PETACH TIKVAH, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, today announced that it has successfully transported non-regenerated 100G traffic, via the Jonah international submarine cable, owned by Bezeq International, Israel’s leading telecommunications company. The data was transmitted by the Apollo OMLT over a total distance of 4,600 km, from Tel Aviv to Bari, Italy and back. “ECI once again demonstrated the powerful performance of our innovative coherent technology with SD-FEC algorithms by transmitting 100G link over Bezeq International's submarine cable for 4,600Km with no regeneration. The 100G channels from the Apollo OMLT allow submarine cable operators to increase significantly the network capacity over expensive links with minimal network adjustment. ECI already deployed and trialed 100G solutions in various customer networks and now we also displayed our capability over submarine cables,” said Eran Dariel, GM Portfolio Business, ECI Telecom
