ECI Telecom has announced a next generation San extension product designed for transport networks to meet the growing market demand for business-critical services.
ECI's new BroadGate San XT enables disaster recovery and business continuity with a throughput of up to 2.5Gbps for high-end storage applications over long distances - up to 1,600km.
The company believes that the new technology will allow it to introduce new storage transport services to enterprise customers over their existing networks. With San XT, ECI says, traffic won't be interrupted in the event of hardware or line problems, such as a fibre cut or power failure. The company says that business-critical data is protected 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
