Bezeq has selected Ekinops to provide optical transport
equipment to connect key Bezeq sites in the north and south of Israel.
Bezeq is deploying Next Generation technology to support
a population known for its appetite for cutting edge technology and high-speed
Internet. We are very proud to be a part of their NGN network.
Ekinops and its partner, Rotal Networks, provided Bezeq
with a state-of-the art optical transport and DWDM platform, the Ekinops 360.
Bezeq is leveraging the platform’s superior optical performance to maximize the
capacity of its fiber network.
Bezeq has been on
a multi-year mission to upgrade its network and deploy an advanced NGN (Next
Generation Network) to support new high-speed broadband services and advanced
IP telephony services to its residential and business customers.
Half of the country is already connected to the new NGN
and in 2011 we expect to reach 80 percent. Every week thousands of new homes
are being connected, and we need to have the optical backbone to support this
“The Ekinops 360
platform is a cost-effective, carrier-class solution that allows us to
consolidate many fibers into one, freeing up fiber cables for other revenue
opportunities. It’s a very attractive business case,” said Itzik Cohen,
director of transport and data engineering, Bezeq.
The new network optimizes Bezeq’s existing optical
infrastructure by consolidating data traffic from multiple fiber optic cables
onto a single cable using DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing)
This allows Bezeq to reclaim and reuse its fiber cables.
The network carries 10G Ethernet, 2.5G SDH, and Gigabit Ethernet services and
can deliver speeds of up to 400 Gb/s per fiber cable, lowering operating costs
and conserving fiber.
The architecture of the network is based on the Ekinops
360 platform, the company’s line of multiprotocol muxponders, and Ekinops’
industry-leading DynaFEC Forward Error Correction technology. This enables
Bezeq to achieve greater distance with no regeneration.
Bezeq is investing a significant amount of capital and
resources to maintain its leadership position. Bezeq is deploying Next
Generation technology to support a population known for its appetite for
cutting edge technology and high-speed Internet. We are very proud to be a part
of their NGN network,”said Jonathan Amir, vice president, global sales,
