PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, today announced that Metrosystems, a system integrator in Switzerland, has selected its 9700 Series Carrier Ethernet Switch Router (CESR) for its Carrier-class Ethernet solution portfolio.

The first customer deployment has already been completed with Datapark, a service provider for the city of Wil in St. Gallen, Switzerland. ECI delivered its 9700 Series to support the operator's IPTV service offering in the region, addressing the growing traffic demands and providing advanced Ethernet-based capabilities to the region.

Experiencing an increase in demand for Carrier Ethernet solutions, Metrosystems required a partner to address its customer needs for new data-driven services delivered at a higher capacity. Part of ECI's recently announced 1Net business framework, ECI’s cost-effective, future proof CESR platform was selected to provide efficient support for the latest Ethernet and IP services. With this selection, ECI’s CESR 9700 Series is providing Metrosystems and its customers with an end-to-end, carrier-grade packet transport solution that is MEF-certified. With the need to add new offerings and replace existing solutions, ECI’s CESR solution enables Metrosystems to remain highly competitive while reducing operational and capital expenditures.

“When looking for a new partner to deliver Carrier Ethernet solutions, ECI’s CESR platform proved to be far above other similar solutions based on its flexibility, advanced feature set, like 10GE and MPLS capabilities and future proof platform priced cost-effectively. We look forward to working with ECI on future endeavors,” said Andre Otto, General Manager of Metrosystems.
