ECI Telecom company Lightscape Networks has signed a contract with a subsidiary of China Unicom, China's second largest mobile communications company. Zhejiang Unicom, which has approximately 1.3 million subscribers throughout the Chinese province of Zhejiang and accounts for 10% of China Unicom's business, is expanding its GSM network using Lightscape Networks' scalable XDM optical platform.

Zhejiang Unicom's GSM mobile communications operation, launched in 1995, is responsible for telecommunications infrastructure as well as network and business operations. The cellular operator is investing in next-generation optical networking equipment in the metropolitan area network to meet growing demand for data, long distance, and other value-added communications services.

Per the agreement, Lightscape Networks' XDM platforms will be deployed in the nodes of all existing Mobile Switching Centres across Zhejiang Unicom's GSM network, using their built-in digital cross-connect and multi-add/drop multiplexing functionalities to increase the networks' capacity for voice traffic. Eventually, the network will expand to provide full cover for three cities in Zhejiang, including Hangzhou, Taizhou, and Jiaxing. One of the key objectives for the program is to develop a highly scalable infrastructure capable of fully supporting existing customers, accommodating new subscribers, and offering a migration path to next-generation services as and when required.

Lightscape Networks' XDM platform features digital cross-connects, flexible ADM operating systems, and high-capacity WDM within a single device.

Zhejiang Unicom, founded in 1995, is a subsidiary of China Unicom in the Zhejiang province and is primarily responsible for the construction of telecommunications infrastructure as well as network operations and business development.
