and to stimulate deployment of new services."
 Under an agreement signed in 1990, Tellabs has used Bell Canada's HDSL transceiver technology to develop its own HDSL transmission products.
 The demonstration was part of a two-day test in Montreal and Toronto in which Tellabs used HDSL transmission units to carry a full T1 signal over two ordinary carrier serving area copper cable pairs. In addition, a digitally compressed video signal operating at the T1 rate was transported end-to-end to highlight the T1 transparency of the new HDSL transmission system.
 PROVIDING TELCOS AND OTHERS WITH ADDED SERVICES/RELIABILITY
 Grimes said Tellabs' HDSL system will provide several advantages for telephone companies and private local area network service providers. Those advantages are simplified installation, reduced installation and maintenance costs, greater service reliability, and the ability to easily provision new service offerings. Grimes also noted that the HDSL system will make it possible for telephone companies to reduce their installation time for T1 services down from four weeks to several days.
 Private local area networks will also benefit from HDSL transmission technology. For example, Fortune 500 companies that have invested in copper facilities in a campus environment can improve their voice, data and video transmission capabilities by using HDSL technology.
 Tellabs will unveil its HDSL transmission product and other new voice and data communications equipment at Communication Networks (ComNet) '92 Conference and Exposition. ComNet will be held Jan. 28-30 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
