Petah Tikva, Israel (PRWEB) September 30, 2008
ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, announced today that Current Analysis, a leading independent research firm, has ranked ECI's Hi-FOCuS™ Multi-Service Access Node (MSAN) as the top platform in the CO DSLAM category for the second consecutive year. The rating is based on five major buying criteria: scalability, standards, capacity, QoS support and pricing.
"ECI Telecom is being recognized for achieving the top overall ranking, based on the cumulative score across the five categories critical to customer purchase decisions. The Hi-FOCuS platform is distinguished by its unique service-enabling capabilities, high capacity and field-proven scalability," notes Erik Keith, Principal Analyst, Broadband Infrastructure, at Current Analysis, and author of the evaluation. "While this particular comparison evaluates platforms configured for CO DSLAM deployment applications, the Hi-FOCuS platform's broad array of interfaces, including support for both packet voice and FTTP, enables operators to deliver a full spectrum of next-generation fixed access services."
The Hi-FOCuS MSAN, part of ECI's recently announced 1Net business framework, is one of the most comprehensive fully multi-service broadband access platforms on the market today, simultaneously supporting data, video and voice over fibre and copper infrastructure. In the past year, the platform's superior quality of service attributes, traffic prioritization properties and advanced security capabilities, have contributed to a significant expansion of the Hi-FOCuS MSAN's customer base, with new accounts in Asia Pacific, the Former Soviet Union and Europe.
"This recognition underscores the importance we assign to innovation, efficiency and customer reverence. The Hi-FOCuS MSAN, as part of the 1Net framework, supports carriers' migration to next-generation networks, while leveraging their current infrastructure, leading to opex and capex savings," said Eyal Shaked, Executive Vice President and General Manager of ECI Telecom's Network Solutions Division.
