DFN-Verein Upgrades to 100G With ECI
PETACH TIKVAH, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, has upgraded the German Research Network - Deutsches Forschungsnetz e.V. (DFN-Verein) network, enabling the delivery of 100G services, for faster connectivity and increased capacity. This new 100G service has been deployed in the organization’s X-WiN research network.
ECI deployed the Apollo Optimized Multi-Layer Transport (OMLT) platforms in all 69 locations of the X-WiN network. The network is based on colorless, directionless and contentionless ROADM WDM layers and ODU cross-connect at Layer 1 – thus enabling a dynamic network with the ability to respond quickly to any new service demand.
The Apollo family was launched in November 2011, and is enjoying great traction with service providers around the world. In December 2012, ECI has launched the Native Packet Transport (NPT) family, also part of the OMLT architecture, to deliver an affordable, scalable and easy to manage metro packet transport networks, for lowest TCO.
