CEPM Selects ECI Telecom for Deployment of New Optical Network in the Dominican Republic
--ECI's XDM(R) next-generation platform chosen to meet growing demand for bandwidth in the Dominican Republic--

ECI Telecom, a global provider of networking infrastructure solutions, today announced that Consorcio Energético Punta Cana–Macao (CEPM), a privately-owned energy consortium, has selected ECI’s optical solution as it enters the rapidly growing telecommunications market in the Dominican Republic. CEPM is building a new fiber network and has chosen ECI to deliver the optical infrastructure to support the required flexibility to meet increased traffic demands.

Utilizing ECI’s XDM Multi-Service Provisioning and Transport Platform (MSPP/MSTP) solution, CEPM is entering the carrier of carriers business, providing more opportunities to its customers to leverage increased bandwidth needs. CEPM will provide transport capacity from the Caribbean NAP, located in the Parque Cibernético Santo Domingo, to the eastern most part of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana. ECI will supply CEPM and its customers with WDM, SONET and Ethernet capabilities to improve traffic and increase the number of available services to the surrounding and expanding resorts and airports.

“As CEPM entered the telecom market, we realized that ECI would be the best partner for us to meet the growing demands for bandwidth and new services in the region,” said Rolando Gonzalez-Bunster, President of CEPM. “ECI’s XDM platform provides the most cost-effective solution for an efficient migration to next-generation networks, enabling increased transport capabilities for our new fiber network and improving connectivity across the country. We look forward to working together as this network continues to develop and we approach the next expansion phase.”

ECI’s XDM is a cost effective, easy to operate solution that offers the flexibility and scalability necessary for growing markets. CEPM’s deployment of ECI‘s XDM strengthens its competitive edge while increasing its ability to respond to growing bandwidth requirements as they arise.

“CEPM’s selection of our XDM platform demonstrates the continuous success of our optical solutions, as well as our suitability for a range of different markets,” commented Rafi Maor, CEO & President of ECI Telecom. “ECI's experience in the carrier of carriers' market will serve us well as we support CEPM in its expansion into this business, and we will be able to provide them with a smooth migration path for their needs and the present and future requirements of their customers.”
