PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure, announced today the expansion of its XDM® Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP) family of products for service providers in North America, with the XDM-300's SONET capabilities. The XDM-300 is a compact packet optical platform, converging Carrier Ethernet, SONET and WDM functionalities for metro access and metro edge applications. The XDM-300 enables optimal transition to 10 Gbps and Carrier Ethernet and MPLS support for residential and business services. The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has certified the XDM product suite for MEF 9 and 14 test specification compliance for Carrier Ethernet.

“Adding the XDM-300 strengthens ECI’s optical offering for North America. As carriers face continuing pressures to provide a mix of legacy and Ethernet services, multi-service converged solutions are becoming increasingly important elements in the network,” said Christina Howe Dietrich, Senior Analyst for optical infrastructure at Current Analysis. “By matching TDM functionality with scalable Ethernet and MPLS capabilities, the XDM-300 offers services providers the necessary flexibility and versatility to maximize their revenues and optimize their networks.”

The XDM-300, complementing ECI's ROADM-based installed infrastructure in North America, improves service agility by providing multi-protocol, multi-service packet capabilities, simplifies operations with the LightSoft® unified network management system and presents low total cost of ownership in a small footprint. ECI's LightSoft enables end-to-end access to long-haul provisioning with one system. Its multi-layer approach allows carriers to manage all technologies and network segments using a unified and centralized system, resulting in both capex and opex savings.

“ECI continues to strengthen its competitive edge in the North American market. We had a strong 2007 with our ROADM offerings and this product gives us a new platform to fuel our growth in this converged packet-optical market," commented Dave Robison, General Manager of ECI Telecom Americas.
