According to ECI Telecom, the multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)-enhanced BroadGate (BG) platform complements ECI’s MPLS-based and MEF-certified platforms, the XDM family of multi-service provisioning platforms (MSPPs) and the 9000 family of carrier ethernet switch routers (CESR), delivering access to core, carrier-class ethernet services. The entire product line is centrally managed by ECI’s LightSoft unified network management system.
Alon Moshes, head of MSPP line of business at ECI Telecom, said: Today’s service providers are looking for scalable and flexible platforms to support the gradual migration to all-IP networks. By enhancing the BG with MPLS capabilities, we round out our MPLS offerings for our entire transport product line, from core to access. This demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with future-proof solutions as well as the flexibility to migrate to packet-based networks at their own pace, making additional investments only as business cases mature.
Earlier in October, Metrosystems has selected ECI Telecom for carrier ethernet services.
