Kvant Telecom Deploys Ekinops Coherent 100G between Moscow and Kharkov

Russian service provider Kvant Telecom has selected Ekinops, a leading supplier of next generation optical transport equipment, to provide coherent 100G transmission between Moscow and the Ukrainian city of Kharkov.

The 100G service is deployed over an existing DWDM system as alien wavelengths and provides Kvant Telecom a massive increase in capacity. It also allows Kvant Telecom to expand its offering to include native 100G services for its diverse domestic and international customers.

Kvant Telecom, founded in 2007, offers a broad range of communications services to commercial and residential customers via more than 1,500 kilometers of fiber and more than 100 nodes throughout eastern Russia.

The Ekinops 100G equipment is part of the Ekinops 360 family and is extremely compact at just 1RU height. It can be configured as a 100G transponder or 100G muxponder for aggregation of 10G services into 100G. The Ekinops 360 devices are located in Moscow and Voronezh in Russia and at a collocation site in Kharkov in Ukraine. From Kharkov, the 100G link is further extended to Kiev and Lviv in Ukraine, and then on to Frankfurt, Germany.

“The ultra-high performance and small form factor of our Ekinops 360 platform allowed Kvant Telecom to seamlessly integrate our 100G solution," said Didier Bredy, CEO of Ekinops. "This complements the Ekinops 20G services already deployed over their existing DWDM network for more than a year."

“The Ekinops solution is meeting perfectly our technical expectations," said Alexander Torohov, General Director of Kvant Telecom. "It allows us to address the huge demand we are seeing to connect Moscow with other European hubs. We are particularly impressed by the optical performance of the Ekinops 100G product, its small footprint, low power consumption and cost which will hold down our overall cost of ownership."

The Ekinops 360 is Ekinops' flagship next-generation optical transport platform, providing DWDM and CWDM (dense and coarse wavelength division multiplexing) on a single platform for metro, regional, and long-haul applications. It handles service rates from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps. It offers a broad portfolio of services, including SONET/SDH, Fibre Channel, FICON, video, Ethernet, and Infiniband.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
