Ekinops, a leading provider of next generation solutions for metro, regional and long-haul optical transport and aggregation, has been chosen by next generation operator BSO Communication to provide optimized optical transport solutions for their network.
In addition to typical transport applications, BSO Communication was interested in a capability that would allow it to differentiate its service offerings to customers from those offered by other service providers. Upon BSO Communication’s request, EKINOPS was able to deliver the capability to offer rate-managed 10Gig (10 gigabit per second) services and full rate GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) services over the same 10Gig wavelength. This enables BSO Communication to offer tailored services, while utilizing network bandwidth efficiently.
Thanks to the T-Chip, Ekinops’ innovative dynamic and programmable transport-on-a-chip technology at the heart of its 360 platform, the implementation of this differentiated and unique service offering has been a success, done in record time, allowing BSO Communication to be responsive to customer needs.
BSO Communication is the first Next Generation Operator to provide network solutions, integration services, and web hosting to its customers. With strong growth, BSO Communication is today present in more than 10 countries: France, Great Britain, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, and Hong Kong (China). For BSO Communication – in addition to allowing for the delivery of new and unique services quickly – the EKINOPS 360 transport system architecture, based on the T-Chip technology, provides the highest standard of reliability.
BSO Communication will be using the EKINOPS 360 platform for:
“As a Next Generation Operator, our customers expect the highest level of flexibility from us in providing them with services that meet their needs. Efficient and unique use of our network bandwidth allows us to better respond to this customer demand,” said Frederic Dhieux, Technical Manager at BSO Communication. “With the EKINOPS 360 platform, our major objective was to optimize the use of the bandwidth in our network while bringing a 10Gbps connection to our customers”.
“The flexibility brought by the EKINOPS 360 platform and this new 10 Gbps multi-service capability enabled BSO Communication to differentiate itself in the market, thanks to a significant cost advantage resulting from improved management of services to clients across the board,” said Sebastien Bernard, Sales Director of Northern Europe for Ekinops.
EKINOPS developed this project in record time, two months, added Bernard. “Thanks to the T-Chip, EKINOPS was able to deploy the technology extremely rapidly compared with what other equipment manufacturers could have done,” he emphasized.
“We are pleased that our T-Chip technology has once again allowed us to quickly deliver market differentiating capability for our customers,” added Rob Adams, Vice President of Global Marketing for Ekinops. “The dynamic nature of the T-Chip allows us to respond quickly to our customers’ needs and provides them with a level of comfort that the EKINOPS 360 platform will be able to keep them ahead of their peers when it comes to new, innovative, and cost-effective service offerings.”
