Cablenet Implements Ekinops Single Fiber Transport System

By admin, June 6, 2012 9:27 pm

Cablenet Communication Systems Ltd recently announced that it has obtained infrastructure from Ekinops?(News – Alert), thereby boosting the capacity of its optical network. Cablenet’s fiber infrastructure will be optimized with the implementation of the Ekinops solution, which permits bidirectional transfer over one optical fiber.

Cablenet will be using the Ekinops 360 optical transport platform, which facilitates WDM or Wavelength Division Multiplexing, thereby augmenting the traffic over one fiber. casino online . Two fibers are generally needed by majority of optical transport systems for transmitting optical data. However, only one fiber is used by the Ekinops 360 transport system, thereby offering maximum capacity single fiber transport capabilities in the industry. Users are also offered an option to select single or dual fiber transport by the Ekinops 360 transport system.

In a release, Antonis Vasili, technical director for Cablenet, said, “We selected Ekinops because of the company’s ability to provide what we needed over a single fiber and we have been very pleased with its performance. Installation of the equipment went flawlessly and it has turned out to be a very robust and cost-effective solution both from a CAPEX as well as OPEX?(News – Alert) standpoint.”

Cablenet started its operation in 2003 as a cable TV provider and has expanded its operations into fixed telephony and Internet access services. Cablenet launched a maiden triple-play package in 2007. Residential consumers and businesses are now offered high-bandwidth and other ground-breaking services by Cablenet.

Rob Adams?(News – Alert), VP of Marketing for Ekinops, said, “At Ekinops, we have a unique focus on scaling the cost of transport, which starts with reducing the cost of a customer’s infrastructure. Our ability to transmit large numbers of services over a single fiber combined with our ability to carry long distances without the need for in-line amplifiers reduces the initial high costs of infrastructure typically required when utilizing transport systems.”

Huge volumes of 10G services can be transferred over a single fiber by the Ekinops 360 transport system. In-line amplifiers are not required by the Ekinops 360 transport system for transferring services over long distances. Cablenet will therefore be able to considerably decrease its transport infrastructure expenses due to the blending of these two capabilities.
