Motorola and ECI Telecom Form Broadband Access Partnership

Motorola and ECI Telecom announced a new strategic relationship pairing ECI's IP DSLAM portfolio with Motorola's Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) and Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) solutions. The multi-year agreement provides Motorola access to ECI's portfolio of carrier-class access infrastructure products including Outside Plant (OSP) and Central Office (CO) IP DSLAM solutions. Specifically, the deal gives Motorola the global rights to brand, market, and sell ECI's portfolio of access infrastructure solutions. Motorola will be investing in integration of these platforms into their current Ultra-Broadband access portfolio and hence will have an exclusivity period for the North American market.

ECI's IP DSLAM features an IP/Ethernet switching fabric and deep Quality-of-Service (QoS) assurance capabilities.
