Ekinops, a leading optical transport equipment provider for service providers and enterprises, has been granted the conformity certificate from the Ministry of Communications in Russia. With the EKINOPS 360 platform, service providers and enterprises in Russia will be able to satisfy their metro, regional, and long haul applications with a single system. Its diversity in reach, its broad range of protocols and its application breadth make the EKINOPS 360 transport system an ideal fit for the Russian market.

Growing demand for bandwidth in Russia has created a need for transport solutions that are flexible enough to adapt to the specific needs of that market and that scale cost-effectively. The EKINOPS T-Chip (Transport on a Chip) technology allows for the rapid delivery of cost-optimized, application-specific solutions to fast-growing markets. The EKINOPS 360 40G/100G Wavebonding solution will allow customers to deploy 10G today and then upgrade to 40G when necessary, without losing their investment in 10G. It allows one to combine multiple 10G transponders into a single 40G Muxponder rather than replacing the 10G transponders with a completely different 40G Muxponder.

“We believe that the EKINOPS 360 platform is an ideal fit for the Russian market,” commented Jonathan Amir, VP of sales for Ekinops. “We are already being considered for a number of projects and now that the certification is complete, we can offer our platform to all telecommunications carriers and enterprises in Russia. We are excited about our expansion into this very promising market.”

The certification has been recently awarded and confirms that Ekinops’ solutions meet all mandatory quality, functionality, and interoperability requirements.
