OCTOBER 20, 2010 -- ČD-Telematika a.s. (CD-T) has selected ECI Telecom to develop and implement a national optical network across the Czech Republic, ECI Telecom says. The new network has been designed to enable CD-T to significantly increase bandwidth capacity, better route data traffic on the network, and provide highly reliable services over resilient optical infrastructure spread country wide.

CD-T currently operates over 3,500 km of fiber-optic lines throughout the country, supporting the second largest IP network in the Czech Republic. CD-T provides services to large customers such as Czech Railways and its subsidiaries, as well as many telecom operators, including the operator of the CESNET academic network and other public administration bodies.

Deployment of CD-T’s nationwide optical backbone was concluded in five weeks. It leverages ECI’s XDM Next-Generation Optical Networking Platform, which offers 40x40-Gbps fully tunable channels, multi-degree WSS ROADMs, and OTN layer support.

"We selected ECI’s XDM solution for its field-proven reliability and the flexibility it provides as a future-proof platform, providing sufficient capacity for data-intensive services and enables us to better innovate and expand our offerings moving forward,” said Jeronym Prochazka, Project Manager, CD–Telematika a.s. “Having established a strong mutual relationship during the seven years, we are confident in the company's technological leadership and exceptional service support.”
