PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, today announced that Radiográfica Costarricense S.A. (RACSA), telecom provider for data, Ethernet, and Internet services in Costa Rica, will expand its network with ECI’s XDM® Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP). ECI was chosen for its ability to cost-effectively combine SDH, Ethernet switching and WDM on a single, converged platform. The network is managed by ECI’s LightSoft® multi-layer network management system, delivering an end-to-end solution to manage the different equipments, network segments and technologies under one management system.

Faced with increased competition in Costa Rica, RACSA has begun a major expansion project to provide more data services as well as add video and voice services to its customers. To support their aggressive expansion efforts, RACSA issued an open RFP to leading equipment vendors to provide transport offerings to support its existing and future networks. ECI's offer was chosen as the most advanced, fully compliant and price competitive solution, providing SDH, WDM and Ethernet on a cost-effective converged XDM platform. ECI's Global Services Division unit, together with ECI Costa Rica staff, have worked closely with RACSA to allow the full deployment of an end-to-end turnkey project. In addition, ECI is now concluding with RACSA the expansion of this network.

“ECI's XDM MSPP platform was the platform to have met all our requirements in the most cost-effective manner. ECI’s innovative, single platform XDM MSPP, offering the most advanced services on the same flexible platform, (SDH, WDM, Ethernet, Video), and the most competitive total cost of ownership were the main considerations to drive our decision to work with ECI,” said Alberto Bermudez, Deputy Manager of RACSA. "We are committed to supporting an aggressive network expansion, and we need to continuously invest in the most advanced but still cost effective technologies available to keep up with the fast growing requirements of the Costa Rican market and the increasing competition.”
