ECI enhances LightAPPS, SDN capabilities

ECI has enhanced its LightCONNECT bandwidth-on-demand app with Lambda on demand capabilities, the company said.

This is another, in a growing line of SDN applications and enhanced networking capabilities, which the company has launched over the last year under the umbrella of LightAPPS. Lambda on demand is designed to provide optical networks with on demand capabilities.

ECI´s LightCONNECT app provides bandwidth on demand for dynamic services and bursty applications. LightCONNECT enables customers to allocate the required bandwidth on demand, as needs change, but without long provisioning cycles. Lambda on demand affords the same deliverables to optical networks like ECI´s Apollo, by allocating the necessary number of wavelengths at the designated time. This will shorten service turn up time on both packet and optical networks.

ECI is a provider of ELASTIC Network solutions for service providers, utilities, data center operators and national research and education networks (NREN) as well as data center operators. The company offers a variety of SDN/NFV applications, end-to-end network management and a cyber security solution.
