PETAH TIKVA, ISRAEL ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC Network solutions for service providers, critical infrastructures and data center operators, announced that it is working with channel partner KGPCo to upgrade the network infrastructure of Iowa-based CL Tel, a full service telecommunications and broadband service provider. Transitioning to next generation transport technologies will enable CL Tel to continue providing outstanding service to local Clear LakeVentura and Mason City communities. The solution, based on ECI's Apollo and Neptune portfolios, ensures that the CL Tel network is capable of supporting the growing bandwidth demands of its constituency.

To address increasing bandwidth demands and ensure continued support to the communities it serves, CL Tel sought to replace its current fiber optic transport network. Through KGPCo, ECI was chosen to deploy a next-generation solution – a multi-ring, optical transport network which supports Layer2 over MPLS functionality. This will allow CL Tel to reliably meet today's network demands and grow bandwidth as needed. Moreover, the MPLS-TP over ROADM network will provide Ethernet and TDM services with under 50 millisecond protection as required for many mission-critical and legacy services.

The solution makes use of both ECI's Apollo family of optical transport products as well as Neptune product line for packet transport. The systems were built to interwork seamlessly for customers looking for a holistic optical and packet solution. Both systems are completely scalable, open and future ready, with a built-in evolution to SDN, 5G or incorporation into third-party networks as customers see fit. Also, ECI's network management system (NMS), provides intuitive network planning so CL Tel can easily add and grow services and optimize network resources.
