Mediaserv chooses EKINOPS for Broadband Optical Network in Off-Shore Territories

Ekinops, a leading provider of next generation solutions for CWDM and DWDM metro, regional and long haul optical transport, is pleased to announce the deployment of its EKINOPS 360 platform in French off-shore territories by Mediaserv. The Broadband networks of the Martinique1 region, French Guyana2 region and La Reunion3 region will receive this platform. As an integral part of the core network, Ekinops’ equipment helps fulfill Mediaserv’s long term strategy to satisfy growing demand for additional bandwidth in the off-shore territories.

EKINOPS has been working with Mediaserv since the beginning of 2008 to implement an optical network, the purpose of which is to transport High Speed Internet traffic amongst the three off-shore territories of French Guyana, Martinique and La Réunion. According to Ehsan Emami, President of Mediaserv, ease of use for implementing Ekinops’ solution was a deciding factor in choosing Ekinops."EKINOPS fulfilled two crucial requirements of our network, efficiency in terms of implementation and sustainable reliability."

Ekinops’ compact design and low power consumption make it ideal for deployment in off-shore territories. Ehsan Emami continues: “In deploying our network, we have faced several operating constraints including the very erratic quality of the optical fiber available, the need for multi-protocol aggregation, and the need for a small form factor to integrate the equipment in a standard street telecom closet”. He adds: “EKINOPS was the first manufacturer to propose a solution satisfying all of our criteria while meeting our economical criteria.”

"The flexibility and the performance of the EKINOPS 360 platform ensures Mediaserv valuable operating versatility allowing the ability to adapt to changes in evolution easily as the needs of its customers change in a rapidly growing market." stated Sébastien Bernard, EKINOPS Northern Europe Sales Director.

Mediaserv will take advantage of Ekinops’ long reach attributed to DynaFEC (EKINOPS state of the art FEC software capability for extending reach) as well as Ekinops’ ability to transmit large channel counts over a single fiber (rather than two fibers as is required by many transport systems). Also, using a combination of Ekinops’ DynaMux (Mutliplexing any mix of services on a single wavelength) and the EKINOPS multi-protocol ADM capability, the EKINOPS 360 optical transport platform will enable Mediaserv to transport data traffic (GbE) with TDM traffic (SDH) and achieve the adding and dropping of individual GbE/SDH services in multiple remote sites using only a single 10Gb/s channel. Compared to competing CWDM and DWDM systems, the EKINOPS 360 platform offers a cheaper, smaller and simpler solution.
