ECI Telecom Ltd. Key Developments

ECI Announces the Launch of its Hybrid Virtualization Platform

ECI announced the launch of its Hybrid Virtualization Platform designed to support multiple NFV-based use cases to help communication service providers (CSPs) simplify operations, increase agility, reduce OPEX and provide better SLAs. By supporting delay-sensitive services, and offering better security and termination of flows at the network edge, the platform supports a variety of applications including modernized business services, as well as future needs driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G. The platform features ECI's vE-CPE family, which is set to provide virtualization across customer premises (uCPE) and service provider's Edge PoP (MEC). Networks are a complex array of customized hardware, making it costly and time consuming for CSPs to maintain. Launching new services often requires significant operational investments in planning and provisioning hardware and infrastructure. The adoption of virtualized infrastructure, where key network functions run as software (VNFs) on commercial computing platforms, eliminates these hurdles. ECI's hybrid solution affords CSPs the following benefits: Flexibility; Agility; Shortened time to market; Reduced OPEX. Mercury is designed to address fixed, mobile and converged networks. The platform takes the pressure off the network core by increasing the capabilities and intelligence of MEC (Mobile Edge Computing) all the way to the customer premise, via universal customer premise equipment (uCPE), or to the eNodeB. ECI's Hybrid Virtualization Platform delivers a broad range of modular applications. Since it is based on open industry standard architecture, CSPs can easily integrate it into current operations, enjoy end-to-end orchestration and incorporate third-party software. In addition to this, ECI helps defer entry costs with a "pay-as-you-grow" flexible subscription model. The platform is comprised of: ECI's Mercury™ NFVi platform - Available as both a stand-alone appliance or as a blade that can be fully integrated into the Neptune packet-optical transport system; Open Source NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO) - ETSI-compliant (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) MANO, which runs ECI's carrier-grade PaaS system; Growing library of virtualized network functions (VNFs) - A library of best of breed VNFs, including edge routing, sessions border control, WAN optimization, LAN monitoring, caching.

ECI to Showcase New Neptune Packet Capabilities at MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress in Paris

ECI announced that it will showcase new Neptune™ packet capabilities at MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress in Paris this week, March 20-24, 2017. These capabilities are particularly important to the future evolution of Metro networks. ECI demonstrated Neptune's capabilities successfully in the Interoperability Showcase organized by EANTC (European Advanced Networking Test Center). Interoperability is in line with ECI's ELASTIC Network Strategy which seeks to provide open, vendor agnostic and secure tailored solutions, which are flexible enough to adapt as needs change. Every year, vendors meet at the interoperability showcase to participate in a variety of tests and schemes dedicated to attest to the interoperability of networking solutions. This year ECI participated in tests that best highlighted this openness and interoperability, namely the Remote Loop Free Alternative Fast Reroute (LFA FRR) test and device configuration via NETCONF/YANG. ECI's solutions will be displayed at EANTC's interoperability showcase during MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress in Paris. ECI experts will be on hand at booths 211/212 to further explain about ECI's packet solutions for the metro and beyond.
