ECI has inaugurated what the company promises will be an end-to-end 5G product portfolio with the 1022 cell site router. Described as an evolution of ECI’s Neptune line of packet metro platforms, the 1022 offers multi-service, flexible MPLS capabilities as well as support for network slicing, Class C and D synchronization, and open NetConf/Yang interfaces, says systems vendor.
The 1022 provides high capacity and the flexibility to support such 5G service types as enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low-latency communications (uRLLC), and massive machine-type communications (mMTC) in a deterministically assured manner, asserts ECI.
"As carriers prepare for the step change that 5G demands, we understand that the transition to a fully compliant 5G transport network can be both complex and capex heavy. That is why our solutions easily traverse the divide between current and future. We want customers to know that ECI is here to help them adjust their infrastructure effortlessly and cost-effectively," said Jimmy Mizrahi, ECI's executive vice president and head of global portfolio. "The 1022 marries form and function with its unique capabilities for easy migration, future-proof multi-service, and network slicing while ensuring carrier-grade redundancy and service assurance. Class C and D synch capabilities mean stringent timing control, and open interfaces ensure it can be deployed in any network, brownfield or green. This is the first of our 5G dedicated products and solutions to be launched. The rest will follow in the coming months."
