Positions advertised here are related to both the Ekinops360 and the OneAccess portfolios.


Its product portfolio consists of two highly complementary product sets. One, marketed under the EKINOPS 360 brand name, provides a single, fully integrated platform for Metro, Regional, and Long-Haul applications up to 400G.

  • The highly programmable nature of its optical transport solutions leveraging in-house programmable T-Chip technology that in a small footprint provides for low power consumption, short manufacturing times as well as quick introduction of new features via software rather than hardware.
  • Advanced carrier-grade network functions delivered through an extensive portfolio of access platforms: white-box CPE, multi-service routers, Ethernet access devices ; and also as integrated or standalone virtualized network functions.
  • The open and multi-vendor nature of its transport and access solutions.
  • The provision of a seamless migration path to network virtualization and software-defined networks.

As a result, the company sells to 34 of the Top 100 Service Providers and is extremely well-positioned as the industry transitions to software-defined networking and virtualized delivery of network services.
