Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Deutsche Telekom has added ECI Telecom to the list of suppliers for its ADSL network. ECI will be working through its local German partner DeTeWe and will be supplying its ADSL-based Hi-FOCuS Broadband Access to the Home system. The Deutsche Telekom system is intended to provide broadband Internet, video and multimedia services to an initial 28,000 subscribers in eight cities, rising to 43 cities subsequently. Deployment will be carried out through to the end of 2000. One of the advantages of Hi-FOCuS, says ECI, is that it allows different kinds of services to be carried over the same copper infrastructure, and its traffic management capabilities allow it to support four classes of service, which will allow Deutsche Telekom to produce differentiated services for different classes of subscriber. The order is the second major deal ECI has struck recently. It won its first commercial order earlier this year from Kingston Communications of the UK, which is introducing a service next month. ®
