ECI Telecom Selected by Triton Telecom for Multi-Million Dollar Fiber Network Deployment for Caribbean

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor



Networking infrastructure solutions provider ECI Telecom (News - Alert) landed another big client this week when Triton Telecom chose its 9000 Carrier Ethernet Switch Router (CESR) family and the XDM Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP).
 
Triton Telecom, a subsidiary of Cobian International Group, is expected to use the platform for a multi-million dollar network project spanning the distance of Florida, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.
 
The 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, according to Joanne Negron, CEO of Cobian International.
 
“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,” said Negron.

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.  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.
 
“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 Negron.
 
In addition to supplying the infrastructure, ECI is also contributing to the overall design and planning of the project.  The project is expected to be completed in May 2009.
 
"We are excited to be part of this industry-first network project. Our build-as-you-grow network offerings are reliable and successful in delivering next-generation services while managing high-capacity traffic, and supporting existing infrastructure,” said Dave Robison, General Manager of the Americas, of ECI Telecom.
