ECI takes Carrier Ethernet OSS high road

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

October 23 2008 regarding carrier Ethernet and management trends.
ECI is reportedly moving into Carrier Ethernet more strongly and taking the OSS high road that we predicted would be needed in our recent TCO study on Ethernet versus MPLS.

The company has special focus on synchronization, essential in wireless backhaul applications for anything other than 4G services because of the use of T-carrier trunking for voice, and also software tools to improve Ethernet management integration with OSS/BSS.

In a separate story, Light Reading reports that Soapstone founder Larry Dennison is starting a company that will focus on virtualization and support for service componentization and assembly, for both Carrier Ethernet and other technologies. We believe this space, which has been critical for years now, is finally getting some attention.
