ECI Telecom, announced that Bharti Airtel has chosen ECI’s Neptune (NPT) family of products to expand its mobile backhaul transport capabilities across India to support the increasing demand for bandwidth.

Bharti Airtel Limited is a leading global telecommunications company with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa. Headquartered in New Delhi, India, the company ranks amongst the top 3 mobile service providers globally, with more than 350M subscribers. Bharti chose ECI’s Neptune solutions for their ‘state of the art’ Evolved Packet Transport (EPT) Network.

The Neptune (NPT) solutions will be deployed countrywide and will enable Bharti to provide services efficiently, as it migrates its mobile networks from 2G to 3G to 4G, and eventually to LTE-A. Neptune offers a powerful, efficient, E2E metro-core and aggregation solution for high-performance L1 to L3 services through convergence of IP, Elastic MPLS (IP and TP), Ethernet (MEF CE2.0 certified), OTN and WDM. The platform will evolve to support NFV services and SDN applications, compulsory in future metro environments.

Mr. Sorin Lupu, EVP Global Sales and Marketing at ECI said, “Our Neptune family was developed to help service providers flexibly and cost effectively cope with the surge in data traffic.” Neptune is designed to efficiently and reliably carry packet traffic, while maintaining essential carrier-grade characteristics like low transit latency, hitless protection and restoration mechanisms.

The platforms combine a scalable modular architecture, with a minimal footprint in a rugged solution designed to meet any network topology.  As with all of ECI’s transport products, Neptune is managed by the unified, multilayer LightSoft® NMS that provides full control over tens of thousands of elements and tight monitoring of critical data traversing the network.

ECI is a global provider of ELASTIC network solutions to CSPs, utilities as well as data center operators. Along with its long-standing, industry-proven packet-optical transport. For more information:
