ECI Selected for National Packet-Optical Network in Poland

ATM S.A., a leading integrator and carrier of carriers in Poland, has selected ECI's optical solution to build its first national converged TDM-packet-DWDM backbone network.

Specifically, ATM is deploying ECI's flagship XDM line of MultiService Transport Platforms (MSTP) to upgrade its existing optical network, initially in four cities in Southern Poland. The XDM's All-Range WDM optics, supporting a full range of distances from metro access to regional and long haul, will be used by ATM to bridge very long fiber spans and to expand the network into other parts of Poland in 2008. In addition, the XDM's feature-set of optical transport network (OTN) mapping and multiplexing will ensure highest transparency, quality of service and multi-vendor interoperability for all SDH and data services, including 10GE LAN.
