PETACH TIKVAH, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, announced today that the Israeli Electric Corporation (IEC) has selected the Apollo family of Optimized Multi-Layer Transport (OMLT) platforms, part of ECI’s 1Net packet-optical transport solutions, for its network connectivity needs. The Apollo OMLT brings increased capacity, flexibility and reliability for advanced data traffic services. As part of this deployment, the IEC ran a successful pilot of the platform’s 100G capabilities.
The IEC is deploying the Apollo OMLT to cope with its increasing capacity and communications needs.
During the 100G Apollo pilot, the IEC tested the platform’s ability to transmit 100 Gbit/s on a single wavelength. The pilot, considered a technological breakthrough for the IEC, introduced advanced capabilities in the company’s transmission network, increasing capacity by more than tenfold.
Apollo’s 100G capabilities will allow the company to implement broadband services across the board, through optimized utilization of existing resources.
