Ekinops, a leading provider of next-generation optical transport solutions to carriers and private network operators, has deployed a single-fiber solution, upgradable to 100G (100 gigabits per second), for the Paris-Chartres section of the new Celieno optical network.
REG.I.E.S. (Regie Intercommunale d’Energies et de Services), a utility and telecom company that provides electrical, gas and high-speed broadband services to the Chartres region of northern France, is developing a major optical fiber network in the Eure-et-Loir region of France. This network, named Celieno, will provide operators and telecom service providers with an optical fiber infrastructure to bring very high speed services to users. The Celieno infrastructure is designed to bring fiber to homes and businesses and to incorporate wireless local loops.
To handle the increased data traffic on its network and offer higher bandwidths to key customers, Celieno evaluated equipment from several providers for increasing the capacity of its optical links between data centers in Chartres and those in the Paris region.
Celieno chose the 100G-compatible single-fiber solution from EKINOPS to deploy a multi-protocol DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) link which can handle multiple wavelengths in both directions, transmitting and receiving over a single optical fiber. The use of optical amplifiers and DynaFEC forward error correction technology from EKINOPS allows several protocols to be transported over long distances without the need for repeaters.
With the EKINOPS single-fiber solution, Celieno can reduce recurring fiber costs and gain better control over future capacity upgrades. The solution deployed by EKINOPS will allow for rapid upgrading, thanks to its coherent 100G technology.
“Since 2006, we have been using the high-end 10G platform developed by Ekinops. This has proven itself to be extremely reliable and performs very well," said Alain Guillottin, Director of REG.I.E.S. "In order to reach this new and important milestone in the development of our network, we wanted to re-evaluate the solutions offered by the main providers in this market. On conclusion of the consultation, we are particularly happy to be able to continue our collaboration with Ekinops, who has offered us a high-performance single-fiber solution which is both technologically advanced and can be upgraded to 100G as we grow our capacity in the future.”
EKINOPS (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI), a leading supplier of optical transport and router solutions, today announces the launch of a new software brand, Compose, which brings the company’s network access and optical transport software products together.
EKINOPS (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI), a leading supplier of telecommunications solutions for telecom operators, has published its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019 as approved by the Board of Directors on February 25, 2020. The audit of the consolidated financial statements has been completed and the certification report will be issued after specific checks.
Orange Business Services has chosen EKINOPS and Dell Technologies as partners for a new universal customer premise equipment (uCPE) solution. This platform plays a key role in network transformation, including software defined networking (SDx), providing customers with increased business agility, flexibility and simplicity in service deployment.
