PETACH TIKVA, Israel, June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC Network® solutions, for service providers, critical infrastructures, and data centers operators, announced today it won the "Best Test & Measurement Product" award during the Next Generation Optical Networking (NGON) and Optical DCI 2017 conference for its LightPULSE™ intelligent wavelength management tool. The award honors innovative products that address technology, pricing, support and management in the optical networking industry, with awards judged by top experts in the industry.
LightPULSE allows service providers to accurately understand and monitor optical impairments in real time, as well as track changes and analyze trends in optical performance over time. The unique and comprehensive LightPULSE tools make monitoring easy, all at the click of a mouse. This includes next-generation photonic networks with CDC ROADMs, coherent technology, and 400G super-channels. As an embedded tool it allows any wavelength, whether ECI or third-party, to be securely monitored throughout its entire optical span, without interruption or using additional equipment. LightPULSE ensures a better quality of service, OPEX reduction with fewer truck rolls and equipment investments, and an overall reduction of errors through dynamic and ongoing readjustments and troubleshooting capabilities.
"Monitoring and measuring optical performance is a mainstay of any optical network, but performing wavelength management across vendors, topologies and platforms has often required specialized equipment, dispatching personnel, and frequent interruption to services - until now," said Jimmy Mizrahi, executive vice president, Global Portfolio at ECI. "We are honored to receive this award in recognition for LightPULSE, which is enabling the real-time measurement and monitoring of optical performance. ECI was shortlisted for more awards than many of the competitors, an achievement which recognizes our innovation in the optical networking space."
In addition to the award for best test and measurement product, ECI was shortlisted for three other awards, including best optical product for DCI short reach, best optical product 400G and above, and best overall multi-layer SDN controller implementation.
This is yet another achievement for ECI this year. Additional achievements so far in 2017 include the 2017 IMPACT award for Software by UTC (Utilities Technology Council), as well as being named a finalist in a variety of Leading Lights Awards from Light Reading, including "Women in Comms" and "Outstanding Communications Technology Vision."
