PETACH TIKVA, Israel, September 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC Network® solutions for service providers, critical infrastructures and data center operators, announced today that it will exhibit its ElastiGRID™ solution for utilities and critical infrastructures at the European Utility Telecom Conference (EUTC) 2016 Annual Conference in Frankfurt, Germany.
The utility sector is currently undergoing many changes, such as IT/OT convergence, the move to more vulnerable TCP/IP networks, and migration to newer, packet-based systems. Understanding these challenges, ECI has developed a solution which enables risk-free migration to modern, packet-based systems while remaining future-proof for tomorrow's requirements. This solution has stood the test of time with hundreds of deployments worldwide, including in many of Europe's biggest TSOs.
ECI's Neptune (NPT) is the de-facto standard for network modernization for the utility sector with a unique combination of packet switch fabric, OTN capabilities and a native TDM matrix, in a single, powerful and scalable platform. The NPT combines five 9s performance and reliability with packet efficiency. It also features Elastic (dual stack) MPLS to support both MPLS-TP and IP/MPLS protocols.
Unique to ECI, the NPT offers an optional embedded NFV blade, which is also available as a stand-alone appliance. When paired with ECI's LightSEC™ cyber security solutions, ECI provides consolidated, secured communications tailored for utilities. For example, LightSEC offers a state-of-the-art SCADA protection solution with leading SCADA aware visibility, anomaly detection and firewall which can be deployed anywhere in the network.
"ECI has been successfully working for many years in the utilities and mission critical infrastructure sector, winning as many as 4 out of every 5 bids. Our strong win-ratio is based on trust and confidence developed over decades. ECI's ElastiGRID solution has proven a clear plus for utilities. And now, with the addition of our award winning LightSEC cyber security solution, we are boosting our offering to the next level," said Christian Erbe, Head of Municipality, Utility & Government Sector fore ECI EMEA.
ECI will be showcasing its award winning Packet-Optical solutions and LightSEC solutions at EUTC September 27 - 30, 2016, booth # 3.
