Jan. 18, 2001
Juniper Networks, Inc. and the Optical Networks division of ECI Telecom Ltd. announced they have jointly installed and tested China's first Optical Internet Protocol network using Juniper Networks Internet backbone routers and ECI Telecom's flexible DWDM systems for GuangDong PTA.

Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR), and the Optical Networks division of ECI Telecom Ltd. (NASDAQ:ECIL) recently launched as Lightscape Networks, announced they have jointly installed and tested China's first Optical Internet Protocol network using Juniper Networks Internet backbone routers and ECI Telecom's flexible DWDM systems (LumiNet) for GuangDong PTA. This network build-out will help accelerate Internet growth in the GuangDong Province which is investing over $400 million in Internet networking during the next five years.

The network, which includes LumiNet Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers, began carrying commercial traffic earlier this year in GuangDong, one of China's most prosperous provinces with 75 million people. The network includes Juniper Networks routers connected by Gigabit Ethernet.

ECI Telecom's IP-over-optics solution integrates Juniper Networks� M-series routers into its multi-bit rate transponder with tunable laser to support all types of traffic rates, including Gigabit Ethernet, OC48/STM-16 (2.5Gbit/s), OC12/STM-4 (622Mbit/s) and OC3/STM-1 (155 Mbit/s) over the same transponder card.

"ECI Telecom's Optical Network solutions provide this range of transmission speeds in order to eliminate our customers� reliance on multiple transponders to manage different bit rates and services," said Ido Gur, Product Marketing Director, Optical Networks at ECI Telecom.
