Presented annually, the Lightwave Innovation Reviews program distinguishes top products and solutions available within the optical networking industry as determined by a panel of third-party judges. This year's judges included industry executives and analysts from a variety of service providers, technology developers, industry analysts and journalists.

"On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate the outstanding winners," said Lightwave Group Publisher Christine Shaw. "The 2019 program was competitive, and the top scoring companies exemplify innovation in the optical networking industry." The panel of judges awarded the TM1200 a high score saying: "Some competitors match the product's bandwidth efficiency, while others match the product's flexible control, but the product's combination of these two optical networking features is leading." Products that achieve such scores are deemed 'superb products that set new standards for performance and provide groundbreaking and new technical milestones'.

"We are honored to receive this Lightwave Innovation Reviews Program Award for our TM1200 1.2T Dual Channel Blade, which allows for a truly programmable, adaptive optical network," said ECI Head of Global Portfolio, Jimmy Mizrahi. "The high score and notable comments exemplify the TM1200 as a cutting-edge system for the new age of networking, and represent ECI's continued efforts to deliver optimal solutions for today and tomorrow. It's the incorporation of these technologies that make our offering so strong, and it's no wonder our optical product line sales have grown so quickly in the last couple of years."

The TM1200 delivers unmatched spectral efficiency and elasticity through software-controllable continuous modulation. Moreover, it maimizes capacity in a granular manner to best match client needs and variable channel conditions. Furthermore, ECI's programmable-adaptive optical network approach improves the return on fiber investment, enhances the adaptability of the optical layer, and improves power efficiency.

This is the second time in a row that ECI received an award in the Lightwave Innovation Reviews. Last year, ECI won in the same category for its TM200EN encryption as a service card. This award joins a growing list of accolades ECI has received. Last year, ECI won awards for "MEF3.0 Implementation" at MEF2018, the "Best Multi-layer SDN Controller" award during Next Generation Optical Networking (NGON) and Optical DCI 2018, and of course, the Lightwave Innovation Review Award mentioned. In fact, virtually all of ECI's product families and solutions have been recognized in a variety of industry awards over the last couple of years.

The TM1200 is compatible with all Apollo DWDM transport systems. To see more of the Apollo product line, visit:
