Petah Tikva, Israel (PRWEB) February 26, 2008
ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure, announced today that it has been chosen by Tutor, a carrier of carriers in France, to deploy an end-to-end next-generation solution to support the city of Nancy (CUGN - "Communauté Urbaine du Grand Nancy") in the roll-out of an advanced fiber to the building(FTTB) network, one of the first in the country.
ECI's solutions will provide enterprises located in Nancy and nearby with advanced broadband and telecommunications services. ECI will deploy the XDM®-1000 and 2000 WDM solution, the ST®-50 for broadband aggregation, and the Hi-FOCuS™ Multiservice Access Node (MSAN) for Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON).
"ECI was the obvious choice for this project based on its comprehensive, end-to-end solutions," said Joel Peron, Président Directeur Général (CEO) of Tutor. "ECI's carrier-class capabilities offer us efficient high-bandwidth services from the core to the access of the network. Choosing one vendor for and end-to-end deployment provides us with the necessary simplicity and reliability now and for the long-term growth we expect."
"With the development of FTTH, municipalities all across Europe are interested in helping those rollouts by investing in telecom infrastructure, and offering their residents state-of-the-art capabilities," said Roland Montagne, Head of Broadband Practice at IDATE. "We expect that FTTx subscribers will represent around 27% of Western Europe's total Broadband base by 2015 and municipalities should play an important role in those future deployments."
"ECI has been at the forefront of fiber deployment in Europe, and we are proud to have been selected by Tutor to expand their network in Nancy (CUGN). Our end-to-end solutions and our expertise with carriers of carriers well position us to offer the most innovative and efficient, yet cost-effective, solutions to a carrier such as Tutor," said Thierry Berton, General Manager, South Europe. "We expect to continue to partner with Tutor as they expand their network over additional cities in France, such as Bourges or Amiens."
