ECI, Actelis complete first successful customer tests of iSMART's DSM L3 technology.


Israel's ECI Telecom (NASDAQ: ECIL) and California-based Actelis Networks, founding members of the iSMART consortium, said on Tuesday they have completed the first successful customer tests of the consortium's Dynamic Spectrum Management Level 3 (DSM L3) technology.

Testing conducted by three leading Tier-1 operators has proven that the iSMART Consortium's DSM L3 technology practically eliminates crosstalk interference between twisted copper pairs so that the highest-speed DSL services can be more efficiently provided over longer distances in existing copper access loops.

Most of the world's existing access wire-line infrastructure is still copper-based. Using existing copper wire, VDSL2 technology enables operators to offer service exceeding 100Mb/s. But without DSM L3, VDSL2 is limited in its practical reach.

The companies said that testing shows that iSMART DSM L3 technology can dramatically increase the reach of high-speed, high-value VDSL2 services, effectively multiplying the coverage area of VDSL2 equipment by a factor of ten in some cases.

The iSMART Consortium was launched at Broadband World Forum 2006 with the goal of developing and commercialising DSM technology.

Founded in 1961, Israel-based ECI Telecom delivers customer-focused networking solutions to the world's largest carriers. The company is also a market leader in many emerging markets.

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in California's Silicon Valley, Actelis Networks markets, develops and manufactures Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) over copper solutions.
