ECI Telecom's Carrier Ethernet Switch Routers Receive 'Best New Product' Award from Light Reading

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor

ECI Telecom’s 9700 series of Carrier Ethernet Switch Routers (CESR) has been chosen as Light Reading’s (News - Alert) Leading Lights Award for the 2008 ‘Best New Product’ category.
The Israel-based global provider of networking infrastructure solutions said the 9700 series was selected for its highly innovative proposition and considerable value it offers service providers as they migrate to next-generation networks.
"The Leading Lights award for Best New Product recognizes the very best in innovation, engineering and technical excellence,” said Rafi Maor (News - Alert), president and CEO of ECI Telecom.
The state-of-the-art 9000 family of Carrier Ethernet Switch Routers, part of the company's recently announced 1Net business framework, provides operators with an optimal solution for Carrier Ethernet metro network deployment.
The platform's advanced features are designed to enable service providers to deploy a cost-effective Carrier Ethernet metro network infrastructure for efficient transport of Ethernet and IP-based services. The 9700 series delivers business and residential services in metropolitan core networks and combines transport-like ease-of-use with carrier grade reliability, providing industry-leading wire-speed Gigabit Ethernet density while meeting performance and quality of service requirements for metro networks.
“ECI’s 9700 series enables the deployment of profitable next-generation telecommunications services, and we are honored to receive this award.  This recognition from Light Reading is further validation that our solutions provide outstanding value for our customers.”
The 9000 family is managed with ECI’s LightSoft unified, multi-layer network management system, providing operators with a simplified solution for the management of Ethernet-based networks.
In March, ECI announced the 1Net comprehensive framework focused on delivering optimized transition solutions for network operators to next-generation networks. Fundamental to 1Net are flexible solutions that are able to address the unique and specific needs of each network operator. Its Carrier Ethernet solution – the 9000 Family – is the cornerstone of the 1Net proposition. Through ECI’s combination of innovative and multi-functional equipment, fully integrated solutions and agile approach to services, the company provides customers the highest level of flexibility as they evolve their networks.
Light Reading’s annual Leading Lights awards recognized the top private and public companies and their executives for their outstanding achievements in the communications industry.
