Motorola Fiber-to-the Node (FTTN)

New Strategic Relationship with ECI Telecom Extends Motorola’s Portfolio of Ultra-Broadband Offerings for Carriers

April 11, 2007

Horsham, PA and San Antonio, Texas – Motorola, Inc. and ECI Telecom (NASDAQ: ECIL) today announced a new strategic relationship pairing ECI’s formidable IP DSLAM portfolio with Motorola’s innovative and market-leading Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) and Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) solutions.

With increasing consumer demand for higher-speed broadband driven by the explosive growth in bandwidth-intensive content and peer-to-peer (P2P) applications, carriers are recognizing the need for Ultra-Broadband access network solutions.

This multi-year agreement provides Motorola access to ECI’s complete portfolio of proven, carrier class access infrastructure products including Outside Plant (OSP) and Central Office (CO) IP DSLAM solutions. Designed to maximize bandwidth potential and help increase service delivery efficiency, the IP DSLAM is supported by a premier IP/Ethernet switching fabric and deep Quality-of-Service (QoS) assurance capabilities.

“Motorola couldn’t have chosen a better technology ally than ECI for extending its Ultra-Broadband access portfolio,” said Erik Keith, Senior Analyst for Broadband Infrastructure at Current Analysis. “ECI’s award-winning solutions deliver a rich array of access network and QoS features such as integrated data, video and voice that clearly position the company as a leading IP DSLAM provider." Current Analysis has recently ranked ECI's leading IP platform as the top CO DSLAM in the market.

“ECI’s technology and ability to capture market share at such a rapid rate makes it a compelling player in both the Ultra-Broadband Access and IPTV markets,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing and business development, Motorola Connected Home Solutions. “This relationship extends our portfolio of video-optimized FTTN and FTTP solutions and rounds out Motorola’s global strategy to help enable service delivery over any carrier and cable access network architecture.”

“Motorola’s widely recognized global brand and customer relationships make them the ideal ally for ECI,” said Ido Gur, ECI’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "This strategic relationship will help strengthen ECI's position in the access arena, specifically in North America, and help enhance Motorola's position as a leading provider of Ultra-Broadband access solutions for carrier customers.”

The new agreement between Motorola and ECI gives Motorola the global rights to brand, market, and sell ECI’s portfolio of access infrastructure solutions. The focus of the relationship is on the OSP and IP DSLAM products. Motorola will be investing in integration of these platforms into their current Ultra-Broadband access portfolio and hence will have an exclusivity period for the North American market.
