Ribbon Communications Inc.

“Our network needs to handle today’s traffic and anticipate tomorrow’s,” said Meni Baruch, VP Engineering & CTIO at Bezeq. “Ribbon offered us the most comprehensive solution, including Day One readiness for 400 G wavelengths, high scalability and cost efficiencies. We look forward to working together.”

Ribbon is upgrading Bezeq’s Israel-wide network to flexgrid multi-degree DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexing.
