Bezeq taps Ribbon to upgrade Israel network

Israeli telecommunications company Bezeq has selected Ribbon Communications to carry increasing IP traffic loads via a new flexgrid 400G optical backbone network with multi-degree DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexing).

Bezeq will make use of Ribbon’s Apollo range of optical transport and switching platforms, which use 400G ZR+ pluggable dynamic coherent optics, and deliver dynamic configurability to meet the growing and shifting traffic patterns and lower cost-per-bit.

"Our network needs to handle today's traffic and anticipate tomorrow's," said Meni Baruch, VP Engineering & CTIO at Bezeq. "Ribbon offered us the most comprehensive solution, including Day One readiness for 400 G wavelengths, high scalability, and cost efficiencies. We look forward to working together."

“We’re delighted to be supporting Bezeq with a solution that combines network capability, a smooth transition path to next-generation requirements, and measurable cost-efficiencies as they continue to meet the traffic requirements for their consumer, business, and wireless customers,” said Mickey Wilf, Ribbon’s general manager for APAC and MEA.

Ribbon Communications delivers communications software, IP, and optical networking solutions to service providers, enterprises, and critical infrastructure sectors globally.
