EKINOPS Announces 600G FlexRate Solution

EKINOPS Announces 600G FlexRate Solution

EKINOPS (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI), a leading supplier of optical transport equipment and router solutions for service providers and telecom operators, today announces its new PM 400FRS04-SF flexible rate line module.  This new module triples the capacity of EKINOPS highly successful 200G FlexRate solutions and delivers new levels of flexibility to address market demand for advanced transport capabilities.

Triples capacity with a new level of programmability

Supporting high-speed coherent line interfaces from 100Gbps to 600Gbps, the PM 400FRS04-SF provides six QSFP28 client ports aggregated to a software selectable line port that automatically configures the modulation format and baud rate to create the optimal transport link. Simply by selecting the bit rate and distance, the PM 400FRS04-SF automatically tunes its performance based on the settings so it can support any application from very short reach, very high capacity data center interconnect to long haul and even submarine transport.  It can be installed in any EKINOPS 360 chassis allowing customers to upgrade their networks without having to replace their existing equipment. 

With this next generation of technology, EKINOPS is cutting per 100G port costs in half compared to the previous generation while improving operational efficiency by lowering the footprint and power consumption required to deliver a gigabit of data.  By delivering higher rate channels, PM 400FRS04 increases fiber capacity at the same time it simplifies network operations as fewer wavelengths need to be managed.

The PM 400FRS04-SF also provides another level of flexibility beyond its FlexRate capabilities with its support for single fiber transport.  Bi-directional operation over a single fiber strand significantly reduces operational expense by allowing service providers to cut their fiber costs in half.  Alternatively, single fiber operation can also be used to generate additional revenue on dual fiber spans by allowing each fiber to support different applications such as metro and long haul, and giving service providers the ability to generate better ROI from their fiber investment.

“The release of our PM 400FRS04-SF just fifteen months after we released our 200G FlexRate solutions is a proud moment for EKINOPS,” said François Xavier Ollivier, Chief Operating Officer at Ekinops. “Tripling the line rate and adding functionality to our FlexRate solutions while also eliminating operational complexity is quite an achievement in that kind of timeframe.  The market is advancing faster than ever and it is important EKINOPS continue to provide the solutions our customers demand.”

The new PM 400FRS04-SF is already receiving strong interest from customers in both Europe and North America and will be generally available in the first quarter of 2019.
