"PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom (NASDAQ:ECIL - News) today announced its BroadGate(TM)-20B, a miniature optical service access platform that functions as Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) for enterprises, utility companies and cellular operators. The BroadGate-20B is the entry-level unit featuring a scalable architecture that provides customers with the flexibility to easily add more interfaces and new services as needed, translating into significant savings in both operational and capital expenditures.

The BroadGate-20 provides telecom operators with a clear migration path from legacy services to new carrier-class data services based on its Layer 1 and Layer 2 Ethernet capabilities. For example, the highly flexible BroadGate-20 platform can be used for operating an electric company's own transmission network or operating PBX extensions between a main site and sub-stations.

Complementing the BroadGate-20B is the BroadGate-20E that includes unique expansion capabilities, which can be easily integrated into the platform. With the flexible expansion, telecom operators can easily add new interfaces and customize services from simple telephony up to Gigabit Ethernet. The BroadGate-20 eliminates the need to remove existing equipment or buy additional equipment as the unit itself can be easily expanded to convert interfaces for the SDH/SONET network.

With the growth in Ethernet data services, the BroadGate-20 allows customers to deliver an affordable mix of Ethernet, SDH/SONET, PDH and PCM services with complete Quality of Service (QoS) and Service Level Agreement (SLA) assurances.

Complete with ECI's LightSoft® network management system, the BroadGate-20 delivers full remote management capabilities with support for multiple interfaces and traffic types.

"Our latest miniature MSPP adds more functionality to the usual high flexibility we always offer our customers, providing operators with more options without the high costs or need for equipment replacement," said Eitan Yehuda, Vice President of Marketing for ECI Telecom's Optical Networking Division. "We believe the BroadGate-20 will greatly benefit utilities, enterprises and cellular operators looking to maximize services and savings for a lower initial cost and faster provisioning."
