ECI Delivers on Native Packet Transport

Packet optical transport products were introduced to the market to handle the ever increasing packet traffic in an affordable manner by lowering the cost of transported bit.  However, simple and low-cost packet-based equipment may lack carrier-grade transport attributes. Adding attributes such as protection, redundancy and resiliency to packet-based products has proven to be more difficult than expected, often resulting in higher capital costs related to addressing these requirements.

Managing large-scale networks also has proven to be more expensive than anticipated and operators have started to conduct thorough total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis for their networks, which provide evidence that operation expense (OpEx) is an important factor that impacts overall considerations. In addition, although Ethernet services are growing rapidly, it has become clear that mixed traffic is still running over most networks, and this situation is not expected to change in the foreseeable future. Consequently, operators have found that the overall cost of a packet-based transport network is more expensive than initially anticipated.
