EKINOPS announced today that Symphony has selected Ekinops’ 360 Multi-Service Multi-Reach transport platform, a next generation optical networking solution to aggregate and transport Gigabit Ethernet circuits over Symphony’s 10G optical architecture. Symphony selected Ekinops’ network solution to address the fast growing networking requirements of its carrier and ISP customers in the metropolitan Bangkok area.
Symphony, a Thailand-based telecommunications company, uses optical technology and network infrastructure services to cover domestic data transmission and other applications to enterprises as well as telecommunications service providers in the country. The solution is based on Ekinops’ flagship platform; the EKINOPS 360 and its Gigabit Ethernet aggregation, transport, and ADM capabilities which allow for cost effective use of network resources while transporting Ethernet. The EKINOPS solution requires Symphony to deploy only a single 10G wavelength to transport multiple Gigabit Ethernet circuits, optimizing the use of its metro fiber resources.
“We chose the EKINOPS solution because we were looking for a high performance, cost effective, scalable and flexible solution allowing us to deploy and transport Gigabit Ethernet Circuits over metro spans of varying distances,” commented Teerapum Piyaosotsan, Manager Network Planning of Symphony. “We like the EKINOPS solution as it is a versatile platform offering point to point, Daisy Chain and add drop Gigabit Ethernet capabilities over a Layer one 10G transport and distribution architecture which is a unique capability giving us an unrivalled flexibility to provide services to our customers. Lastly, EKINOPS has delivered the service in a record time allowing us to exceed our customer expectations.”
“We are delighted to work with Symphony and Telescience, an EKINOPS partner for our first deployment in Thailand,” said Marc Olivier, Vice President Asia of Ekinops. “This deployment illustrates the value proposition we bring to our customers perfectly. Ekinops’ multi-reach metro, regional, and long haul aggregation and DWDM optical transport platform, based on Ekinops’ T-Chip (Transport on a chip) technology, has allowed us to deliver rapidly a carrier class Ethernet and optical networking solution in a very compact, modular and flexible platform with the industry lowest total cost of ownership. Our solution in turn allows our customers, like Symphony, to maximize their return on investment using best in class technology.”
The EKINOPS Ethernet ADM capability is part of the EKINOPS 360 platform and is an ideal solution for transporting Gigabit Ethernet and SONET/SDH traffic in optical transport networks. The EKINOPS Ethernet ADM solution allows service providers to aggregate Gigabit Ethernet from many different sites over a shared wavelength rather than over individual wavelengths to each site as is required by other solutions. Using Ethernet ADM aggregation reduces the number of wavelengths in any CWDM or DWDM network and lowers the cost of the entire network.
