Ekinops has introduced two new flexible rate line modules – the PM 200FRS02 and PM 200FRS02-SF – that lower the cost of optical transport while improving network efficiency and flexibility. A major Spanish wholesale operator is one of the first customers to deploy this new solution.
HARRISBURG, PA – The Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research (KINBER), Pennsylvania’s statewide research, education and community networking organization, has vastly increased its capacity and service capability over its statewide PennREN backbone infrastructure using optical networking equipment from Ekinops.
Since the introduction of coherent technologies, the cost of high speed optical transport has declined at a rate unsurpassed in the history of the industry. One of the benefits of coherent technology is that it allows high speed channels to operate over links that, in the past, have not even be able to support 10G, giving it an enormous advantage from a cost / performance standpoint. In today’s market, 100G transport is available at the cost of what 10G was only a few short years ago while 200G is beginning to make inroads into metro-access and even metro-regional networks. This paper explains how Ekinops, a leader in deploying high speed 100G and 200G “alien wavelengths” on existing line systems, can boost the transport capacity of your existing network without impacting existing services at a cost point that makes advances your business case from concept to reality.
