Radiográfica Costarricense, a telecom operator in Central America, has selected ECI’s XDM MSPP solutions. ECI was selected based on its capabilities to offer several key technologies on a single platform - SDH, Ethernet and WDM - in order to assist RACSA with its aggressive expansion efforts in Costa Rica.
Radiográfica Costarricense (RACSA), which provides data, Ethernet, and Internet services in Costa Rica, will expand its network with ECI Telecom's XDM Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP). ECI was chosen for its ability to combine SDH, Ethernet switching and WDM on a single, converged platform. The network will be managed by ECI’s LightSoft multi-layer network management system, delivering an end-to-end solution to manage the different equipments, network segments and technologies under one management system.
Faced with increased competition in Costa Rica, RACSA has begun a major expansion project to provide more data services as well as add video and voice services to its customers. To support its aggressive expansion efforts, RACSA issued an open invitation to leading equipment vendors to provide transport offerings to support its existing and future networks. ECI's Global Services Division unit, together with ECI Costa Rica staff, have as a result worked closely with RACSA to allow the full deployment of an end-to-end turnkey project. In addition, ECI is now concluding with RACSA the expansion of the network.
With RACSA as a new customer to ECI in Costa Rica, ECI’s XDM MSPP Platform is now utilised by the two largest carriers in the country. "ECI is heavily involved in Costa Rica, as we see there the perfect fit between our solutions and the growth potential in the country," commented Jacob Margalit, VP Sales, Central America & Caribbean, ECI Telecom. "We fully support the development of the country's telecommunications sector with platforms that are efficient, innovative and most importantly, cost-effective."
