Ekinops, a leading supplier of next-generation optical network equipment for high-speed telecommunications networks, has been selected by Orange to supply 100G solutions for its very high capacity international long haul networks.
In order to meet the needs of telecommunications operators faced with the explosion of often unpredictable data traffic, EKINOPS has developed a long haul 100G solution that increases the capacity of existing optical networks. This solution, based on the EKINOPS 360 platform, will be deployed by Orange starting in the second half of 2016, on segments of its terrestrial high-speed broadband network, which represents 18,000 km of optical fiber in France and internationally (Europe, USA and Singapore).
By facilitating the deployment and increasing the capacity of the major international routes, this technology will enable Orange to better serve its subsidiaries and corporate clients worldwide, as well as customers in the wholesale market.
Jean-Luc Vuillemin, Senior Vice President International Networks, Infrastructures & Services at Orange, said:
“This EKINOPS 100G solution, powerful and simple to set up, meets very well our challenges of increasing our high-capacity routes, which we want fast and flexible.”
Didier Brédy, Chief Executive Officer of Ekinops, said:
“We are very proud to have earned Orange's trust for this strategic application with massive potential and to offer an innovative solution to one of the largest carriers. This validates that our strategy and Ekinops’ products are in line with the requirements of Tier 1 service providers.”
After a laboratory test period and further field tests, Orange has validated the EKINOPS solution as it can be deployed quickly and is quite easy to manage, operate and integrate into existing networks, thanks to the solution’s interoperability with other equipment on the market.
