Bezeq, one of Israel’s largest service providers is upgrading its network to handle increasing consumer, business and wireless IP traffic.

The company is planning to achieve this thanks to a new flexgrid 400G optical backbone network.

It has selected Ribbon to help upgrade the network to flexgrid multi-degree dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM). It will make use of Ribbon’s Apollo range of optical transport and switching platforms, which use 400G ZR+ pluggable dynamic coherent optics, and delivers dynamic configurability to meet growing and shifting traffic patterns and lower cost-per-bit.

Meni Baruch, VP engineering and CTIO at Bezeq said: ‘Our network needs to handle today’s traffic and anticipate tomorrow’s. Ribbon offered us the most comprehensive solution, including day one readiness for 400G wavelengths, high scalability and cost efficiencies. We look forward to working together.’

Mickey Wilf  Ribbon’s general manager, APAC and MEA added: ‘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.’
