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.
