ECI Telecom signed a $59 million contract to provide a nationwide optical backbone network to Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad, a government-owned utility in Costa Rica. Under the contract, which was expected to start in about three months and be completed over a 21-month period, ECI said Monday that it would deploy a complete optical transmission network and the entire infrastructure installation, based on its XDM Multi-Service Provisioning Platform. The network would provide ICE with the capacity needed to deliver voice and data services to fixed and mobile subscribers. ECI Telecom would provide all aspects of the fiber installation and design; supply the fiber optic cables; dig the fiber canals; and duct the fiber installation of more than 1,000 km. across the urban and rural areas of Costa Rica. “This is one of the largest and most strategic infrastructure projects in Costa Rica, and we have great confidence in ECI’s field-proven experience to undertake such an important turnkey assignment,” said Claudio Bermudez, telecommunications general manager of ICE. The contract is subject to final approval by the general comptroller of Costa Rica.
