PETAH TIKVA, Israel, April 15 -- ECI Telecom announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the optical activities and technology of Eastern Communications Co. Inc.

The operations of the acquired unit will be merged with ECI's existing joint venture, Hangzhou ECI Telecommunications Co. Ltd.

"This is part of ECI's strategy to expand and diversify its global development resources and augment its focused product line.
