Israel's Tadiran Telecom Business Systems said on Wednesday it had signed a distribution deal with a subsidiary of U.S. telephony giant Sprint. The deal with Sprint Products Group would increase Tadiran's sales next year by 25%, the company said

Tadiran Telecom is the former business products division of telecommunications equipment maker ECI Telecom. It was acquired from ECI last month for $12.5 million by businessman Ron Bregman and Africa Israel Communications.
