Upgrade the optical network — to address capacity goals in the short-term and ensure the network can meet future business services and 5G backhaull needs
ECI was chosen by JT to upgrade the Jersey-based telecommunications company’s optical network.
JT required a solution with the abitlity to not only solve capacity issues, but also provide 10G B to B services, 10GbE data center connectivity and 8G fiber channel. The solution needed to be based on a scalable and agile framework in order to ensure that JT customers could expect the same quality of connectivity they receive today well into the future, even as demands fluctuate and networking evolves.
The ECI solution features a range of products from its Apollo optical portfolio, which will carry 100G traffic between JT’s 6 core sites on and between the Islands. The Apollo product line was designed for ultimate flexibility and scalability, with interchangeable cards, multiport cards which offer additional capabilities and multi-service ports which can be provisioned for a wide variety of protocols and speeds.
