8 December 2003 Petah Tikva, Israel Lightwave -- China United Telecommunications Corp. (China Unicom) has deployed ECI Telecom's XDM MultiService Provisioning Platform (MSPP) within its Beijing Branch. As part of a wider network expansion project, ECI's XDM platforms have been installed and are running live traffic throughout the local networks of the Beijing Branch and surrounding suburbs. Further network development is expected to continue throughout 2004 and beyond.

"Rapid growth in demand for cellular services has provided Beijing Unicom with a unique opportunity to expand its network capability, extend its services portfolio, and increase its revenues and customer base," reports Ido Gur, vice president of sales and marketing, ECI's Optical Networks Division. "ECI Telecom's XDM equipment provides Beijing Unicom with a field-proven, mature solution that is both flexible and cost-effective, enabling it to generate new revenues now and remain ahead of the competition."

ECI's XDM platforms have been installed within the local network of China Unicom's Beijing Branch to build and extend the downtown and suburb rings in the access and consolidation layers. The enhanced network infrastructure will enable the Beijing Branch to maintain a highly reliable, flexible, and cost-effective transmission network for the delivery of next generation services to its customer base. The XDM MSPP converges intelligent optical networking capabilities with advanced data functionality, including ATM and Ethernet Layer 2 over SDH/SONET, CWDM, and DWDM. Further discussions between ECI and Beijing Unicom are currently underway regarding the development of pure optical metro networks for the future.
