Ekinops Supplies Optical Transport for Bezeq

Bezeq, Israel's largest telecommunications service provider, will deploy the Ekinops 360 optical transport and DWDM platform to connect key Bezeq sites in the north and south of the country. The solution is being supplied in partnership with Rotal Networks. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"Half of the country is already connected to the new NGN and in 2011 we expect to reach 80 percent" said Mr. Itzik Cohen, director of transport and data engineering at Bezeq. "Every week thousands of new homes are being connected and we need to have the optical backbone to support this growth."
