ECI Unveils New MSAN Features

ECI Telecom has unveiled new features to its Hi-FOCuS-5 Multi-Service Access Node (MSAN) products. The MSANs new traffic management capabilities help service providers increase flexibility through optimal bandwidth management, improving delivery of IPTV and other video services, ECI said.

The Hi-FOCuS MSAN, which supports more than 1 million subscribers, provides higher and more differentiated QoS granularity, as bandwidth can be managed at different levels, depending on the service requested and the customers’ needs. ECI’s equipment also is able to distinguish multicast traffic from unicast traffic within the same stream and prioritize them to avoid traffic congestion toward the network, the company said.

Other new features provide increased capacity, allowing up to 10GB per service slot for non-blocking deployment of all service types, including data, voice and video over copper and fiber into any network architecture.

The Hi-FOCuS MSAN provides support for multi-fiber access both GPON and point-to-point Ethernet, xDSL, voice emulation and voice simulation within a single platform.

ECI also is expanding its MSAN offering by introducing improved service blades, the company said. ECI’s xDSL service blades make use of the same base card and further enhancements toward multiservice capabilities are offered with a higher density VDSL2 card, supporting 48 subscribers; a new, four-port GPON blade supporting up to a 128 split; and support for non-blocking 64 concurrent voice lines. ECI also has full interoperability with leading softswitch vendors.
