ECI Telecom Ltd announced the release of its enhanced multi-service provisioning platform (MSPP), which is said to enable cellular operators to scale up their networks to meet increasing subscriber demand.

According to ECI, the increasing demand for bandwidth and Ethernet-based services drives the need for high-capacity MSPP systems. The company claims that it offers service providers the largest low-order cross connect on the market with a smooth migration path from existing synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) networks to advanced optical transport networks (OTN).

Powered by a 120Gbps switching fabric and high-density service cards, ECI's XDM product line is said to allow cellular operators to deploy and grow 3G networks and to aggregate traffic from the edge to the core. Similarly, ILECs can optimize their network by grooming a mixture of TDM, ATM, Ethernet and IP, to the optical core backbone.

ECI said that the new feature set makes the XDM the first platform to optimally combine next-generation SDH with OTN networking. It provides software-configurable SDH/OTN interfaces that is said to eliminate the need for OTN transponders.

"Our commitment to the next-generation SDH market, together with our focus on optical transport networking, guide our efforts to offer our customers the solutions to bridge the gap between the TDM and packet worlds," said Eyal Shaked, executive vice president and general manager of ECI Telecom's optical networking division. "We're seeing enormous demand for these new capabilities and are committed to begin supplying them to several key accounts as early as the second quarter of 2006."
