ECI Telecom Ltd. Key Developments

ECI to Showcase Expertise in Utility Sector at EUTC 2016

ECI announced 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 SCADA protection solution with the SCADA aware visibility, anomaly detection and firewall which can be deployed anywhere in the network.

ECI Adds ELASTIC Analytics™ to Suite of ELASTIC Network Services

ECI announced the introduction of ELASTIC Analytics™ services. These new services employ advanced algorithms, machine learning and big data analytics to arm network operations and planning departments with the insights to properly maintain, design and re-engineer their networks. This true, multi-vendor service yields a comprehensive, end-to-end view for improved multi-layer optimization, reduced costs and ensured service availability, all imperative for today's networks as well as the advanced networks of tomorrow. Currently two ELASTIC Analytics services are being offered: Multi-Layer Traffic Engineering and Optimization and Preventive Maintenance. Multi-Layer Traffic Engineering and Optimization uses multiple sources of data, big data analytics and machine learning in a GIS based method to deliver insights that enable network architects to more intelligently build their networks, reclaim their resources and ensure new services are smoothly introduced. It provides better visibility of single points of failure (SPOF) as well as bottlenecks and can predict the impact of pending failures. This helps network engineers to provision services, offset traffic congestion and optimize network efficiency. Predictive Maintenance conducts daily audits of every element in the network, ECI or third party, starting at the embedded level. It provides network operators with insight on how their systems are running and recommends corrective actions to achieve optimal results. The early warnings provided by this real-time intelligence can be used to pre-empt pending faults and failures, so service availability is ensured. Meeting and exceeding SLAs is guaranteed by identifying and eliminating potential network threats. This improves the overall customer experience and substantially strengthens customer loyalty.

ECI Introduces New Lambda On Demand Capabilities to its LightAPPS Family of SDN Applications

ECI announced the enhancement of its LightCONNECT bandwidth on demand app with Lambda on Demand capabilities. This is another, in a growing line of SDN applications and enhanced networking capabilities, which the company has launched over the last year under the umbrella of LightAPPS. Lambda on demand is designed to provide optical networks with 'on demand' capabilities. ECI's LightCONNECT app provides bandwidth on demand for dynamic services and bursty applications. LightCONNECT enables customers to allocate the required bandwidth 'on demand', as needs change, but without long provisioning cycles. Lambda on demand affords the same deliverables to optical networks like ECI's Apollo, by allocating the necessary number of wavelengths at the designated time. This will shorten service turn up time on both packet and optical networks. LightCONNECT means that it is no longer necessary to rely on over-provisioning. In addition, LightCONNECT's agile APIs support both OTN and Lambda to dynamically create, modify, and delete optical network connections and bandwidth allocations as necessary to reduce TTM of new service introduction. At TNC 2016, ECI's lambda on demand as well as its 400G capabilities will be demonstrated in conjunction with CESNET at booth #1.
