PETACH TIKVAH, Israel, September 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC network solutions for service providers, utilities and data center operators, announced today an impressive win for the SmartLIGHT™ solution. After a vigorous bid process, a significant service provider located in South East Asia has selected ECI to roll out a turn-key, new 'greenfield' network.
The goal is to put an elastic infrastructure in place; one which is able to cope with both current as well as future service requirements. The SmartLIGHT solution combines the benefits of an industry-proven, advanced transport network with the new world of Software Defined Networking (SDN) applications. This solution includes the Apollo and Neptune Packet-Optical transport systems, LightSOFT™ network management system and LightAPPS™ SDN applications.
ECI's Apollo and Neptune Packet-Optical transport systems have been selected to build a seamless end-to-end network. The Apollo product line combines high performance, low-latency, OTN transport and switching, with software configurable optical routing. This provides the perfect network backbone solution. The Neptune family of carrier-class, MPLS based, multi-service packet transport platforms, provides the ideal edge solution for delivering business services and ensuring high availability connectivity for internal needs.
"The combination of OTN switching and ASON/WSON turns this network into an intelligent network, which guarantees highest service availability and meeting SLAs. To drive this even further, ECI's unique LightAPPS™ suite was introduced as a first step towards network automation and optimization. ECI is ramping up its SDN activity around the world and getting excellent feedback," stated Alon Moshes, Head of Packet-Optical LOB and Vertical Solutions, Global Portfolio Division.
LightAPPS offer a strategic way to maximize the potential of current networks by adding visibility and automation while reducing time to market for new revenue generating services. Moreover, LightAPPS can be rolled out on both standard transport networks, as well as future SDN networks. This is another win for ECI's LightAPPS, which reinforces ECI's leadership position in the SDN applications space.
LightINSIGHT™, LightCONNECT™ and LightTIME™ are applications which facilitate network visibility and control by offering real-time tools and an intuitive management dashboard. All the layers of the network infrastructure can be protected by LightSEC™ - ECI's comprehensive cyber security suite.
As a next step, the network will be further upgraded by adding ECI's LightCONTROL™ SDN controller. "Introducing additional SDN capabilities, like a centralized, multi-layer PCE (Path Computing Engine) to the underlying intelligent infrastructure, will enable our customers to stay at the forefront of innovation and constantly adapt to the ever changing needs of both their business and residential customers," stated Mickey Wilf, General Manager of ECI APAC.
