Akado Telecom picks Infinera for optical network in Moscow

Lightwave Staff

Infinera Corp. (NASDAQ: INFN) says it has helped Akado Telecom (trademark of KOMKOR, OJSC), a major multi-service cable network operator in the Moscow region, launch a high-speed metro fiber-optic network in Moscow and the surrounding region based on Infinera’s DTN and ATN platforms.

With the new metro transport network using Infinera’s Digital Optical Network architecture, Akado will be one of the first fixed network operators in Russia to deploy a next-generation DWDM infrastructure able to support 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) services, according to the vendor.

Russian service providers need to continue investing in their network infrastructure to keep up with growing bandwidth demands while ensuring scalability and maintaining a high level of service quality, says Infinera. These requirements are an important factor in securing customer loyalty, maintaining corporate reputation and intensifying competition for subscribers.

Akado Telecom provides a full range of advanced communication services based on its own fiber-optic network, which extends more than 18,000 km. Akado's multi-service network provides high-speed residential Internet access, voice services, and cable TV services, as well as a broad range of enterprise services for businesses. Infinera says its DTN platform will provide a right-sized platform for the metropolitan core network and the ATN will provide a compact metro aggregation platform with a common network management system for end-to-end point-and-click transport services.

With demand for bandwidth driving 10 Gigabit Ethernet services and emerging interest in 100GbE services coming from their customers, Akado Telecom needed a modern DWDM backbone network with integrated OTN switching capabilities. With its intelligent algorithms managing bandwidth utilization, Infinera says its DTN was chosen by Akado to ensure a higher level of network efficiency, at the same time providing a way to reduce operational and capital costs and ultimately lower total cost of ownership.  

"The new solution we implemented offers us a flexible next generation DWDM network and intelligent tools to rapidly deploy additional bandwidth resources,” said Vitaly Klishin, business development director at Akado Group. “As one of the first service providers in Russia to offer 100GbE services, we are committed to continuously satisfying the needs of over 3,500 enterprises, 350 service providers, and over 12,000 state organizations.”
