Bezeq International Deploys the First 100G Optical Network in Israel, with ECI Telecom’s Apollo Packet-Optical Transport System

ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, today announced that Bezeq International, Israel’s leading telecommunications company, has deployed Israel’s first 100G optical network, using ECI’s Apollo packet-optical transport system.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Bezeq International caters to numerous large enterprise and business customers, who demand increasing speed and capacity, while also providing for disaster recovery contingencies. The new network is now serving these customers, alleviating capacity bottlenecks during high-usage times.
  • The 100G optical links are used to aggregate ten channels of 10G over a single wavelength, including Ethernet, FC and SDH channels, providing a cost-effective tenfold increase in network capacity.
  • This deployment follows the 100G trial carried out in March 2013 over Bezeq International’s live operational submarine fiber. The trial, conducted in conjunction with the Tera Santa Consortium, as part of its research on long-distance adaptive coherent channel behavior, demonstrated the advanced capabilities of ECI 100G transmission system and technologies in compensating for non-linear channel impairments and chromatic dispersion utilizing advanced SD-FEC algorithms.
  • The Apollo 100G service cards, already deployed by many customers worldwide, bring significant capacity increase to the optical cable, relieving traffic congestion and enabling new applications.

EXPERT PERSPECTIVES
“Deploying 100G was a natural evolution to Bezeq International, as we continue to address our customers’ demands for better and more cost-effective services. Over the years, ECI has proved itself to be a reliable and responsive partner, meeting our needs for advanced technology, platforms and services.”
Sagi Kozuch, CTO, Bezeq International

“Bezeq International is once again a pioneer in Israel with the deployment of the first 100G network in the country. Its customers will be the main beneficiary of the many advantages this network will bring, such as increased capacity, speed, reliability and disaster-recovery capabilities. The Apollo brings a cost-effective solution for operators around the world who are looking for better ways to serve their enterprise and residential customers.”
Mickey Wilf, Head of APAC & Middle East Regional Business Units, ECI Telecom
