Transtelecom JSC, one of the largest service providers in the Republic of Kazakhstan, has deployed 100G DWDM optical transport equipment from EKINOPS across its country-wide optical network and to the border of China.
Ekinops, a leading supplier of next-generation optical network equipment, announced today its selection by Transtelecom for a new 100G network that crosses Kazakhstan. This forms part of a larger network between China and Western Europe.
Transtelecom owns more than thirteen thousand kilometers of fiber-optic cables throughout Kazakhstan, primarily along the railway lines. Transtelecom wanted to increase its backbone capacity in Kazakhstan and their ability to carry high capacity from China across to Russia. A major requirement for serving customers in China is providing low latency and the EKINOPS solution was able to meet this and other requirements.
Because of the distance and scope of the network, it was important for Transtelecom to minimize the number of regeneration points and keep infrastructure costs low. Transtelecom considered multiple other vendors for this network but chose EKINOPS for its technical capabilities, its competitive price and product reliability.
"EKINOPS promised quick deployment – and delivered. This is not trivial as the environment was quite challenging across long distances and extreme weather conditions” said Saken Baituganov, Executive Commerce Director of Transtelecom. "The network is now live and carrying customer traffic and our customers are very happy."
Kazakhstan is located at a very strategic junction and this terrestrial network provides an alternative route to the submarine cables linking China to Western Europe. “Vast amounts of data are being transported from China to the West and we are very proud to help Transtelecom in this project,” said Francois Xavier Ollivier, EKINOPS' Chief Operating Officer. “The expected growth in capacity in that region is very large and our scalable platform is fully designed to support this growth.”
