ECI Telecom (Nasdaq:ECIL) unit Lightscape Networks today announced a new contract with U.K.-based broadband service provider ntl.

ntl will be deploying its enhanced XDM optical platform with 10Gbps capability.

Lightscape did not divulge the scope of the deal, but industry sources estimate it at a few million dollars.

ntl will be using Lightscape's XDM to provide high speed connectivity between its U.K. backbone network and other carrier networks.

Lightscape Networks' XDM currently provides ntl with a high-speed IP interconnect with affiliate communications and information services providers, as well as an easy migration path to optical services through its single platform architecture.
