The State of Minnesota has chosen the EKINOPS 360 multi-reach transport platform for a new optical network that connects multiple state agencies and provides cost-effective broadband connection points throughout the government. The EKINOPS 360 was chosen for its operational simplicity, its ability to scale, and its economic advantages.
After an exhaustive search of available systems, Minnesota chose the EKINOPS 360 platform for its scalability, economy, and simplicity of operation. Now that the equipment is deployed, it has proven in as promised for Minnesota.
The EKINOPS 360 platform is ideal for the state of Minnesota in that it allows the state to cost-effectively utilize a single platform for all distances, whether regional, metro, or long haul. The EKINOPS 360 platform also provides numerous advantages that allowed the state of Minnesota to reduce both capital and infrastructure expense. In addition, the EKINOPS 360 platform offers minimal incremental cost as bandwidth is added.
With the EKINOPS 360 at the core of the network, the architecture features protected 10G wavelengths linking key points in Minnesota’s state government. The new network has been live since October 2009.
“The cost-effectiveness of Ekinops’ equipment was key to Minnesota’s choice of provider,” noted Rob Adams, Vice President of Global Marketing for Ekinops. “Thanks to our focus on lowering capital and infrastructure costs, EKINOPS can provide superior performance at an attractive price. We not only kept the initial cost of ownership low for Minnesota, but we also provided the state a solution that provides virtually unlimited bandwidth potential for IP, voice, video, and storage area network traffic and that minimizes the incremental cost of growth.”
The EKINOPS 360, the flagship platform for Ekinops, is a carrier-class optical transport solution for metro, regional, and long-haul networks. Thanks to the T-Chip technology, the EKINOPS 360 equipment packs its transport intelligence into a highly compact and efficient design, reducing costs, footprint, ongoing power consumption, and manufacturing delivery times to customers.
