PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom (NASDAQ: ECIL) announced that it has adapted Raman technology to cost-effectively connect regional and long-haul networks in locations that were previously difficult or expensive to link. ECI's Raman technology requires fewer amplifiers to link networks across different islands or other remote locations. With this optimized solution, carriers and providers can deliver critical services to untapped subscribers at competitive prices.

Raman technology was initially designed for ultra long-haul networks, and is typically expensive to use. After being the first to deploy Dynamic EDFA technology, ECI now adds Raman technology to cost-effectively use the fiber as the amplification media to connect remote locations separated by deserts, jungles or water for regional and long-haul applications.

Upgrading the optical fiber infrastructure to carry DWDM between a group of islands, for example, used to require expensive undersea systems to connect them. ECI's Raman technology, offers a much more cost-effective solution by enabling the connection of regional and long-haul distances without needing inline amplifiers underwater or between distances. This eliminates the need for expensive undersea waterproof amplifiers, reducing costs significantly for the provider.

"ECI is able to address some of the most complex network requirements faced by carriers in terms of connecting remote locations with our cost-effective Raman alternative," said Ido Gur, VP Sales and Marketing for ECI's Optical Networks Division. "Our unique adaptation of Raman technology delivers a very attractive opportunity for carriers looking to reach new areas with comprehensive services. ECI's Raman technology is available now and is being deployed in an undersea network in the Philippines."
