PETACH TIKVAH, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, announced today the market launch of three new platforms in its CE 2.0 MEF Certified NPT series. This series provides an end-to-end metro and cloud networking solution - from access to core - combining carrier grade performance and availability with the efficiency of packet transport. ECI’s new offerings enhance service availability and facilitate service provisioning, maintenance and control; thereby enabling greater competitive differentiation for service providers.
At the heart of the offerings, is the dual stack MPLS scheme which facilitates the seamless interworking between MPLS-TP and IP/MPLS domains - effectively removing the barriers for extending MPLS into the metro. The dual stack also enables service optimized selection of the MPLS control scheme which allows service providers to better match their topology and service needs without sacrificing performance or limiting features.
All three of ECI’s new platforms provide deliverables which go beyond today's metro requirements. More specifically, the NPT-1050 is a unique, fully redundant, high capacity 10GE metro access platform offering service assurance and high speed access in compact device at the edge of the network. The scaled up version of the NPT-1200 includes more than triple the previous switching capacity (up to 320Gbps) for metro aggregation. The NPT 1800, designed for the metro core, is scalable to over 1 Tb of switching capacity with 100GbE interfaces.
