Neotel South Africa Selects ECI Telecom's XDM Platform

Neotel, the first national infrastructure-based competitor in the fixed-line telecommunications sector in South Africa, has selected ECI Telecom's XDM and BroadGate (BG) line of products to support its network rollout in the country. Neotel's next-generation transport network will support both enterprise and residential customers with voice, data and internet services. Financial terms were not disclosed.

ECI said it will provide a full access-to-core solution for all of Neotel's transmission requirements by deploying the XDM and the BG families of products. The network is managed via ECI's centralized LightSoft Network Management System, providing an end-to-end multi-layer management solution, from access to core.

Spescom Telecommunications, ECI's local partner in South Africa, is providing installation and integration services.
