ECI Telecom Selected to Manage Transmission Network in the Philippines

Smart Communications, Inc. (SMART), the largest wireless services provider in the Philippines, has awarded ECI Telecom a two-year managed services contract for its nationwide transmission network. Under the agreement, ECI will provide SMART with multi-vendor network management services for the operator's transmission Network Operations Center (NOC), including 24/7 network surveillance, fault management and maintenance.

The agreement follows a decade-long relationship between the two companies for the delivery of network equipment solutions, supporting SMART's nationwide transmission backbone, and is a strong proof-point of ECI's 1Net framework.

"This is an important project for ECI as the company continues to solidify its position as a full-fledged Managed Services provider. We offer SMART and all of our customers a path to optimize their operational capabilities, enabling them to deliver on time and on budget, while maintaining the highest service level," commented Rafi Maor, CEO and President of ECI Telecom.
