PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom, global provider of networking infrastructure solutions optimized for next-generation network migration, today announced that Smart Communications, Inc. (SMART), the largest wireless services provider in the Philippines, has awarded ECI a two-year managed services contract for its nationwide transmission network. SMART is looking to ECI to manage its increasingly complex network, to ensure high availability and improved network performance.

The agreement follows a decade-long relationship between the two companies for the delivery of network equipment solutions, supporting SMART's nationwide transmission backbone, and is a strong proof-point of ECI's 1Net framework. 1Net underscores ECI's commitment to providing operators beyond equipment-based solutions, to include turnkey programs and professional and managed services, offering them the highest level of support as they transition to next-generation networks.

"Outsourcing network management operations to a vendor like ECI can benefit SMART with preventative maintenance, proactive troubleshooting, and more efficient network design. This should allow SMART to better leverage its network capacity, improving cost-efficiencies and enabling it to deliver enhanced service level agreements to its customers," said John Marcus, Senior Analyst at Current Analysis.

“Having worked with ECI for many years, it made sense to partner with a proven and innovative vendor who can allow us to focus on our core business, and continue to deliver superior, wireless services to customers across the Philippines,” said Napoleon L. Nazareno, President and CEO of SMART.
