ECI Telecom has been awarded a $6 million order by a major Philippines Carrier, for the delivery of its XDM converged-optical-network solution.

The Philippines are a chain of Islands and undersea cabling is required to connect them. The carrier was looking to lower the costs of expensive undersea connectivity without losing quality. ECI devised a system using Raman technology that utilizes the fiber as the amplification media instead of costly underwater amplifiers. The solution provided by ECI allows the carrier to manage longer distances at a lower cost and offer next-generation, revenue-generating services at competitive prices, according to the company.

Avi Tenenbaum, president of the Asia Pacific regional business unit, said, "This network follows a series of successful network deployments by ECI in the Philippines and enhances our reputation for excellent technology and service."
