Ekinops has won its first major 10Gb/s access contract in Europe with a Tier 1 service provider.

The seven-figure contract is to build an entire communication infrastructure for a major national security agency. It will use Ekinops’ recently released 10G-capable routers, installed in various data centres across the country, to manage keys and security policies according to high availability mechanisms, while offering protection against attacks.

The networking solutions provider recently released its range of 10G-capable Ethernet Access Devices (EAD) and routers for the Enterprise Edge connectivity market with the ambition of entering this high-end segment. After undergoing the validation process necessary to gain acceptance from service providers the products collected favourable feedback, which resulted in this major win.

Philippe Moulin, chief operating officer of access products and services at Ekinops said of the win: ‘This project demonstrates that our solutions can successfully answer the demanding challenges of major national government agencies. The key here is our capacity to deliver a high-throughput, completely integrated multi-function access solution. We are proud to have gained the level of trust required by the service provider and the end-user for this very high-profile project.’

In combination with its 10G routers and VPN gateways, Ekinops will also supply the project with a selection of existing solutions designed for small and medium size enterprise branches, all running on the same middleware, OneOS6.
