PETACH TIKVAH, Israel -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, has successfully participated in the MPLS and Carrier Ethernet multi-vendor interoperability event conducted by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC AG). ECI’s NPT platforms took part in the event to demonstrate interoperability with other IP/MPLS, MPLS-TP and Carrier Ethernet-based equipment. The test network focused this year on the latest advances in the industry, including IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP interworking, MPLS-TP OAM and packet-based clocking and synchronous Ethernet, which are critical for mobile backhaul over packet switched networks.
ECI’S NPT (NATIVE PACKET TRANSPORT) FAMILY
The NPT, part of ECI’s Optimized Multi-Layer Transport (OMLT) architecture, is a family of carrier-grade converged multiservice packet optical transport platforms, optimized for metro packet transport networks. The NPT is ECI’s packet based transport product line addressing operators’ need to build PTN (packet transport network) with the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). NPT offers a unique convergence of Carrier Ethernet, MPLS-TP, TDM and WDM in a single topology-neutral platform. As carrier-class packet transport, it combines transport network reliability and ease of management with packet efficiency, supporting the full scale of Ethernet/MPLS-TP and TDM services. With unprecedented architectural and protocol support flexibility, the NPT is part of ECI’s 1Net framework addressing the challenges our customers face when migrating from TDM to packet in high capacity metro sites. The NPT supports a broad range of applications, including wireless backhaul, utilities, carrier-of-carriers, business services, and residential triple play.
“Service providers are looking to MPLS technology and its
transport-related enhancements to solve many of the challenges facing
service providers in the access and aggregation sections of the network,
including how to plan a large-scale migration from circuit-switched to
packet transport. The goal of MPLS-TP is to simplify service providers'
transport network, lower TCO, and improve the economics of transporting
packet data with a simple-to-operate and resilient end-to-end packet
transport network. ECI Telecom is one of the most proactive vendors
supporting the extension of MPLS into access and aggregation networks
through MPLS-TP, and I expect to see it continuing aggressively to
position MPLS-TP as a key technology building block for service
providers' next-generation packet network infrastructure for both mobile
and wireline transport networks.”
Nav Chander, Research Manager, IDC
“As leaders in MPLS-TP implementation, we are pleased to take part in
the EANTC multi-vendor interoperability event. We see MPLS-TP as a key
enabler for extending MPLS into the metro and removing the barriers
preventing the build out of cost-effective, large scale packet transport
networks. ECI’s NPT product line addresses operators’ challenges by
providing an affordable, scalable and easy to manage packet transport
