PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, today announced that its 9000 Carrier Ethernet Switch Router (CESR) family and the XDMR Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP) have been selected by Triton Telecom, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cobian International Group Inc., for a multi-million dollar network project spanning the distance of Florida, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. This network is the first in the region to use submarine cable based on a native 10 Gigabits (10G) system, supporting up to 40G per channel, and significantly improving bandwidth capacity and service delivery to customers.

The platforms, both part of ECI's 1Net business framework, will deliver IP traffic across the Caribbean, supporting the growing bandwidth requirements in the region. The 1Net framework supports optimized migration to next-generation networks. As such, the 9000 CESR and XDM platforms will provide Triton with an end-to-end transport solution, supporting both legacy SONET/SDH capabilities along with new IP traffic requirements with speeds of 10 Gig and beyond. Both platforms help reduce operational and capital expenditures while meeting the requirements of working with existing and future technologies.

"Based on the need for more data capacity and new video services in the region, we anticipate 31 percent growth per year in bandwidth requirements. ECI's forward-looking roadmap showed their ability to keep us at a competitive edge in this fast-paced environment and provided us with an optimal carrier Ethernet and MSPP solution that was innovative, cost-effective and future-proof," said Joanne Negron, CEO of Cobian International.
