Ekinops Expands 360 Optical Networking Platform with 100G Solution Optimized for Metro and Regional Applications
PARIS --(Business Wire)--
a leading provider of next-generation optical transport solutions to
carriers and private network operators, introduced today its new 100G
solution optimized for metro and regional network applications.
The solution was designed specifically for network operators who need to
cost-effectively move massive amounts of data between multiple sites and
cover distances of up to 1000 km.
"We took the time to talk to a number of large network operators to
understand the requirements that were critical for their applications,"
noted Francois Xavier Ollivier, COO of Ekinops (News - Alert). "They told us they
wanted coherent 100G, not only for their long-haul applications but also
for their metro and regional networks, in order to increase capacity and
"That's exactly what we have delivered and are launching now, with an
unmatched performance-over-cost rtio."
Ekinops' 100G metro and regional solution leverages true coherent
technology as the foundation for a new 100G transponder and 100G
muxponder. The 100G modules can be deployed in Ekinops' compact C200HC
chassis (2RU) and C600HC chassis (7RU). Each chassis can support
multiple modules for very high density.
Thanks to its expertise in delivering highly integrated systems, Ekinops
has produced an extremely energy-efficient, compact, high-capacity metro
solution, one that yields significant operational savings for customers.
"One of Ekinops' missions is to provide simple, quick, and
easy-to-install solutions," Ollivier said. "This new metro/regional
offering combined with our amplifiers supporting auto turn-up,
auto-tuning, and auto-balancing will make the deployment virtually
plug-and-play. This will give carriers great service velocity and
adaptability for both anticipated and unanticipated growth."
Ekinops is a leading supplier of next-generation optical transport
equipment for telecommunications service providers. The Ekinops 360
addresses Metro, Regional, and Long-Haul applications with a single,
highly-integrated platform. Ekinops is a market-leading innovator in
100G transport with a coherent line of products that truly optimizes
