  • ECI Telecom

PETACH TIKVA, ISRAEL — ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC Network solutions for service providers, critical infrastructures and data center operators, announced it was awarded a contract by CEB FiberNet, a subsidiary of the Central Electricity Board in Mauritius, to expand and leverage its existing fiber optic network coverage to provide advanced telecom services and connectivity to the country as a whole and to realize the country's vision of a Digital 2030. With expanded capabilities, CEB FiberNet is able to provide customers with better quality of service including coverage, voice quality, connectivity and network resilience.

As Mauritius continues to expand its economy, growth of the financial sector and information and communication technology have helped attract substantial investment from local and foreign investors. To aid these efforts, as well as support increasing demand and new telecom and IT services, CEB FiberNet wanted to make low-cost, high-quality telecom services available across the country by leveraging its internal ICT infrastructure and OPGW fiber-optic backbone.

Apollo Optical and Neptune Metro Series
Like all mission-critical utilities, the CEB network has particular requirements, which made it very important to collaborate with a vendor who understands both the electricity and telecommunication business. ECI not only has the experience with power utilities such as CEB, but specifically with utility customers making the transition to UTelcos. ECI was awarded the contract to implement the optical grid based on its Apollo optical and Neptune metro series.

By working with ECI, CEB FiberNet will be almost completely self-sufficient, offering value-added services such as integrated optical performance and health monitoring, cutting-edge resource utilization and inventory tools that flag capacity constraints before they occur. Moreover, the flexible solutions and the managed services offered by ECI will enable CEB FiberNet to future-proof its network and defer future challenges.

"The move to become a wholesale telecom service provider was a major decision for CEB and its subsidiary CEB FiberNet, and with mission-critical requirements, our choice of a partner to help in that transition goes well beyond the needs of a traditional communications provider," said Rajeshkumar Babu, CEO at FiberNet. "In ECI, we know that we've not only found a company that understands our pain-points, but also has the experience helping power utilities, like us, make the transition to become a telecom provider. ECI provided a full turnkey solution meeting the bid specifications, which has helped expand our network coverage, while supporting in the economic development of Mauritius. Truly priceless."
