"ECI Telecom has established itself as a strong and innovative contender in IPTV access with its Hi-FOCuS MSAN platform, especially in the APAC and EMEA regions, where it has been deployed in some of the leading IPTV networks," said Prayerna Raina, Research Analyst, Information & Communication Technologies Practice of Frost & Sullivan. "Its multi-service access platform is a strong indication of the company's commitment to being a leading vendor in the IPTV access space by providing comprehensive features and a future-proof solution."

ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has received Frost & Sullivan's 2008 Product Differentiation Innovation Award for the World IPTV Access Infrastructure market. Frost & Sullivan awarded ECI for the company's Hi-FOCuS™ Multi-Service Access Node (MSAN), as well as its product differentiation and commitment to innovation and future-proof capabilities.

ECI's Hi-FOCuS platform is a key element of ECI's 1Net business framework, which provides an optimized path for network transition for carriers worldwide. The Hi-FOCuS' future-proof capabilities are attractive to customers, as they can gradually introduce new services, while guaranteeing support for legacy services.

"We are truly pleased to be commended by Frost & Sullivan for our innovative edge and leadership in the IPTV access market. ECI continually strives to take our products to the next level, anticipating the needs of our customers and delivering solutions that maintain the highest of standards. This recognition further validates our successful Hi-FOCuS MSAN line and the value it offers our customers for current and future network deployments," said Tony Scarfo, Chief Strategy Officer of ECI Telecom.

As of August 2008, Frost & Sullivan expects that the world IPTV access infrastructure market is poised for solid growth at a robust double digit CAGR from CY 2008 to CY 2014 with revenues estimated to reach shy of four and a half billion dollar mark as evidenced by increased activity in fiber roll-outs. This was driven primarily by existing and potential consumer video services that are best delivered via a high-bandwidth fiber infrastructure, and the intense competition among communication service providers.

ECI will be formally honored with the 2008 Global Product Differentiation Award at Frost & Sullivan's 2009 Excellence in Information & Communication Technologies Awards Banquet on January 22, 2009 in San Antonio, Texas.
