Korea's DACOM Deploys ECI's XDM Optical Platform

DACOM Corporation, one of the largest telecommunications providers in Korea, has completed deployment of ECI Telecom's XDM multi-service provisioning platform for its new national backbone and metro networks. The networks connect Jungdong, Kyoung, Chung, Kangbuk, Yoeui, and Kangnam. They also connect KIDC, one of the most advanced data centers in Asia.

ECI's converged multi-service platform includes combiner cards that can aggregate services to save on channels. The deployment enables DACOM to support transparent wavelengths of up to 10 Gbps and to scale the network by adding new cards. The contract is valued at USD$3.6 million for the first deployment, with an option for extensive expansion over the next few years.

DACOM previously deployed ECI's XDM platform in Pusan in 2003.
